3.0 goodK. McNichols | March 17th 08

Ah, Spheres. The most despised Pestilence album, and it's really no wonder the band broke up after releasing such a lackluster effort as this (at least compared to previous masterworks of death metal which bear the Pestilence namesake). The keyboard interludes from Testimony of the Ancients got fruitier, and the band took on a more "progressive" direction as their peers Atheist and Cynic had found success in. Unfortunately it's almost as if the band didn't do their research and the music leaves much to be desired. The production doesn't help either; the guitar tone is one of the weakest I've heard from a death metal band of Pestilence's stature. Basically this album is only good for the (morbidly) curious. There are a few headbanging moments, and quite a few good riffs but as a whole, Spheres just has nothing on its predecessors. Give it a few spins if you really must know how this sounds (as I did) but it's just not worth your money.

While I personally enjoy atmospheric touches in some metal albums, i'm afraid that the waning production value for the instruments as well as the vocals send what could've been a solid addition to a fantastic death metal discog right to the bottom. Despite some good moments, i'm afraid the presence of Malleus and Consuming Impulse will eventually make this album seamingly non-existent.

I don't really care much about rates! but this one is absolutely, criminally underrated!!!

This is a solid, if unspectacular album. None of the songs are really all that strong, but its interesting to listen to, as the album has a unique style.
