The Skinny: 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 10,000 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 Astor on drums, Tim Tiszczenko on guitar, and bassist Oscar Ramirez, recently bringing in new additions Kevin Schwartz on guitar and vocalist Johnathan Huber 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, Pathology’s latest effort, Awaken To The Suffering, has made its debut to the metal masses.

Prizing: ONE (1) grand prize winner will receive a Pathology Awaken To The Suffering CD and a t-shirt. Enter ASAP for this gruesome prize pack.

Deadline: December 1, 2011
