“PEST compose an extremely graphic music, if that could make sense to you. In fact, close your eyes while listening to this and you could see ruined churches under the moonlight and sacrificed virgins upon unholy altars, in the way the old Hammer films depicted that..”

“The main force of PEST lies in the fact that their Black Metal is no estranged from traditional Heavy Metal”
– Voices from the Darkside (“Hail the Black Metal Wolves of Belial” review)


Basically, PEST is no more and hasn´t been for a long time.


Still Lauri Nazgul Werwolf (SATANIC WARMASTER a.o.) put a (the?) band together and presented a really cool gig. Loved it even though I only heard a couple of songs before seeing them live. Very relaxed frontman who seemed to be in a good mood. Stayed around and watched most of it 👍

Not exactly sure about the band on stage but the last known official line up: Skratt Bass, Keyboards Nigrantium Drums Iskariot Guitars Nazgul Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keyboards
