The Skinny: We are delighted to be premiering the new song, “Recoil,” from the impressively talented, hard-hitting Fairmont, West Virginia metal quintet Cognition, who on October 21st will be independently releasing their debut self-titled, nine-track album.
Working with producer Jeff Westlake (Hydrogyn, Tracy G and Craig Goldy of Dio, The Godz) was an invaluable and unforgettable experience for Cognition as a developing band. The members absorbed everything they could during the process and learned about what it is like to be in a studio and making an album.
“It wasn’t like we sat down and said, ‘We’re going to write this album this month and record it,'” says drummer and founding member – Evan Michael. “Some songs were written three or four years ago and some were written just about a year ago.” Because of that, the album is a broad representation of the band, as well as a hint of what’s to come.
Cognition Track Listing:
01. The March
04. Words of Insanity
05. Rightful Designation
