The deathlike silence that surrounded Pestilence for 15 years will be blown to pieces in early 2009 with the release of the brand new studio album Resurrection Macabre. It's a stunning musical statement that will bring back the band to the forefront of the international death metal community. The album is a display of the timeless power of brutal death metal brought with the modern day technique and skill of experienced musicians.
The brand new album was recorded in Denmark, with producer Jacob Hansen behind the desk The new incarnation of Pestilence consists of original band member Patrick Mameli, the American bass wizard Tony Choy (Atheist, Cynic, a.o.) and powerhouse drummer Peter Wildoer (Arch Enemy, Darkane, a.o.). Guitar player Patrick Uterwijk will join the band for the live shows.
Pestilence erupted in the mid 80's from the eastern part of Holland as one of the earliest European representatives of a brand new extreme kind of music: death metal. It's debut Malleus Maleficarum from 1988 had a huge impact on the then current metal scene. Pestilence spread like wildfire during the years that followed. The band managed to bland brute force, morbid imagery and musical perfection into music that was truly groundbreaking and highly influential. Consuming Impulse from 1989 and Testimony Of The Ancients from 1991 were internationally received masterpieces that helped to define an era and a musical genre.
Pestilence developed itself in a spectacular way in a few frantic years, despite relentless touring and promotional obligations. And... Patrick Mameli was never the one to play it safe. So in 1993 he started composing and recording what was to be the Spheres album. A growing fondness of fusion music found it's way to the new style that Pestilence presented. In recent years the albums had been heralded as a adventurous and daring piece of work that was ahead of it's time. Way back then it was misunderstood and fell on many deaf ears. It created tension in and around the band and they split up.
In 2008 the band reformed with Patrick Mameli, Tony Choy, Peter Wildoer (and Patrick Uterwijk).
The result of many months of hard work is aptly titled Resurrection Macabre. The new album has everything to offer that a fan of Pestilence - old and new - possibly could wish for. And more. It has the dark atmosphere, brutal vocals, sheer power and technical skills - always the trademarks of Pestilence.
The only link to the glory days of the past are the three old Pestilence songs that get a new life on the new album: Chemo Therapy, Dehydrated and Out Of the Body, all coming from the first two Pestilence albums. ,
