Both shows have been rescheduled for August 30 and September 1 respectively. The shows scheduled for Raleigh, NC and Atlanta, GA will go on as planned without ENTHRONED and feature only Australian black thrashers Deströyer 666 and California death metallers Pathology, who will provide support through the rest of the tour.

American brutal death metallers Pathology make their return from the studio with a new album titled "Legacy of the Ancients." The upcoming Victory Records debut, slated for release on July 6th, was engineered by Jeff Forest at Doubletime Studios in the band’s home base of San Diego, CA and was mixed and mastered by Erik Rutan at Mana Studios in Tampa, FL.
“We feel the recording came out extremely heavy and exactly how we wanted,” expresses drummer Dave Astor. “The drums are explosive, the guitars are thick and very tight, and the vocals are brutally crushing.” The album cover displays a zombie theme, which was designed by Par Olofsson (Winds of Plague, Annotations Of An Autopsy, Immortal). The artwork can be viewed here. “The cover shows a doctor injecting people with a virus that is turning them into zombies,” states Astor. “It is a metaphor for the government control over our people."

Pathology has announced their signing to Victory Records with the following message:
"It is with great pleasure that we announce our signing to Victory Records! We have been working tirelessly at writing new music and are ecstatic to be putting our next album out through Victory. We would like to thank Tony and the Pathology team for their diligent efforts in bringing Pathology and Victory together.

Pathology has issued the following update welcoming their new vocalist, Pascual Romero:

We have begun rehearsing, writing and recording new music which will be followed by touring and preparation for our next album. Pascual is best known for being the vocalist of underground death metal band Strangled by Strangulation as well as his tenure as the bass player for Century Media band In This Moment.

Pathology has issued the following update regarding the departure of their singer, Matti Way:
"As of today singer Matti Way has quit Pathology. 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." More...
Pathology has issued the following explanation regarding the cancellation of their upcoming US tour with Master:
"We are forced to drop off our upcoming US tour with Master. One of the reasons. We can not afford it. The tour slowly became smaller and smaller, Our guaranty was basically cut in half at the last minute, and we never receiver our contract for the tour that we were promised. I guaranty Master has a contract. Which means if a show is not a success they get paid first before any one else."
"Members of Pathology have toured several times and completely understand that you do not make much money doing this. When you have to spend possibly hundreds, maybe thousands out of your own pocket to come play some show. That still are not completely booked... That's just not worth it." More...

Master has signed to Pulverised Records. A&R Manager of Pulverised Records, Calvin, comments on the signing"MASTER was and is still truly an influential band and I would daringly assumed that a lot of the early Extreme Metal bands were somehow influenced by MASTER, but was probably never open and admitted widely. Paul Speckmann was really enthusiatic to join the Pulverised family and furthermore, very easy to work with. There were so many things that we have discussed and were definitely on the same page, so an album deal was struck in no time. We hope that with our support on the upcoming new album, it will be MASTER's most devastating and crushing album yet!" More...
