Upcoming sophomore album!

April 14th, 2016 –

Massachusetts-based extreme metal outfit Abnormality will be releasing their upcoming sophomore full-length, Mechanisms of Omniscience, on April 29th worldwide via Metal Blade Records! Marrying the ceaseless brutality coming out of New York and New England to the hyper-blasting intensity endemic to Quebecois death metal, Mechanisms of Omniscience is as unrelenting as it is passionate, and the album tackles real world issues with intelligence and raw emotion.

For a preview of Mechanisms of Omniscience, a new video for the title track (directed and produced by Jim Foster of red13media.com) can be viewed now at metalinjection.net.

Be sure to check out the following previously released singles for another taste of Mechanisms of Omniscience: –”Cymatic Hallucinations”: soundcloud.com –”Swarm”: soundcloud.com

To pre-order Mechanisms of Omniscience, please visit metalblade.com/abnormality, where the record is available in various formats.

Formed in 2005, Abnormality drew its members from the ranks of units such as Teratism, Forced Asphyxiation, Goratory and Sexcrement, and they have worked patiently and persistently to build up a grassroots following, maintaining their integrity while steadily expanding beyond their local scene. In 2010, they dropped their debut EP, The Collective Calm In Mortal Oblivion, which immediately drew attention in the underground, followed by the crushing and critically acclaimed full-length, Contaminating The Hive Mind (2012), cementing their status as one of the heaviest and most dynamic bands in the genre. Now, with their upcoming sophomore effort, Mechanisms of Omniscience – produced once again by Peter Rutcho, and featuring artwork by vocalist Mallika Sundaramurthy – the quintet have never been more serious about getting their message out there, as well as ensuring legions of the moshing masses incur whiplash. See below for the official track-listing!

ABNORMALLITY SIGNS TO METAL BLADE

- October 15th, 2015 –

Metal Blade Records is proud to announce the signing of extreme metal outfit Abnormality! Based in Massachusetts (USA), Abnormality formed in 2005 and now features seasoned members Mallika Sundaramurthy (vocals), Jay Blaisdell (drums), Josh Staples (bass), Sam Kirsch (guitars), and Jeremy Henry (guitars), all hailing from various underground acts such as Goratory, Sexcrement, Parasitic Extirpation, Forced Asphyxiation, and Iranach. Known for their “vicious high speed technicality” (BraveWords.com) and “ruthless brutality” (MetalStorm.net), the quintet is already hard at work on their second album, due out 2016.

Abnormality comments: “We are extremely excited to announce that we have signed with Metal Blade Records and will be releasing our second full-length album through the label in 2016. We couldn’t be happier to start this new evolution of the band with a label that has served as the benchmark of underground metal for thirty plus years.

We are currently in the studio and nearly completed tracking instruments and vocals with Pete Rutcho. The album is sounding killer so far, we can’t wait to unleash it!

We want to take a minute to thank all of you that have believed and supported us through the ups and downs over the years, none of this is possible without you. Cheers!“
