In my opinion, this is probably one of the top releases to come out in the past decade. Pessimist play fast death metal ridden with excellent riffs and soloing. I'd say they remind me of a more Death Metal influenced Angelcorpse, but again the soloing is much better. Pick this up if you have the chance. My favorite songs would have to be Stripped Of Immortality, Metempsychosis, and the title track.
