PESTILENCE: Video Footage Of New Drummer's Audition Available

Video footage of new PESTILENCE drummer Yuma Van Eekelen's audition that landed him a spot in the band can be viewed below.

According to PESTILENCE guitarist/vocalist Patrick Mameli, Yuma Van Eekelen is "really special and driven. His blasts and double-bass drum parts are amazing and furious!! His way of thinking about Peter (Wildoer's) parts are phenomenal and give just the right vibe to the already recorded songs for the 'Resurrection Macabre' album."

PESTILENCE's latest album, "Resurrection Macabre", was released on March 13 in Europe (April 14 in the U.S.) via Holland's Mascot Records. The band recorded a total of 14 songs during the session at Hansen Studios in Ribe, Denmark — 11 new tracks and three classic PESTILENCE cuts (as chosen by the fans) that were included on the limited-edition first pressing: "Out Of The Body", "Chemo Therapy" and "Lost Souls". Patrick previously described the material as a modern fusion of "Testimony of the Ancients" (1991) and "Spheres" (1993), but even more technical and brutal.

Joining Mameli in PESTILENCE's most recent recording/touring lineup were Tony Choy (ATHEIST, CYNIC) on bass, Peter Wildoer (DARKANE, NON-HUMAN LEVEL) on drums and Patrick Uterwijk on guitar.
