After signing to Roadrunner Records, Pestilence released their debut album titled Malleus Maleficarum in 1988, further refining their approach to thrash metal.

Shortly thereafter, guitarist Randy Meinhard left the band to pursue other musical goals in a new band named SacrosanctThey released four albums before disbanding in order to pursue other musical directions in 1994. « hide
