Holland's FaceCulturerecently conducted an interview with guitarist/vocalist Patrick Mameli of Dutch death metallers PESTILENCE. You can now watch the chat in six parts below.
PESTILENCE's new album, "Doctrine", will be released late April through Mascot Records. The eleven-track CD was recorded and mixed at Woodshed Studio in southern Germany with engineer Victor Bullok (TRIPTYKON, DARK FORTRESS).
Regarding the direction of the band's new music, 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]."
