Pestilence - Drummer Quits, To Start Recording New Album 'Exitivm'

Pestilence, who're just about to start recording drums for their upcoming album, have revealed that their current drummer Septimiu Hărşan was forced to quit the band due to Covid-19 pandemic issue. Michiel van der Plicht (God Dethroned) will step in for the recording sessions. Pestilence's next studio album will be entitled Exitivm.

"Right before the drum recordings for the new Pestilence album, we got news from Septimiu Harsan, that he will not be a part of this historic event. Recent developments regarding the covid-19 pandemic, the financial aspect and travel situation made him decide to stop pursuing a career in music on a professional level. We, Rutger van Noordenburg, Joost van der Graaf and Mr. Pestilence himself, of corpse, wish him health and all the best for the future".

"BUT THIS DOES NOT STOP US from delivering you the virus, that is the black plague, to your ears. We contacted Hollands finest, Michiel van der Plicht, to record Exitivm for us. After hearing the raw demo's he was very excited to say the least. Michiel, who is also the live drummer for Carach Agren, is currently negotiating with them, about the possibilities of playing live for Pestllence as well. But for now we will focus on recording the album with him and see what happens in the future".

Michiel van der Plicht had this to say about recording drums on Exitivm: "I'm very proud to be playing on the upcoming[band] Pestilence[/band] album. Be prepared!"
