The most prolific band in death metal is back. Pathology, who so far have managed an album every year for the last four years, have begun the build up to the release of Lords Of Rephaim. This marks their first release for Sevared Records, closing the chapter on their time at none other than Victory Records. The band have released the first track in support of the album by the name of ‘Empire‘, which can be streamed via their website here or in the video below.
The track also marks the return of vocalist Matti Way and guitarist Tim Tiszczenko, which should be good news to anyone who’s been a long time fan of the band, and contains all the hallmarks that would expect from Pathology at this point — the riffs slam and the vocals are low enough to shift tectonic plates. Although I’ve not been the best at keeping up with news lately, I believe this is the first new material we’ve heard in support of Lords Of Rephaim and it’s definitely promising, however the release date will soon be upon us with the record dropping on the 3rd of September, so thankfully we won’t have to wait too long to find out.
