Pathogenic is a five-piece metal outfit from Massachusetts that takes their listeners on a wild ride with every track. At first listen I expected to be pelted with Blast beats, low tuned strings, deep screaming which would be par for the course with most New England metal bands. However, the guy's in Pathogenic managed to surprise me with the recordings of their 2012 independent release, "The Solopsist Dream." The EP has all the right metal characteristics, while adding in frantic rides up and down their frets, guitars set and tuned in a way that you can hear every last insane note with epic and ghoulishly erie breakdowns. The two stand out tracks for me were "A Piece of Hell" and "Cobwebs We Keep." Make sure you check the EP out on their Facebook Page right after you go ahead and give them a like.
Make sure you also check out the band this Friday in Worcester opening up for The Acacia Strain, along side Conforza, at the palladium. More details can again be found on their Facebook page.
