Starting out as a primitive death/thrash band like early Death, or demo-era Cynic, Pestilence progressed over the span of four records into a technical death band, in a similar style to Cynic's focus. Although not as technical as latter day Death or Cynic, Pestilence were an important part in the Technical Death scene, and many other bands cite them as a huge influence in their own sounds.
Mameli reformed Pestilence in 2008 with most of the classic lineup, joined by drummer Peter Wildoer.
