Pathogen" was the fifth industry album released and the fifth overall. It was released in 2007 and featured songs of the Epic Futrusitic Metal variety mostly composed by Nick Phoenix. Thus far, only five songs have been released to the public on albums Invincible, Demon's Dance and Halloween. A remixed version of Iron Soul, the only song composed solely by Thomas Bergersen on this album, was later released on Burn.

Description #1 (TSFH Website):Edit

Two Steps From Hell Pathogen released in 2007. Nick has always been interested in electronic sounds and synthesizer programming and Pathogen was an attempt to fuse electronica with epic film music. There are some real successes and a few epic fails! lol.

Description #2 (YouTube channel):Edit

A stunning fusion of Electronica, Dark metal, Orchestra and Other-Worldly Rock. 18 original compositions from Two Steps co-founder: Nick Phoenix.

"I've been wanting to do a cd like this for years, but somehow I just couldn't pull it off till now. I retro-fitted my studio with a ton of analogue gear and recorded many rock tracks at Cello in Hollywood, while it was closed to the public. Most tracks do not introduce any orchestra until late in the piece, so you can go with the pure electronica/rock vibe or use the artfully done, symbiotic, electronic/ orchestra hybrid sections. Pathogen has a lot of driving electronica, but also features other-worldly rock and eerie, horror rock tracks, as well. Pathogen is set up as a listening experience, and so is not categorized. This is perhaps the most fun I've had as a composer, and the tracks are fun to listen to, as well." -Nick Phoenix.
