In other news, Dutch bass player magazine De Bassist conducted a video interview with Jeroen Paul Thesseling (Pestilence, Obscura). The 7-minute segment was filmed on December 17th, 2010 at De Effenaar during Holland's Eindhoven Metal Meeting. Jeroen talks about his background as a fretless bass player, the switch to a new tuning, and much more. You can now watch the chat below.

Thesseling is one of the very few bassists in the metal scene that plays fretless basses. He recently recorded the albums Doctrine (Pestilence), Omnivium (Obscura) and Quarterpast (MaYaN), all to be released within the next few months.

Thesseling is the man! I don't know if he demands his bass to be made more audible in the mix or if the band as a whole wants it that way because he's so good, but I'm not complaining.

If he recorded an instrumental solo album with just his bass, I'd buy it.

PS - love that he posted this news and has an account here.

Jeroen is one of the coolest musicians I have ever met.

This is cool news, and the interview was interesting to listen to. It's also admirable that Mr. Thesseling has his own account here and submits news articles, as was pointed out earlier.
