Pathology is an American death metal band from San Diego, California, formed in 2006 by drummer Dave Astor (previously with The Locust and Cattle Decapitation).


In 2006 the band released Surgically Hacked (Amputated Vein Records) which was followed by a full-length debut Incisions of Perverse Debauchery (Grindhead Records) and then Age of Onset (Comatose Records, 2009), the album which led to a contract with Victory Records where the acclaimed Legacy of the Ancients was released on July 6, 2010.

The band began extensive touring (with Nile, Immolation, Vader, Obituary, Deicide and Destroyer 666, among others) but in November a horrible van accident derailed the band from continuing. Since then the original vocalist Matti Way has been replaced by Jonathan Huber (formerly of I Declare War). Guitarist Tim Tiszczenko, who at one point departed to be replaced by Kevin Schwartz, returned to form a guitar tandem with the latter. In May 2011 it was announced that Pathology will enter Lambesis Studios this summer with producer Daniel Castleman (Impending Doom, As I Lay Dying, Winds of Plague) to begin working on a new full-length expected in Autumn. On August 30 the band is to start the US tour supporting Grave and Blood Red Throne.

On Dec 18th 2012 it was announced via the band's official site that the have fulfilled their 3 album contract with Victory Records and that both original vocalist Matti Way and original guitarist Tim Tiszczenko have returned to the band. It was also announced that they will have a new album out later in 2013 on their new underground label Sevared Records.
