Reactivated and brutally rejuvenated Dutch progressive death metallers Pestilence will release their studio return, “Hadeon“, via Hammerheart Records on March 9th. Expectations are running high since the announcement of the classic band’s return and the recent sharing of the new song, “Multi Dimensional” (streaming below).
That excitement will now be doubled-down upon undoubtedly as Pestilence has teamed with Decibel Magazine for the release of another new, but non-album track, “Hypnotic Terror“. The track arrives via the mag’s Flexi-Series and was recorded during the recent Hadeon recording sessions.
An extremely limited number of issues containing this installment of the Decibel Flexi Series are available here.
The recording of Hadeon saw the band’s main man, Patrick Mameli (Lead guitar/Vocals) joined by guitarist Santiago Dobles (Cynic, Aghora), Tilen Hudrap (Bass) and Septimiu Hărşan (Drums). Dobles has since exited the band and his replacement for live performances announced, guitarist Calin Paraschiv.
The album’s stunning artwork was created by Michal “Xaay” Loranc (Behemoth, Nile, Evocation, Vader, Necrophagist), a very talented Polish graphic designer whom turned Patrick Mameli’s visions and concept into this magnificent art below.
“Hadeon” is available for pre-order here.
