"Sinister", a brand new song from the Dutch death metallers Pestilence, can be streamed here.

The track comes off the band's new album, "Doctrine", which will be released late April through Mascot Records. The eleven-track CD was recorded and mixed at Woodshed Studio in southern Germany with engineer Victor Bullok (Triptykon, Dark Fortress).

Regarding the direction of the band's new music, Pestilence guitarist/vocalist Patrick Mameli previously stated, "The new material will sound, again, way different from the previous albums, and is going to top all previous Pestilence material, stated by insiders already.

"The new songs have the rawness of [1989's] 'Consuming Impulse', the theatrical [quality] of 1991's 'Testimony Of The Ancients' and the brutallity of [2009's comeback effort] 'Resurrection Macabre'. But this time we will try to top all our material by using the RG2228-GK [Ibanez guitar]."

"Doctrine" track listing:

01. The Predication (intro) 02. Amgod 03. Doctrine 04. Salvation 05. Dissolve 06. Absolution 07. Sinister 08. Divinity 09. Deception 10. Malignant 11. Confusion

The "Doctrine" artwork, which was designed by Marko Saarelainen, can be viewed here.

    Great... can't wait to hear this... what a great comeback this band made with Resurrection Macabre, their first album after a 15 year absence, and I hope Doctrine will be as good as that album.
    Didn't like RM vocals too much... glad they came back to the thrasy vocals era! The song is killer... Hate how they always seem to forget about their best album, Spheres
