After announcing Tim Yeung as the new drummer of the band a few months ago, Dutch death metal outfit Pestilence has now issued the following update: "We are very pleased that we can officially announce that David Haley (Psycroptic) will replace Tim Yeung for the upcoming Pestilence album and upcoming shows. Bassist Stefan Fimmers (ex-Necrophagist) already joined Pestilence for the new album Obsideo and live performances."

"Although Tim 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."

Patrick Mameli commented: "But we (Uterwijk, Fimmers and Mameli) 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."

David Haley commented on joining Pestilence: "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."

For the new album Obsideo, eight of the ten tunes are written, and Pestilence hopes to start recording it at end of 2012. Some new song titles are: "Necromorph", "Saturation", "Soulrot", "Laniatus" and "Superconcious". The overall theme will be the journey of the human soul.

Pestilence 2012 is:

Patrick Mameli - Lead guitar/Vocals
Patrick Uterwijk - Lead guitar
Stefan Fimmers - Bass
David Haley - Drums

Unless the next album shows a marked improvement in the vocal department, it doesn't matter who's playing what instrument.

The problem is that new Pestilence is straight forward death metal. It sounds boring, cliche, and uninspired, and theres no Van Drunen Its really not that bad though, its just boring as fuck to me. C-187 was more creative.

Van Drunen was nly there on their first two and their best by far were still the two after

Sort of agreed but I'm not going to compare the two because TOTA was a different sounding album and Spheres was so much different than Consuming. Consuming is my favorite to listen to I think but I appreciate TOTA and Spheres more from a musical standpoint. But my point in the other post is that their newer stuff is very straightforward death metal and when you get a bunch of middle aged men writing death metal it tends to sound uninspired. It isn't just the lack of Van Drunen that makes new Pestilence boring imo.
