This is cool.

So, Guitarist Kelly McLauchlin of Possessed and Diabolic has joined forces with bassist Kelly Conlon (Death) and drummer Paul Collier (of Angelcorpse) to reform Pessimist.

“We are excited to have Kelly [Conlon] onboard with us once again,” says founding member McLauchlin.

“Kelly most recently toured with us during our East Coast U.S. dates in 2008, including New England Deathfest, Hostile City Deathfest, and European tour in 2009.

“I toured with Paul while playing in Angelcorpse Lightning Death Descends West Coast tour in 2008. Paul is a world-class drummer and we are excited to incorporate his playing style into the Pessimist sound.

“Also returning to the Pessimist lineup is guitarist William Hayden, from our Slaughtering The Faithful CD — and we will be joined by a new vocalist, Ivan ‘The Evil One’ of Black Mass.”

The band is currently recording demo tracks for a new full-length album, tentatively titled Keys To The Underworld.
