Vocalist/guitarist Patrick Mameli of veteran Dutch extreme metallers PESTILENCE has changed the name of his new project from NECROMORPH to NEUROMORPH. He explains: "I was contacted by the guitar player Ulf from the German death/grind band NECROMORPH. He asked me if I would reconsider renaming my new project.

"Of course, I was not aware of this band's existence, otherwise I would have never named my project NECROMORPH.

"So peeps, not to go to far away from the word 'morph,' which has a lot of meaning to me, i will call it NEUROMORPH, which is even more powerful and covers the style It fits the new style even better! I'm happy with this change."

Mameli recently announced that PESTILENCE was "no longer active in recording new material" and was "on a permanent hold" so that he could concentrate fully on NEUROMORPH.

NEUROMORPH is described as a "death-jazz-fusion project featuring all-new and original members, including possibly Georg Majer on bass, in which Mameli will put down the eight-string and get reacquainted with his six-string Steinberger once more.

Not dissimilar to the jazz fusion elements found on "Spheres", but combined with the modern PESTILENCE riffing attack, NEUROMORPH is set to blast past all expectations and shatter the eardrums of those thinking just another straightforward "jazzy progressive metal" album is on its way. "It's similar to jazz fusion," said Mameli, "but these riffs and songs will be more brutal than PESTILENCE… but way different than PESTILENCE!"

PESTILENCE's seventh album, "Obsideo", was released on November 12, 2013 via Candlelight Records.
