Pathology Seeks New Cookie Monster
PATHOLOGY SEEKS NEW COOKIE MONSTER
Blabbermouth.net reports: Cookie Monster-sound-a-like vocalist Matti Way has quit the death metal/grindcore band Pathology. The group states, "We are extremely disappointed and bummed over this. Matti has other stuff going on right now and we wish him the best. Because of this we are canceling a few upcoming shows."
The band continues, "We are once again looking for a new singer. We need someone that will put their heart and soul into this band. And you must be able to play shows/tours, and lives in the San Diego area or be willing to relocate.
"To try out: Try singing any of our songs and e-mail us through MySpace or email: email@example.com."
Pathology's latest album Age of Onset was released in May via Comatose Music. The CD was recorded at Double Time Studio in El Cajon, California. The cover artwork was created by Pär Olofsson.
Pathology was formed in the beginning of 2006 by Dave Astor (The Locust, Cattle Decapitation) and Levi Fuselier (Disgorge). They were later joined by vocalist Matti Way (Disgorge, Liturgy, Cinerary). The band's debut album Surgically Hacked was released in September 2006 on Amputated Vein Records (Japan).
In July 2007, the band signed with Grindhead Records (Australia) to release Incisions Of Perverse Debauchery in 2008.
In July 2008, Pathology announced the addition of singer/second guitarist Mason Gregory (Element) to the group's ranks. The band says, "We have been working hard perfecting our sound and preparing for shows and tours. . . Levi Fuselier (Disgorge) will no longer be doing the vocals for Pathology. We appreciate his time and effort and wish him the best of luck in the future."
In December 2008, Pathology signed to Comatose Music, who released Age of Onset in May, 2009. The CD was recorded at Double Time Studio in El Cajon, California. The cover artwork was created by Pär Olofsson.
In 2009, secondary singer Mason Gregory left the band, followed by this month's departure of lead singer Matti Way.
