San Diego's PATHOLOGY will enter Lambesis Studios in the band's hometown this summer with producer Daniel Castleman (IMPENDING DOOM, AS I LAY DYING, WINDS OF PLAGUE) to begin recording its new album for a fall release.
Commented drummer Dave Astor: "The writing process for the new album is going very smooth. The new songs are some of the heaviest stuff we have ever written
"We are all thrilled to be working with producer Daniel Castleman at Lambesis Studios here in San Diego. I am a fan of all his recordings and feel his skills will bring our sound to where it needs to be."
PATHOLOGY's next U.S. tour as the support act for GRAVE and BLOOD RED THRONE will kick off on August 30.
2010 was a volatile year for PATHOLOGY. While it saw the band releasing its Victory Records debut, "Legacy Of The Ancients", and doing three tours (alongside NILE, IMMOLATION/VADER and DESTROYER 666), the group was plagued by a rotation of fill-in singers and ultimately a horrible van accident that derailed the band from continuing.
Since that tragic event November 10, the guys have been putting things back in order. In addition to a new van, trailer and gear, PATHOLOGY has also enlisted a new full-time vocalist to replace original voice Matti Way, who was unable to tour with the band. Jonathan Huber, formerly of I DECLARE WAR, has taken over duties as frontman for PATHOLOGY. In addition to his stellar vocal capabilities, Jonathan proved to have the right attitude and presence that won him the spot. In addition, the band has welcomed back guitarist Tim Tiszczenko, who stepped down midway through the touring cycle. Tim joins his replacement guitarist Kevin Schwartz for a dual-guitar assault. Both guitar players have also been writing new material in the downtime, bringing a whole new level of intensity to the band.
