Candlelight Records has announced the signing of Pestilence to a worldwide deal. The celebrated eastern Netherlands-based technical death metal band is currently preparing to enter the studio to begin work on its seventh album, titled Obsideo. The album wil be produced by the band's vocalist/guitarist Patrick Mameli and will feature ten new songs, including "Necromorph", "Saturation", "Soulrot", "Laniatus" and "Superconcious".

The bands comments: "Pestilence is very excited to announce that they have signed a recording deal with Candlelight Records. We feel that our new material is very special and innovative and that it needs the back up of a solid company like Candlelight to get it out there to the metal world."

Obsideo will feature band mastermind Mameli and longtime partner, guitarist Patrick Uterwijk, with new German bassist George Maier and Australian drummer Dave Haley.

Mameli adds: "Pestilence is chuffed to have Dave Haley in the lineup. Dave is one of the five best extreme drummers in the world, and his talent brings Pestilence to new levels that couldn't be reached otherwise. Georg Maier is a young and talented bass player that will turn some heads. Both guys are really down to earth and real easy going. Of course, Patrick Uterwijk is my most respectable and long-going friend and musician."
