ABNORMALITY – Sociopathic Constructs

Formed in 2005 from Marlborough, Massachusetts, Abnormality play a style of death, sci-fi, conspiracy theorists and versatile style of both technical death and brutal death metal. I recently discovered them around 2015 when I heard their single, Swarm off on 2016’s Metal Blade Records release of Mechanisms Of Omniscience and since then, Abnormality have became one of my top ten favorite bands of all time. Now with 2019’s Sociopathic Constructs, they’ve borrowed elements from Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Cryptopsy, Deeds of Flesh and Dying Fetus with a unique categorized style combining technical brutal death metal, the instrumentation, vocal delivery, lyricism and production value are upgraded significantly where each track contains the most catatonic, aggressive and progressive layers the band has put out to date.

From technicality arrangements, slam oriented guitars, visceral vocal deliverance and characterize bass/ drum sequences, this album is fulfilling, Brutal, chaotic and just a reminder that they’ve studied long and hard to create a album that’s extremely well polished, crafted and did one hell of a job experimenting different signatures front to back upon hearing this magnificent creation. The album also does a wonderfully splendid job rotating the musicianship allowing every member from Abnormality truly shine their own organic counterparts where the variations may not overshadow the talented playing authentication skills but rather create a album that’s polished, clear and spreading their devotion for extreme music has been a fascinating listening experience.

Overall, this record met my expectations very highly and if you enjoyed Mechanisms Of Omniscience or their past material you’re gonna get another continuation pushing boundaries for death metal to a whole new level showing differential passages and a style so organically ambitious you definitely should not sleep on this.

Overall Score: 9.0/10
