Hailing from South Jersey, COGNITIVE was born in 2011 with the sole intent to create heavy, intensely technical music, while maintaining an edge of creativity that separates them from the over-produced sea of subgenres. Combining technicality, guitar solos, grooves, and abstract ideas within their songwriting, COGNITIVE is continually pushing itself to think outside of the proverbial box while maintaining an organic and unapologetically brutal edge. COGNITIVE seeks only to advance itself musically and export New Jersey’s undying hatred globally.

“…a perfect mix between brutal, progressive, and chaotic that all melds together into one singular form with only one goal: sheer destruction.” – Metal Injection

“No matter your preference within death metal, you should be able to find elements of COGNITIVE to your liking. Deformity revels in technical riffing that never goes too overboard, grooves and subtle melody that hold your interest, and searing aggression from start to finish. COGNITIVE is ready to make their mark upon death metal.” – Dead Rhetoric

COGNITIVE embrace the weird and deliver some seriously rad and groovy death metal. If Decapitated, Aborted, Benighted, and, say, Pathology, get your blood flowing, then by all means, check out COGINITIVE.” – HeavymuiscHQ

“Deformity is a thirty-minute assault that throws up all your typical tech/brutal-death tropes – slams, grooves, grinds, chugs, slaps, blasts – alongside atypical and rather bizarre touches that make Deformity an enticing listen.” – Angry Metal Guy
