After the release of Death From Above in 2013, German thrashers Pessimist became somewhat quiet. The silence ends now, as the band has released a new single entitled Landsknecht to promote a new album scheduled to be released this summer!
Pessimist was founded in a pub in Weil Am Rhein by Michael TZ Schweitzer, Patrick Peppi Pfefferle and Robin Maurer in the summer of 2006. Shortly afterwards Severin Sevi Wössner and Raphael Zagge Gamboni join the band and the band moves into their first rehearsal room in Weil Am Rhein. The first demo Nuclear Holocaust is recorded in 2007 at the home of guitarist Pfefferle. In September 2008, the band organizes a bus for 45 fans, for a show at the Thrash ’em Down Festival in Bietigheim-Bissingen (near Stuttgart).
