Cognitive was born in 2011 with the sole intent to create heavy, intensely technical music, while maintaining an edge of creativity that separates them from the over produced sea of sub genres. Hailing from South Jersey, combining technicality, guitar solos, grooves, and abstract ideas with song writing, Cognitive is continually pushing itself to think outside of the box while maintaining a sheer brutal edge.

The 2012 release of their debut EP, The Horrid Swarm, proved Cognitive to be one of the most brutal and intense new bands on the scene and led to a deal with Spain’s Pathologically Explicit Records. Since then, Cognitive has embarked upon countless weekend-warrior tours, three extended outings with the likes of Devourment, Psyopus, Gorod, Wormed, Infernal Revulsion, and Condemned and has shared bills with bands such as Between the Buried and Me, Cattle Decapitation, Suffocation, Broken Hope, Wretched, Misery Index, Origin and tons more.

With their new self-titled album, featuring artwork by Tony Koehl (Black Dahlia Murder,Job For a Cowboy, et al.), released to worldwide acclaim, Cognitive seeks only to advance itself musically and export New Jersey’s undying hatred globally.
