Resurrection Macabre is the fifth studio album by Dutch technical death metal band Pestilence, which was released on March 16, 2009.[5] It is the band's first album of original material in 16 years, since 1993's Spheres. Re-recordings of "Chemo Therapy" from Malleus Maleficarum, "Out of the Body" from Consuming Impulse, and "Lost Souls" from Testimony of the Ancients appear as bonus tracks on the album.


Pestilence were broken up between 1994 and early 2008. In January 2008, frontman Patrick Mameli revealed to that the band was resurrected after "people/fans keep asking me for this. The time is right now and Mascot is giving me the opportunity to do so. As you know, I have always been the driving force behind Pestilence, writing all the music and so forth, so that I can state: I will bring back Pestilence to life. More tech and way more brutal than ever before."[6]

In October 2008, Mameli revealed to UK's Terrorizer magazine that Pestilence would enter a studio in Denmark on October 17 with both the producers. By October 31, Mameli states, "everything will have to be recorded and mixed. Then the album will come out somewhere around March 2009. And by April, we'll do a three-week European tour before doing as much shows as possible on the summer festivals circuit."[7]
