Atlanta death metal purists MALFORMITY have joined forces with Boris Records for the January release of The Rapturous Unraveling. The 7-inch vinyl delivers a lethal dose of violent OSDM that digs deep into the roots of extreme metal.
Those who witnessed the band’s recent return from a decades-long slumber (ushered in by the Lectures on the Apocalypse EP) can attest to the fact that MALFORMITY is as real and relentless as they come.
Boris Records will unleash The Rapturous Unraveling on January 13. Prepare yourself for two unrelenting and punishing tracks of pure old-school death metal that will swallow your soul.
“…burly old-school death metal that will have fans of Autopsy, Nile, Asphyx, and classic Dying Fetus banging their heads and acting the fool.” – Metal Sucks
Originally founded in 1991 during the peak of the original wave of death metal, Malformity play death metal reflecting the classic Swedish and Florida sounds of that era. This is not the cavernous variety the term denotes today, but actual old-school death metal. Further shaped by influences in grind, thrash, and doom, Malformity create a uniquely brutal and cerebral sound in the Atlanta metal scene.
Malformity released two crushing demos in 1995 before dissolving indefinitely. The original members and newer recruits remained active in bands such as Regurgitate, General Surgery, Amoebic Dysentery, Dwarfophile, Disillusioned, and Neuroblast, among others. In 2014, Malformity resurfaced from the ashes of Atlanta death metal band Lectures On The Apocalypse and released an EP in 2015.
Playing select shows in the Southeast, Malformity have opened for notable acts such as Deicide, Cannibal Corpse, Misery Index, Nordjevel, Imperial Triumphant, Hobbs Angel of Death, Crowbar, and Sadistic Intent. The band has also shared the stage with several up and coming underground regional acts.
