Week 4: Malignant Metal

Woooooo!!! Malignancy is back! While I was a fan of their latest LP (Eugenics), the veteran tech-death outfit is returning with a short and sweet EP that seems to be right up my alley. Titled: Malignant Future, this EP focuses on our dive into a desensitized and impotent future, fueled by technology and our quickly fading social competence. The instrumentals are as unrelenting as ever and even for only being a three song EP, it feels extremely coherent. Riffs are sporadic and technical while the drums have a perfect punch in the mix. This EP is in and out before you know it but it leaves you beaten and bruised. The lyrics are definitely the highlight here as I love this view of our society and there has clearly been some thought poured into this EP. Check it out for some classic tech-death!!
