After announcing back in 2014 that they were on permanent hold, Dutch tech death metal legends Pestilence are back together again, and announced on their Facebook page that they will play some shows in 2017.
The band writes: “Just for the FANS! Due to numerous requests and wanting: The black Plague is back. Pestilence is going to hit the stage again with a new all star line up: Santiago Dobles – lead guitar, Tony Choy – bass and Septimiu Hărşan – drums. Be prepared for 2017! Pestilence and NeuromorpH are coming. Information and booking please contact our management: Ralph Roelvink.”
Patrick Mameli added: “Only for a few shows in Mexico was the first idea. Then it got a bit bigger. At first I was a bit hesitant, but my good friend Tony Choy, convinced me that there would be people wanting to hear the golden oldies in its original form. So there will be no new material written for Pestilence but rather playing great tunes from Malleus to Resurrection. No 8 string guitars. Just a nice trip down memory lane just for the fans. The line up is really great again. Choy, Dobles and Harsan. Awesome to have these guys perform the good old material. For new music I would like to refer to NeuromorpH. This will also happen in 2017. For people that are into tech.death.fusion, this could be interesting. But for now, hail Pestilence and Hail the Pestilence fans.”
