"Although Tim [Yeung] was really excited to join Pestilence, it was because of his conflicting tour schedules with Morbid Angel (and other projects), that made it nearly impossible for Tim to tour with Pestilence. But we weren't really too disappointed by this unfortunate development because of our talks with David soon after. The new material will fit David perfectly. He is such an amazing drummer and a really cool guy as well!!! We all welcome him into the Pestilence camp."
Adds new sticksman David Haley:
"I'm very excited to be performing the drums on the new Pestilence album...and quite nervous about it, too! Pestilence have been such an influential band within the metal community throughout their whole career, so it's quite an honor to be asked to perform for the upcoming album. The material I've heard thus far is amazing — and I am really looking forward to start the recording process."
Pestilence has written eight songs so far for new album 'Obsideo' and hopes to begin recording the cd before the end of the year for an early 2013 release. According to Mameli, the cd's overall lyrical theme will be "the journey of the human soul".
Pestilence's latest release, 'Doctrine', features Yuma van Eekelen on drums. The album was released in July 2011 via Mascot Records. The eleven-track cd was recorded and mixed at Woodshed Studio in southern Germany with engineer Victor Bullok (a.k.a. V. Santura; Triptykon, Dark Fortress).
