Cognizance will drop their debut full-length record Malignant Dominion on September 6, and so far it's shaping up to kick all kinds of ass. We've already heard the track "Strychnine Shift" that features both Job For A Cowboy vocalist Jonny Davy and ex-Aborted guitarist Mendel Bij De Leij. Now we've got the title track with Extol vocalist Ole Børud, who not only contributed vocals, but a pretty killer guitar solo.
Here's what guitarist Alex Baillie had to say about the track.
“‘Malignant Domain’ is one of my favorite tracks from the album. There are a bunch of different flavors in there while keeping the intensity up to almost 11. Having Ole Børud be a part of the track was a big deal for me; hearing those signature layered up vocal harmonies on one of our tracks was pretty surreal. I think all of us in the band brought something cool to the table on this one.”
Malignant Dominion will also feature ex-The Faceless vocalist Derek Rydquist, famed producer and guitarist Jason Suecof, and Aborted guitarist Ian Jekelis. Malignant Dominion was mixed by Jason Suecof (Deicide, The Black Dahlia Murder, Death Angel) and was given artwork by Jef Whitehead (Leviathan, Lurker of Chalice).
