On May 10th, ABNORMALITY will release their third full-length, “Sociopathic Constructs” through Metal Blade Records. For a first taste of it a first single titled “A Catastrophic and Catalyzing Event”, can be streamed above.
Sociopathic Constructs serves to further cement Abnormality’s place at the cutting edge of savage ultra-technical death metal. With the follow up to 2016’s Mechanisms Of Omniscience, the Marlborough, Massachusetts quintet have stepped up their game across the board, making for a record that is as violent, complex and thought provoking as any you will hear in 2019, and the band were not afraid to explore and mix things up. “I think this record we felt free enough to just go where we wanted to within a song,” states guitarist Jeremy Henry. “We had no qualms with switching styles and approaches from riff to riff. To have a whole section grinding away and then just switch gears, hit the brakes and drop a slow, old school Morbid Angel warship groove in there. We felt free to follow our instincts, and just let our influences shine through.”
With Mechanisms of Omniscience opening the door for the band to tour with Suffocation, Napalm Death, The Black Dahlia Murder, Pig Destroyer, and Misery Index, their profile has risen dramatically between records. “We learned so much from the past few years of touring, including how to handle adversity. In turn, we have matured and grown as musicians and people,” declares vocalist Mallika Sundaramurthy.
