On May 10th, Abnormality will release their third full-length, “Sociopathic Constructs,” via Metal Blade Records. A video for the first single, “Curb Stomp” (directed by David Brodsky // mgenyc.com), can be viewed now below.
Currently on tour with The Black Dahlia Murder, Napalm Death, Pig Destroyer, Misery Index, and Power Trip in the USA, Massachusetts-based extreme metal outfit Abnormality has just launched a video for “Cymatic Hallucinations”, taken from their critically acclaimed album, Mechanisms of Omniscience. Produced, directed, and edited by Jim Foster (red13media.com).
Jim Foster comments: “As we embarked on our second video together, my goal was to portray Abnormality‘s intense energy on a large scale while bringing their concept of a ‘trip’ into the darkness of the mind into a reality. And as always, Metal Blade is incredibly supportive in letting bands and directors see their visions through.”

Massachusetts-based extreme metal outfit Abnormality will be releasing their upcoming sophomore full-length, Mechanisms of Omniscience, on April 29th worldwide via Metal Blade Records! Marrying the ceaseless brutality coming out of New York and New England to the hyper-blasting intensity endemic to Quebecois death metal, Mechanisms of Omniscience is as unrelenting as it is passionate, and the album tackles real world issues with intelligence and raw emotion.
To pre-order Mechanisms of Omniscience, please visit metalblade.com/abnormality, where the record is available in various formats.
Formed in 2005, Abnormality drew its members from the ranks of units such as Teratism, Forced Asphyxiation, Goratory and Sexcrement, and they have worked patiently and persistently to build up a grassroots following, maintaining their integrity while steadily expanding beyond their local scene. In 2010, they dropped their debut EP, The Collective Calm In Mortal Oblivion, which immediately drew attention in the underground, followed by the crushing and critically acclaimed full-length, Contaminating The Hive Mind (2012), cementing their status as one of the heaviest and most dynamic bands in the genre. Now, with their upcoming sophomore effort, Mechanisms of Omniscience – produced once again by Peter Rutcho, and featuring artwork by vocalist Mallika Sundaramurthy – the quintet have never been more serious about getting their message out there, as well as ensuring legions of the moshing masses incur whiplash. See below for the official track-listing!
