Selfmadegod Records presents an official CD release of the eponymous 2016 debut album from Dallas, Texas-based tech death/grind quintet, COGNIZANT.
The debut full-length from the now widely recognized COGNIZANT presents a memorable dose of dark, angular, tech-grind that slithers and weaves as much as it pummels with savagery. Warped high velocity groove in the vein of early-1990s East Coast tech forefathers Human Remains and Lethargy with a nod to the current dissonance of Gorguts or Deathspell Omega. Propelled by drum wizard and blastbeat stalwart Bryan Fajardo (Noisear, PLF, Gridlink), the nine tracks on Cognizent were recorded, mixed, and mastered at Anomalous Mind Engineering. This is elite grindcore of the highest order.
Initially released in 2016 in a short CDR run, Selfmadegod now presents Coginizant with a proper CD pressing and distribution.
