PATHOLOGY is epitomized as the ultimate death metal assault to the ears. Since their formation in 2006, the San Diego-based band has managed to release a new album almost every single year since their inception, and have sold over 100,000 albums in the underground scene. The band’s hunger to churn out bludgeoning metal coupled with meaningful themes instantly separates them from the rest.
It comes as no surprise that PATHOLOGY have created some of the most vivid and grotesque death metal in the current genre. The founding members of PATHOLOGY have roots in other extreme death metal bands, such as drummer Dave Astor as the founding member of both the grind-spazz project THE LOCUST and militant death squad CATTLE DECAPITATION.
PATHOLOGY’s current formation stands at its strongest with Dave Astor on drums, Daniel Richardson on guitar, bass player Richard Jackson and vocalist Clayton Meade to diversify the perfect lineup. Revealing an intense mixture of brutal riffs, crushing drums and imagery so blood-soaked, sickeningly twisted and filled with death that it’s impossible to look away.
Brimming with heavy grooves, and a tight, relenting style, PATHOLOGY delivers savory slabs of brutality. Make no mistake; PATHOLOGY is not in any way suitable for a weak stomach – the onslaught of rumbling grooves coupled with guttural growls leaves fans old and new assured of the presence of PATHOLOGY’s brutality.
PATHOLOGY has toured North America, Mexico, Canada and Europe with death metal legends like OBITUARY, DEICIDE, NILE, VADER, IMMOLATION and GRAVE. They have a devoted fan base as seen by their 225,000 plus followers across their social media websites and the credibility of a hard-working, down-to-earth band who have paid their dues and risen from the underground and continue to invade and crossover to new and younger fans.
The group refuses to tone down its dangerously high level of hostility, wreaking havoc on anything that dares to step into its destructive path. Breaking the mold to create and maintain a unique, raw sound has skyrocketed PATHOLOGY to the top of the death metal elite. Championing their reigning status to stand strong outside of the mainstream solidifies PATHOLOGY as the most forward-thinking merchants of mayhem around.
