Pittsburgh death metal squad/recent Unique Leader signees SIGNS OF THE SWARM will release their latest full-length, The Disfigurement Of Existence, this fall. The ten-track offering was mixed and mastered by Phil Pluskota (Abiotic, King Conquer) of Sonic Assult Studios in Cape Corral, Florida, features a guest appearance by Dickie Allen (Abiotic, Bludgeoned Beyond Reason, Infant Annihilator et al), and comes swathed in the cover renderings of Par Olaffson (Aborted, Abysmal Dawn, Revocation, Immolation et al).
Offers SIGNS OF THE SWARM vocalist CJ McCreery, “Our first album Senseless Order was mainly to get the point across that we know how to bring the heavy. A lot of the songs were fairly slow and nothing really stood out as far as appealing to anyone more than the standard ‘deathcore’ fan base. For The Disfigurement of Existence , we all dove into our own craft and stepped our game up one-hundred-percent individually to really bring this album together and be more than just a standard ‘deathcore’ band. We got our new guitarist (Jacob Toy) and drummer (Jimmy Pino) right when we started the writing process for TDOI and immediately realized that all of our minds working together could make an absolutely insane album, and I feel like we accomplished that goal. The guitar riffs are way more intricate, Jimmy’s drumming is fucking batshit crazy, and I made sure to really step it up vocally and lyrically. An unbelievable amount of work, sweat, and tears (and probably blood at some point too) went into this album and we are so excited to finally release it to everyone and show what we are now capable of. We cannot wait to see what the near future holds and are extremely excited to tour new places and meet new fans. The amount of support we got in the last year is so incredibly heartwarming and all of us are blessed beyond words to have such awesome fans and be where we are right now in our careers. A huge thanks to Unique Leader Records for believing in us and having us join the team to make this album possible. We’re just getting started.”

SIGNS OF THE SWARM is a five-piece death metal horde hailing from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. With the release of their debut album Senseless Order last year, they began gaining national attention. Said Sputnik Music of the offering, “The mood and ambience are consistent and the breakdowns and build up to them are flawless. Vocals are absolutely incredible.” Combining various styles such as death metal, slam, and hardcore, each song SIGNS OF THE SWARM conjures is sure to maim and crush. With their catchy riffs, raunchy breakdowns, maniacal vocals, and off-the-rails, unapologetically heavy brand of sonic deviance, SIGNS OF THE SWARM is quickly causing a stir within the underground.
