Mike leaving Persistense

Unfortunately we have to announce guitarist Mike Wildeman will be leaving Persistense later this year. Mike is not able to combine his study with the band activities anymore. We didn't find a decent replacement yet so if you want to participate in auditions send your recordings or youtube video to info@persistense.nl and we'll get back to you as soon as possible. 

Thanks !!

New line-up Persistense!

PERSISTENSE is proud to present a new line-up:

Besides founding member Stefan van Vugt the band also added second vocalist Vital Welten (ex-GODEN,ex-SACRAMENTAL SACHEM and ex-FUELBLOODED, THE NOBLEST BLOOD) to their ranks.
Guitarists whre found in Mike Wildeman ( THE NOBLEST BLOOD) and Zdena Pastorek ( ex-LIVE EVIL, ex- MEMORIA, THE NOBLEST BLOOD).
Erik Drost ( HENGST, THE NOBLEST BLOOD) and Patrick Hermans (ex-EMBRACE THE CHAOS, THE NOBLEST BLOOD) will take care of the bass and drums.

Stefan van Vugt played with Persistense more than 150 shows, the icing on the cake was to open for TESTAMENT.
Persistense also played with Detente, Anger As Art and Bitch on their Benelux tours.

Persistense will keep on playing death / thrash metal and we hope to see you guys again when new tourdates will be announced!
