OBSCURA/PESTILENCE Bassist To Emigrate To Italy

Dutch bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling (OBSCURA, PESTILENCE), known for his signature six-string fretless playing in progressive death metal, will emigrate from Holland to Italy (Rossiglione) due to "significant changes" in his private life. Thesseling, who currently resides in Amsterdam, emphasizes that his move will not affect his work with either OBSCURA or PESTILENCE and he's looking forward to new opportunities while in Italy, such as offering lessons at Nadir Music Studios.

Thesseling comments: "Besides touring and recording with both bands, I'm starting a collaboration with Nadir Music Studios (the SADIST headquarters) in Genoa, Italy, offering bass lessons and working on album productions. I feel very positive about this move and look forward to other future collaborations on Italian ground."

For further information on bass lessons, interested parties can contact Jeroen via his official web site, www.jeroenthesseling.com.

OBSCURA recently entered Woodshed Studio in southern Germany with engineer V. Santura (TRIPTYKON, DARK FORTRESS) to begin recording its new album for an early 2011 release via Relapse Records.
