COGNITIVE Return With Crushing Single ‘Abhorrence’

Share This:

Technical death metal troupe COGNITIVE is back with Abhorrence, set for release on May 17 on Metal Blade Records.

The band’s fifth full-length album and a tremendously worthy successor to 2021’s Malevolent Thoughts Of A Hastened Extinction, Abhorrence finds the New Jersey powerhouse quintet at its brutal best. Unrelenting riffs leave the listener stunned, while a wave of thoughtful, devastating lyrics washes over. The album is a raging, draining, and ultimately fulfilling experience.

COGNITIVE started work on Abhorrence while touring in support of Malevolent Thoughts Of A Hastened Extinction, sending tracks back and forth while trekking from one intense gig to the next. “There were riffs and ideas that didn’t make Malevolent Thoughts…,” notes guitarist Rob Wharton. “We just kept toiling away with it. And then we recorded the ‘Rot Eternal’ single in between touring. So, it’s been just nonstop writing.”
