Cognitive Crush On “Haunted Justice”

New Jersey’s death metal tyrants, Cognitive, are preparing to release their new album, Deformity, through Unique Leader. The album drops on October 28th, but you can hear the shiny new track “Haunted Justice” now at

Deformity was captured at Full Force Studio by Joe Cincotta (Suffocation, Internal Bleeding, Dehumanized) and mastered at West West Side Studios by Alan Douches (Cannibal Corpse, Converge, Black Breath, Mastodon, et al.).

About the track, the band said:

‘Haunted Justice’ is about a town of tortured people attempting to exact their revenge on the witches that have stolen, sacrificed, and consumed their children. The only problem is, when you kill the host body to Pure Evil, you only wind up doing it the favor of releasing it and unleashing true terror onto the world. Give it a listen, read, and learn the lyrics so you can sing with us next time we’re in your town. Also, listen closely to the amazing guest spots from Misery Index’s very own Mark Kloeppel who absolutely killed the track and brought a visceral sound of hate to life in his performance.

In conjunction with the release of Deformity, Cognitive will bring their maniacal odes to the stage on the two-plus week Birthing the Deformity U.S. Tour, which runs from October 28th through November 13th, with additional onstage abrasions to be announced in the weeks to follow. See dates below.
