PESTIFER release “Defeat Of The Nemesis”


Belgium’s PESTIFER have officially released new EP “Defeat Of The Nemesis“, a sophisticated, unorthodox and technically brilliant storm of progressive Death Metal. The five compositions deliver tricky rhythms, sharply aggressive riffs, thunderous vocals and melodically impulsive leads – an EP to challenge the borders of the genre!

Listen to “Defeat Of The Nemesis” here:

Vocalist Jérôme describes PESTIFER‘s future plans:

The next step for us is to compose a full-length album and to promote “Defeat Of The Nemesis” live. We can’t wait for people to catch the EP’s energy on stage, but we are very excited to write a coherent and conceptual new long player as well. I am almost sure people who like our EP will also love our future music! The composition dynamic is well established, with the same guys and the same passion for dark chords, weird moods, aggressive energy and inspiration that comes from outer space. Just expect that we’ll push all this even further!

Defeat Of The Nemesis” continues to receive high praise from the worldwide Metal press:

Technical Death Metal band PESTIFER craft music which is as fun as it is dazzling.” (Decibel)

If PESTIFER continue to show off their many strengths in a future full-length as well, then they will head with Warp drive into the next higher league of Death Metal!” (

PESTIFER is a band that we, especially in Flanders, don’t appreciate enough yet. Make sure that changes and check out the band as well as “Defeat Of The Nemesis“!” (

We are faced with very complex scores, between odd tempos and jazz digressions. Combined with extreme vocals, tight rhythms and stone-crushing riffs, all cloaked in a palpable 70s sci-fi atmosphere, everything becomes extremely captivating. A must for fans of the genre!” (

Defeat Of The Nemesis” is released via Debemur Morti Productions as CD, vinyl (with digital print on B side) and digitally. Orders are possible via the label’s EUUS and Bandcamp shops.


PESTIFER is a metal band that has been haunting Belgium since 2004. Composed of four humanoids, the group plays an original music mixing aggressivity, melodies and personality with emphasis on the songs’ structure, elaborate riffing and the general atmosphere.

The project was fantasized by young hairy twins, fanatics of the 90’s Death Metal scene. With a first EP in 2006, PESTIFER aligns concerts on a local scale. In 2010, the band takes a new dimension releasing its first album, “Age Of Disgrace“. Two European tours in support of KATAKLYSM and KRISIUN follow and they sign with Ultimhate Records.

After a new 13-date European tour with NILEPESTIFER release a new album on Greatdane Records in 2014. “Reaching The Void” confirms the band’s musical direction and brings a new trend with more “sci-fi” themes.

The following years, the band undergoes some line-up changes with the arrival of a new guitar player. In mid-2019, the band records a concept album, marking a new milestone for PESTIFER. The album, the result of several years of writing, is released in March 2020 on Xenokorp Records, a few days before the worldwide lockdown. During that period, PESTIFER sign a publishing contract with Les Editions Hurlantes (GOJIRAIMMORTALMARDUK…).

In 2021, the band releases a video documentary. The film is directed by Giov‘ and focuses on the band’s life during covid. 2022 sees PESTIFER sign a contract with Debemur Morti Productions. Their forthcoming EP, “Defeat Of The Nemesis“, is released on April 21st.
