PESTILENCE Kicks Off South American Tour In Venezuela; Performance, Interview Footage Available

Resurrected late '80s/early '90s death metallers PESTILENCE kicked off their South American tour this past Wednesday, February 9 at Moulin Rouge in Caracas, Venezuela.

Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be viewed below. Also available is video footage of the interview PESTILENCE gave to the La Mega 107.3 FM radio station the day before the Caracas concert.

PESTILENCE recently completed work on a new studio album entitled "Doctrine". The CD will be released later in the year through Mascot Records.

Regarding the direction of the band's new music, PESTILENCE guitarist/vocalist Patrick 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 last year 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.

PESTILENCE 2011 is:

Patrick Mameli - Guitar/Vocals
Jeroen Paul Thesseling - Bass
Patrick Uterwijk - Guitar
Yuma Van Eekelen - Drums

PESTILENCE's latest album, "Resurrection Macabre", was released on March 13, 2009 in Europe (April 14, 2009 in the U.S.) via Holland's Mascot Records.
