Northlane Welcome Brendon Padjasek (Ex-Structures) To The Band As Their New Bassist

Northlane have welcomed former Structures frontman Brendon Padjasek to the group as their new bassist/backing vocalist. He will be taking over for Alex Milovic, who exited the band in September.

The band commented:

“Northlane would like to introduce our new member – Brendon Padjasek.

Brendon is one of our oldest and dearest friends we’ve made on the road, and he will be stepping into the role of bassist as well as providing additional vocals.

We met Brendon the very first time Northlane travelled to Canada in 2012. Since then we toured Canada, the USA and Australia together and forged some of our fondest memories from the road. He is a supremely talented musician and was the guitarist and then frontman for one of our favourite acts, STRUCTURES. His technical prowess extends to his work as a studio producer and session musician.

We can’t wait for you all to see Brendon perform with us on the Never Say Die! Tour, Good Things Festival and beyond!”

Bassist Tilen Hudrap To Exit Pestilence

Bassist Tilen Hudraphas has announced that he will be leaving Pestilence at the end of the year. Edward Negrea (Necrovile) has been recruited to take his place.

Hudrap said the following:

“Thanks to all our fans all over the world for mega support this year! It’s appreciated more than you can imagine! It was an insane year, a crazy ride indeed with my life-long brothers Patrick, Calin and Septimiu, filled with good vibes and energy.

I’m extremely proud to be a part of this historic legacy of death metal that is PESTILENCE and playing alongside my bro and one of the biggest innovators in extreme metal genres ever, Patrick Mameli! I will cherish these times forever!

Sometimes life gives us opportunities that we can’t say ‘no’ to and 2019 is going to be so busy for me in my other musical journeys that I had to make the most difficult decision ever: to leave PESTILENCE, because the band has a mega hectic schedule for 2019 planned as well. All the experiences we had together will stay with me forever and I wish my brothers in PESTILENCE absolute success in the future!”

Negrea also commented:

“I’m active in the music industry since 2009. My main instrument when I started, was the piano. During these piano years, I learned both the electric and bass guitar. Playing the piano helped me alot to get a deeper understanding about music and music theory in general.

Since 2014 I’ve been playing with several bands like Marchosias, PaddingMoth and the most important one: Necrovile.

I’ve been playing across Europe as a bass player alongside bands like Nile, Suffocation, Cancer, Napalm Death, Carcass, Kreator, Severe Torture, Wormed, Opeth, Annihilator and the list goes on and on. I am very excited to be given this opportunity to show my bass skills to the metal world, and I hope the fans will accept me as PESTILENCE’s new bassplayer”.
