Cognitive have signed with Metal Blade Records.

The technical death metal quintet continues to tour on their 2021 release, Malevolent Thoughts Of A Hastened Extinction, with a new record on deck.

The band issued the following statement:

“It’s beyond humbling to be able to tell everyone we have officially joined the Metal Blade Records roster. We have worked so hard for so long and this is something that is nothing short of a dream come true. We grew up on Metal Blade bands like Cannibal Corpse , Cattle Decapitation , Revocation , The Black Dahlia Murder and so many more. We can’t say thank you enough to them for giving us this opportunity. We also want to thank everyone at Unique Leader for their time and efforts for us for the past 3 records, we appreciate all you did for us.Lastly, thank you to everyone who has supported us. Whether your a day 1 fan or a new fan, it means the world. New record in the works!”
