Pestilence, hailing from Netherlands and fronted by vocalist and guitarist Patrick Mameli, were early Death followers on Malleus Maleficarum (Roadrunner, 1988), but death-metal truly conquered continental Europe via their second album, Consuming Impulse (1989), the natural link between Death and Entombed, with Patrick Uterwijk joining Mameli on guitar. The more technically refined Testimony Of The Ancients (1991) was even more imposing, while Spheres (Roadrunner, 1993), that added fretless bassist Jeroen Paul Thesseling, relied on slower, jazzier songs and a whirlwind of guitar effects. Thesseling went on to play in Obscura.

A new lineup of Pestilence, always led by Mameli, reformed for Resurrection Macabre (2009), their first album in 16 years. Thesseling and Uterwijk rejoined Pestilence for their sixth album Doctrine (2011). Patrick Mameli kept changing the lineup of Pestilence for the albums Obsideo (2013), that still had Patrick Uterwijk on guitars, and Hadeon (2018), that also lost Uterwijk.
