Obscura/Pestilence bassist to emigrate to Italy

Official press release: 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 lesions 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 lesions and working on album production. I feel very positive about this move and look forward to other future collaborations on Italian ground."
