From The Press Release
New Jersey’s bone-shattering death metal band, COGNITIVE, have just released a new single today titled Rot Eternal. Check it out here.
Here’s what the band has to say about the new track: “Rot Eternal was the second song we had written for our upcoming album, and when we did our pre-production recording we kept coming back to the song and saying ‘man this is like, REALLY awesome.’ We ended up tossing the idea around of releasing it as a stand alone single, and eventually went with it.
The single felt so cool to us with riffs repeating themselves, a gigantic slam in the middle, and the unexpected outro all felt so natural to us. Tying it all up is artwork by Dahmer Art which captures the song’s lyrical theme and everyone’s favorite topic…ZOMBIES! We hope you all enjoy this stand alone single, and keep an eye out for the new record next year!“
COGNITIVE is currently on tour with Portugal’s Analepsy for a month-long North American tour. The Quiescence Tour kicked off July 7th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and runs through August 5th in Brooklyn, New York. Additional support will be provided by Wormhole and NecroticGoreBeast. The tour follows COGNITIVE‘s recent US tour supporting Gorod.

About the band:
After releasing an EP and full length, COGNITIVE signed to Unique Leader Records in 2016 and released their album Deformity, which showed the bands dedication to their craft within a tale about their home states own legend about the Jersey Devil. Ramping up their tour schedule, the band continued to write and push themselves within the genre with technicality, speed, brutality, and songwriting, which came to shine through even more on the 2018 release Matricide, which displayed more focused effort while increasing speed and technicality even more. The band wasted no time in their touring schedule and hit the road supporting Fit for an Autopsy, Rivers of Nihil, Through the Eyes of the Dead, Vulvodynia, Lorna Shore and others, along with an appearance at Maryland Deathfest. COGNITIVE has become a touring machine with one goal in mind – always move forward.
Now with the release of their latest album Malevolent Thoughts of a Hastened Extinction (2022), the band has displayed more diversity and song writing more than ever and proves yet again they are never scared to explore new concepts musically and explore new territory.
