Pestilence set to release new album

Official press release: Legendary progressive tech metallers, Pestilence, will release their sixth full-length to North American masses on July 19, 2011 via Mascot Records. Titled Doctrine, the 11-track long player was recorded and mixed at Woodshed Studio in southern Germany with vocalist/guitarist by Patrick Mameli, Yuma van Eekelen and Victor Bullok (Triptykon, Dark Fortress) and offers up a torrent of thought-provoking lyrics, dissonant chords, complex rhythm patterns and low-tuned riffs. While not a "concept album" in the traditional sense, the record is largely based around the various ways humanity often suffers under the burden of religion and politics. "I always put a lot of effort in the lyrics," comments vocalist/guitarist Patrick Mameli. "I never felt the need to write ‘gore’ lyrics, like so many other bands do. I am aware of what is going on in the world and I have the feeling that I have something to say about it." Check out Doctrine's Marko Saarelainen cover art here. Doctrine Track Listing: 01. The Predication 02. Amgod 03. Doctrine 04. Salvation 05. Dissolve 06. Absolution 07. Sinister 08. Divinity 09. Deception 10. Malignant 11. Confusion
