PESTILENCE And SADIST Members Join Forces In New Recording Project NUFUTIC

Bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling (PESTILENCE, ex-OBSCURA) has joined forces with producer and guitar/keyboard virtuoso Tommy Talamanca (SADIST) in a new recording project dubbed NUFUTIC.

“We are very stoked about this new collaboration,” says Talamanca. “Our working field will be fusion-influenced metal, a direction that allows us to combine progressive elements of our musical backgrounds.”

The Dutch/Italian project is holding video auditions for drummers who play jazz-fusion and metal. Interested parties should send their background info and performance web links via email to: contact [at] jeroenthesseling [dot] com.

Tommy has played with the Italian prog/death band SADIST since 1991 and appeared on their albums “Above The Light” (1993), “Tribe” (1996), “Crust” (1997), “Lego” (2000), “Sadist” (2007) and “Season In Silence” (2010). Last year, Tommy contributed a guitar solo to the track “Euclidean Elements” on OBSCURA‘s latest album, “Omnivium”.

Thesseling collaborated with OBSCURA from 2008 to 2011 and recorded the band’s full-length albums “Cosmogenesis” (2009) and “Omnivium” (2011). In 2009 Jeroen rejoined Dutch death metallers PESTILENCE after a 15-year hiatus. He recorded PESTILENCE‘s fourth and sixth studio albums, “Spheres” (1993) and “Doctrine” (2011).
