PESTILENCE Recruits Bassist TILEN HUDRAP

Veteran Dutch extreme metallers PESTILENCE have recruited Slovenian bassist Tilen Hudrap (VICIOUS RUMORS, PARADOX, THRAW) for their upcoming studio album, "Hadeon", and accompanying world tour.

An audio clip of Hudrap playing the new PESTILENCE song "Discarnate Entity" — which will appear on "Hadeon" — can be streamed below.

PESTILENCE has just inked a deal with Hammerheart Records. The band will enter the studio in June to begin recording "Hadeon" for a late 2017 release.

Hammerheart has also come to an agreement on the PESTILENCE back catalog, but plans are still in the works to get all details finalized concerning these essential recordings ("Malleus Maleficarum", "Consuming Impulse", "Testimony Of The Ancients" and "Spheres"). It is hoped that those records will be reissued as deluxe 2-CDs and LPs later this year 2017.

Joining Hudrap and vocalist/guitarist Patrick Mameli in the band's current lineup are Santiago Dobles (AGHORA) on lead guitar and Septimiu Hărşan (DISAVOWED) on drums.

In July 2014, Mameli announced that PESTILENCE was "on a permanent hold" while he concentrated fully on his new NEUROMORPH project, which he said would be "more brutal, more crazy, more tech, more futuristic and more death" than his longtime outfit.

PESTILENCE's seventh album, "Obsideo", was released in November 2013 via Candlelight Records. The CD was produced by Mameli and featured ten new songs. According to Mameli, the album's overall lyrical theme was "the journey of the human soul."
