PATHOLOGY Announces European Tour With OBITUARY, GRAVE

San Diego, California based death metal warriors PATHOLOGY have announced the bands first European tour with OBITUARY and GRAVE, this spring.

Currently midway through their successful North American tour opening for DEICIDE, Pathology has been performing for enormous crowds while backing some of the biggest names in metal.

“The new lineup is getting along great and we’re killing it onstage, so I’m very happy with things currently,” explains drummer Dave Astor. “2011 is looking like a great year for Pathology.”
