Technical death metal troupe Cognitive are back with Abhorrence, their fifth full length
album and a tremendously worthy successor to 2021’s Malevolent Thoughts of a Hastened
Extinction. This is 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 turbulent, draining but ultimately fulfilling experience.
Cognitive started work on Abhorrence while touring Malevolent Thoughts of a Hastened
Extinction, sending tracks back and forth to each other while trekking from one intense gig
to another. This promises to be a big year for Cognitive, as they take Abhorrence on the road
and bring more people into their vile new world. 13 years after the release of their debut EP,
the band’s fifth full-lengther sees them continue to make giant strides forward while
retaining the elements of their past efforts that got them this far. Abhorrence may provide
therapeutic commentary about how messed up the world currently is, but also, ironically,
provides a breath of fresh air. We’re all in this together, so catch Cognitive on the road this
