C-187 recently entered Spacelab Studios in Oedt/Moers (near Düsseldorf),Germany to begin recording its debut album for an August release via Holland's Mascot Records. "Sean Reinert has just finished recording his parts (and he's back in L.A.),the same Tony Choy," reads a posting on the PESTILENCE Land of Tears web site. "Now is time for guitars and vocals. Album should be a really heavy fusion thing, not as much rap-orientated as it was planned." The band will tentatively hit the road in the fall. More information will be made available soon.

Mameli recently commented: "After the PESTILENCE adventure way back in the Eighties and Nineties, it became clear to me that I had to change direction. Musically that is! Being a huge Allan Holdsworth fan also had a downside. Trying to combine metal and jazz turned out to be a disappointment both for fans and the band. Also realizing that it would be nearly impossible to reach such levels of skills making metalmusic made me quit playing guitar for more than seven years. Now, lightyears later, I'm back with a new found love for the guitar instrument and would love to share these musical ideas with music lovers all over the world. Recently I started my new project C-187. I will not discuss the style because words are not enough to describe it. Let your ears and brain be the judge. Certainly you will hear Holdsworth in there somewhere ('coz he is the man!!!) but also some heavy guitar riffing and (gangstametal) fusion hiphop beats, making this style fresh and new."
