Cognitive share standalone single, "Rot Eternal"
Cognitive has recently shared a brand new track by the name of "Rot Eternal," serving as a precursor to their forthcoming album through Metal Blade Records. While initially intended to be part of the album, the band felt compelled to release "Rot Eternal" as a standalone single.
This decision was driven by their admiration for the song's structure, with its repeating riffs, powerful mid-section, and unexpected outro. Complementing the lyrical themes of the track, the artwork was crafted by Dahmer Art. The full track is available to stream below.
Here's what the band has to say about the new track:
"Rot Eternal was the second song we had written for our upcoming album, and when we did our pre-production recording we kept coming back to the song and saying 'man this is like, REALLY awesome.' We ended up tossing the idea around of releasing it as a stand alone single, and eventually went with it.
The single felt so cool to us with riffs repeating themselves, a gigantic slam in the middle, and the unexpected outro all felt so natural to us. Tying it all up is artwork by Dahmer Art which captures the song's lyrical theme and everyone's favorite topic...ZOMBIES! We hope you all enjoy this stand alone single, and keep an eye out for the new record next year!"
