Pathogen are a band from the Philippines that plays a very raw and primitive form of old school death metal with some thrash, black, and doom metal influences and this is a review of their 2013 album "Miscreants Of Bloodlusting Abberations" which was released by Dunkleheit Produktionen.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast old school death metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding with some thrash, doom, and black metal influences being thrown into the riffing as well as some dark sounding melodies, while the lead guitars are very old school sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all 80's era death metal growls and screams that h ave a blackened death metal feeling to them at times, while the lyrics cover dark and occult themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound to it going back to the original death metal sound with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Pathegen are a very great sounding old school, raw and primitive death metal band with thrash, doom, and black metal influences and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album.
