Pestilence releases fantastic artwork for “Hadeon” and first single!

Posted on Dec 19, 2017 in News

Just before the darkest day of the year Hammerheart Records is extremely proud to show the world the artwork for “Hadeon” by Dutch Death Metal legends Pestilence. It is created by Michal “Xaay” Loranc (Behemoth, Nile, Evocation, Vader, Necrophagist), a very talented Polish graphic designer whom perfectly turned Patrick Mameli’s visions and concept into art!

Together with the announcement of the “Hadeon” cover artwork Hammerheart Records releases the first single-track from “Hadeon”, the song “Multi Dimensional”. “Multi Dimensional” is a great appetizer for the album and shows all of Pestilence’s trademarks in one killer song.

The perfect mixture of old school and some innovative elements (as one would expect from Pestilence), a song that indeed could have been on a logical follow-up album to the legendary “Testimony of the Ancients” album. Enjoy!

Pestilence welcomes Calin Paraschiv!

Posted on Nov 14, 2017 in News

Due to personal circumstances guitarist extraordinaire Santiago Dobles (Aghora, Cynic) will not participate in future live-performances with/for Pestilence. Santiago’s latest contribution are some excellent solo’s on Pestilence’s upcoming album “Hadeon” (coming in March 2018). For now this ends Santiago’s involvement in Pestilence, but we would not be surprised if he will be a guest on any future recording.

So Pestilence welcomes Calin Paraschiv as their new guitarist. Calin hails from Rumania, and plays in another project (Necrovile) with current Pestilence drummer Septimiu Harsan. He is not a starting musician, but someone who knows the drill for the last 25 years.

Patrick Mameli on Calin: “Calin is the right man for the job, a skilled and professional guitarist ready to tour across the world. Rehearsing together with Septimiu is a big plus, so the choice was an easy one to make”.

This means Pestilence is more than ever ready to tour. 2018 will start off in the end of January with a 30 days+ old school set, under the appropriate name “Fight The Plague” tour.
