There was a Midwest metalfest this week at the E Street Pub when Cognitive and Hath showed up.
Hath and Cognitive, both death metal bands from New Jersey, are on tour for a few weeks, hitting venues from New York to Chicago to Atlanta. On Tuesday night, they rattled the brick walls of the E Street Pub in Richmond, Indiana.
Hath went up first. They released a new album in March, All That Was Promised (Willowtip Records), and they are on the road carrying those new songs to the waiting world.
Cognitive has been laying down the metal for more than a decade. Their catalogue boasts four fierce long-players, including the newest, 2021’s Malevolent Thoughts of a Hastened Extinction (Unique Leader Records). In the past few months, Cognitive announced they have signed with Metal Blade Records, and I bet that means a new album is not far off.
Check out the links below for music and merchandise. Cognitive is on the road right now with Hath and Inoculation through May 8th. See the tour poster for cities and dates.
