Pathogen - Miscreants Of Bloodlusting Aberrations

Miscreants Of Bloodlusting Aberrations
by Angela "The Hunter" at 04 March 2013, 4:40 PM

First off, the term “miscreants” is an underused descriptive. That being said, PATHOGEN has my vote for one of the best metal album titles ever. Creative, enthusiastic, and on point for the content of the album. Nothing irritates me more than grabbing an album with a witty title, only to find out the title has nothing to do with what I’m listening to on top of the fact the album sucks. Many a CD has met its fate being tossed out the window my car for such treason.

PATHOGEN comes to us from the Philippines, clamoring for a spot in the metal community. They certainly have found their place after over a decade of lineup changes, label hopping, and brief stints of inactivity. Their album "Miscreants Of Bloodlusting Aberrations" is a good, standard Death Metal album, dancing close the edge of grind. It starts off rather slow, with "Atrocity" and "Monolith" being a bit less than stellar. The album picks up progressively, giving Willie Desamero and Jervish Alcos’s guitars a chance to shine. The drums are great with Nino Jerome Aranza’s bass filling out the rhythm foundation. Throughout the entire album, the vocals are growly, mean, and spiteful, perfect for their sound. The guitars are grungy, low, and at odds with each other at times, not really complementing or supporting the mutual riffs.

All in all, it’s a good album, but nothing to get that “punch your neighbor” angry / excited about. With the kind of history and experience these guys have, I was expecting a bit more of a mature album. For a rating, I would say 6 out of ten. As always, stay well, and live free my friends! Cheers!
