After releasing an EP and full-length, COGNITIVE signed to Unique Leader Records in 2016 and released their album Deformity, which showed the bands dedication to their craft within a tale about their home state’s own legend about the Jersey Devil. Ramping up their tour schedule, the band continued to write and push themselves within the genre with technicality, speed, brutality, and songwriting, which came to shine through even more on the 2018 release Matricide, which displayed more focused effort while increasing speed and technicality even more. 2021 saw the release of their decimating Malevolent Thoughts Of A Hastened Extinction full-length where the band displayed more diversity and expansive songwriting more than ever, the album proving yet again that COGNITIVE is never afraid to explore new concepts and musical territory. Kerrang! crowned the record, “A furious slab of heartfelt rage, showcasing the band’s signature speed and technicality while incorporating new levels of melody and emotion,” while Decibel Magazine hailed, “Technical guitar riffs and guttural vocals rip side by side with a bludgeoning rhythm section for big results.” Stand by for further COGNITIVE news to be unveiled in the months to come.
