Today Blistering.com is hosting the exclusive premiere of “Cataclysmic Euphoria” from New York technical death/grind behemoths Malignancy. The track comes off the band’s forthcoming offering of repugnance, "Eugenics," slated to drop in North America on October 9th, 2012 through Willowtip Records.
Check out the song via Blistering.com or in the player available below. Comments vocalist Danny Nelson of the track: “Enjoy this next malignant slice of Eugenics. ‘Cataclysmic Euphoria’ has a mixed flavor of essential bliss. The song is a bit different from our normal writing style, a direction we plan on revisiting again in the future.”
The long-running band’s third studio offering is loosely based around the concept of eugenics — defined as “the study of or belief in the possibility of improving the qualities of the human species or a human population, especially by such means as discouraging reproduction by persons having genetic defects or presumed to have inheritable undesirable traits (negative eugenics) or encouraging reproduction by persons presumed to have inheritable desirable traits (positive eugenics).”
Upcoming Malignancy tour dates are as follows:
10/19/2012 NJ Deathfest 4 @ Dingbatz – Clifton, NJ
11/02/2012 The Acheron - Brooklyn, NY
11/10/2012 1st Annual Delaware Deathfest @ Mojo Main - Newark, DE More...
Yonkers, New York-based technical death/grind legends Malignancy are pleased to unleash their latest slab of sonic bestiality in the form of "Eugenics." Set to be unearthed in North America on October 9th, 2012 through Willowtip Records, "Eugenics" was recorded throughout 2010 - 2011 by Eliot Gellar at the Gellar Cellar Studio in Mahopac, New York, mixed and mastered by Luca Minieri at Dissonant Studio in Aosta, Italy and features the cover art of Justin Osbourn of Slasher Designs.
Loosely based around the concept of eugenics — defined as “the study of or belief in the possibility of improving the qualities of the human species or a human population, especially by such means as discouraging reproduction by persons having genetic defects or presumed to have inheritable undesirable traits (negative eugenics) or encouraging reproduction by persons presumed to have inheritable desirable traits (positive eugenics)” — the band’s third full-length hurls forth 10 mercilessly brutal hymns of technically proficient audio carnage.
Elaborates the band in a collective statement: “Eugenics is a culmination of Malignancy past and present with a hint of what's to come in the future. Recording the new tunes with a click track was a totally new experience.”
Check out the first track, “Type Zero Civilization,” in the player available below. More...
