On their 1997 debut album ‘Cult of the Initiated’, PESSIMIST unleashed their brutality onto the international metal scene for the first time.
The nascent band’s effort displayed all the traits – the violent riffing, guttural vocal attack, and relentless pacing – that would become their calling card for the coming decades.
