Malignancy to release new album in October
Official press release: Yonkers, New York-based technical death/grind legends Malignancy are pleased to unleash their latest slab of sonic bestiality in the form of Eugenics. Set to be unearthed in North America on October 9, 2012 through Willowtip Records, Eugenics was recorded throughout 2010 - 2011 by Eliot Geller at the Geller Cellar Studio in Mahopac, New York, mixed and mastered by Luca Minieri at Dissonant Studio in Aosta, Italy and features the cover art of Justin Osbourn of Slasher Designs. Loosely based around the concept of eugenics — defined as "the study of or belief in the possibility of improving the qualities of the human species or a human population, especially by such means as discouraging reproduction by persons having genetic defects or presumed to have inheritable undesirable traits (negative eugenics) or encouraging reproduction by persons presumed to have inheritable desirable traits (positive eugenics)" — the band's third full-length hurls forth 10 mercilessly brutal hymns of technically proficient audio carnage. Elaborates the band in a collective statement: "Eugenics is a culmination of Malignancypast and present with a hint of what's to come in the future. Recording the new tunes with a click track was a totally new experience." Check out the first track, "Type Zero Civilization": In the near future humans will face the very real threat of extinction. Either natural or man-made, it will come to pass. Eugenics is an account of what may happen. Forced to dwell hundreds of miles underground, in an abandoned U.S. archive, they fight to live. This installation still contains all the necessary previsions needed for survival. A self sufficient complex, far removed from the vigor of life topside. It is equipped with generators, a constant replenishing air supply, even waste management. A perfect habitat for the evolution of the last species on Earth, Man. Eugenics track listing: 01.
