‘Supergroup’ was a term introduced in the late 60’s to describe groups such as Cream and Blind Faith which were composed of members who already achieved fame in other great bands. Now, a few decades down the dusty road, this qualification is more than fitting for a brand new band: C-187! C-187 = PESTILENCE + CYNIC + DEATH + B-THONG C-187 is an international project initiated by Patrick Mameli. From 1985 till 1994 he was the creative genius, guitar player and sometime singer of the Dutch death metal band Pestilence. Over the course of six years Pestilence released four groundbreaking albums. His increasingly experimental and challenging approach to heavy music won Patrick Mameli and his colleagues worldwide admiration, although more than once the band proved to be ahead of it’s time. Not long after the release in 1993 of the underrated masterpiece Spheres Pestilence fell apart and Patrick Mameli suddenly disappeared from the scene. It took him close to 13 years to build up a healthy appetite to give it another go. This time he simply wanted to work with the best musicians available. And he got them. The rhythm section is probably the best in the world of current heavy music: Sean Reinert is a powerful and creative drummer who left it’s mark on albums by the legendary metal bands Death (Human) and Cynic (Focus). Fellow American Tony Choy is the skilled and all-round bass player who was also a member of Cynic. He worked with Pestilence on the album Testimony Of The Ancients and later on joined Atheist. His involvement with the Latin band Area 305 earned him a Latin Grammy Award nomination in 2004. Patrick Mameli found the perfect singer in Gothenburg, Sweden. Tony Jelencovich has lent his powerhouse voice and impressive stage presence to bands as B-Thong, Transport League, Mnemic and M.A.N. It’s this mixture of nationalities, talent, influences and creativity that found it’s way to C-187’s Collision; a truly unique debut album that will be unleashed to the world in August this year.No compromise. No hassle. Just great innovative metal music.
