Posted by on Feb 4, 2011 in News

Dutch bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling (PESTILENCE, OBSCURA) will promote the recently completed Pestilence album "Doctrine" with a new custom made bass guitar. This week the German bass manufacturer Warwick confirmed to support Thesseling by building a seven-string fretless version of their classic Thumb NT series that he plays exclusively since 17 years. "In the studio we decided to record the new "Doctrine" material with a low F-sharp tuning on bass, but then I still needed to find a way to work it out for live performances. I’m proud of the long-term collaboration with Warwick; this masterpiece will make it sound extremely massive.", according to Jeroen.

De Bassist recently conducted an interview with Thesseling. You can now watch the chat below:
