Death metal legends return
Legendary Baltimore Death Metallers PESSIMIST have returned to Slaughter the Faithful in 2015 with a special reissue of this classic album from Obscure Musick. Slaughtering the Faithful is PESSIMIST’sfastest, most lethal and most blasphemous CD. Produced by Erik Rutan (MORBID ANGEL, HATE ETERNAL) and digitally re-mastered by Juan “Punchy” Gonzalez (Live sound for NILE, MORBID ANGEL), the album is a timeless classic. Featuring art by Jon Zig, the CD is filled with sadistic, blackened Death Metal, in the vein of KRISIUN, HATE ETERNAL, and IMMOLATION.
This special CD release also includes bonus tracks, “Summoned to Suffer” 2000 Demo and a live in-studio performance on WNYU’s (89.1 FM) widely recognized Hellhole show. The digital-only release includes 3 additional bonus tracks; live rehearsal tapes from the “Slaughtering” demos, featuring recently-deceased drummer, John Grden (RIP).
Slaughtering the Faithful is the first of three PESSIMIST reissues coming your way from Obscure Musick. Reissues of 1997’s Cult of the Initiated and 1999’s Blood For the Gods are scheduled for 2016 in March and September, respectively.
