Sub-Genre: Technical Death
Cognitive is a 5 piece Technical Death Metal Band from Columbus, New Jersey. Check out a FULL STREAM of their NEW, Yet to be Released EP “The Horrid Swarm” below.
I’ve had a couple days to let this EP sink in, and I have to say it’s absolutely amazing. The EP gets better with each track, fusing complex song structures, with a blend of different sub-genres. While these guys are definitely Technical Death Metal at their core, you’ll hear touches of Experimental / Progressive styles throughout as well, which is what makes Cognitive so unique. I highly recommend you give this EP a Listen, you’ll see exactly why I like this Band so much.
Our New Jersey Metal Admin, and Manager of Metal Local N.E., Pup says: “Cognitive is one of the Best Metal Bands in the State of New Jersey..”. Coming from a guy that’s posted over a 1000 Local Jersey Metal bands, that’s a hell of a statement!
Seriously though – give this EP a Listen, you’ll be one of the first to get the pleasure of hearing it. If you enjoy it, check these boys out on Facebook OR Reverbnation and let them know METAL Local sent you!
“Cognitive was born in early 2011 with the sole intent to imprint heavy,intense, technical music, while maintaining an edge of creativity that seperates them from the over produced, ocean of sub genres.” – Cognitive
