pathology logoSan Diego-based brutal death metallers PATHOLOGY are putting the finishing touches on their video for the track “Media Consumption”.

Commented drummer Dave Astor: “We picked ‘Media Consumption’ because that song is a true PATHOLOGY track, but also because it adds some new elements as well. We thought it would a good one to show everyone the direction of the new album. The song and the album are by far our best and heaviest material to date. We’re very proud of it and hope you like it.”

A teaser for the video can be seen below.

PATHOLOGY’s new album, “Awaken To The Suffering”, will be released on September 13 via Victory Records. The CD was recorded at Lambesis Studios (owned by AS I LAY DYING vocalist Tim Lambesis) in the band’s hometown with producer Daniel Castleman (IMPENDING DOOM, AS I LAY DYING, WINDS OF PLAGUE). This is PATHOPLOGY’s first CD to feature the group’s new lineup, including vocalist Jonathan Huber and second guitarist Kevin Schwartz, who have spent time on the road with their new bandmates during recent U.S. and European tours with DEICIDE and OBITUARY.

The artwork for “Awaken To The Suffering” was brought to life by the twisted mind of Pär Olofsson (IMMORTAL, THE FACELESS, ABYSMAL DAWN) and can be seen below.

“The recording came out great. This is by far the best thing we have ever done. Everything is extremely heavy and very tight,” explains Dave Astor.

“It’s great working with Pär again on this cover. He did an amazing job. We decided to do a pencil sketch cover this time around. We also brought back the evil doctor to continue the zombie havoc.”

PATHOLOGY is currently on the road as the support act for GRAVE and BLOOD RED THRONE.
