Recently signed to Victory Records, San Diego's PATHOLOGY will enter Doubletime Studios today to record its label debut. The band feels very comfortable there with producer/engineer Jeff Forrest, having worked together on the group's previous recordings. Doubletime has been going for 20 years and has a great and diverse client list, including AS I LAY DYING, ATREYU and BLEEDING THROUGH. Upon completion of the tracks, the album will be mixed in March by HATE ETERNAL guitarist Erik Rutan at his Mana Recording (CANNIBAL CORPSE, VITAL REMAINS) in St. Petersburg, Florida for an early summer release.
"We are excited to be working with such a death metal legend," expresses drummer Dave Astor. "We are confident that Erik will help bring us to the next level of brutality!"
In addition, PATHOLOGY has more news as they have undergone a lineup change with the new album with returning vocalist Matti Way and the addition of second guitarist Diego Sanchez (both ex-DISGORGE) joining drummer Dave Astor and guitarist Tim Tiszczenko. The band will be adding a bassist to become a five-piece when touring commences in May.
"We are very excited to be bringing Matti Way back," states Astor. "We feel Matti is the voice of PATHOLOGY, and it would not be the same without him."
In the meantime, the band wants to close with this: "We're prepared to lay down the new PATHOLOGY and it's our most brutal and heaviest to date," promises drummer Dave Astor. "We are stoked to show our fans what we have been working on."
