Sick Drummer Magazine has uploaded drum-cam footage of Yuma Van Eekelen of resurrected late '80s/early '90s death metallers PESTILENCE performing the song "Resurrection Macabre" on June 8, 2010 in San Francisco, California. Watch the clip below.
PESTILENCE guitarist/vocalist Patrick Mameli recently revealed to Mexico's Search & Destroy web site that the band's forthcoming studio album will be titled "Doctrine" and it will be produced by V. Santura (DARK FORTRESS, TRIPTYKON). A tentative February 2011 release is expected.
Regarding the direction of the band's new music, Mameli previously stated, "The new material will sound, again, way different from the previous albums, and is going to top all previous PESTILENCE material, stated by insiders already.
"The new songs have the rawness of [1989's] 'Consuming Impulse', the theatrical [quality] of 1991's 'Testimony Of The Ancients' and the brutallity of [2009's comeback effort] 'Resurrection Macabre'. But this time we will try to top all our material by using the RG2228-GK [Ibanez guitar]."
PESTILENCE just completed its first U.S. tour in over 16 years. The 17-date trek kicked off in Baltimore as part of the Maryland Deathfest on May 30 and closed at the Gramercy Theater in New York City on June 17. Support on the tour came from WARBRINGER, VITAL REMAINS, ENFOLD DARKNESS and SACRIFICIAL SLAUGHTER.
