A hard-hitting death metal unit based out of Marlborough, Massachusetts, Abnormality deliver a punitive blast of tech-heavy, groove-laden extreme metal that invokes names like Suffocation, Immolation, and Hate Eternal. Abnormality was founded in 2005 after vocalist Mallika Sundaramurthy joined the group Teratism on-stage for a blistering take on Sepultura's "Desperate Cry." Teratism members Jay (drums) and Michael (lead guitar/vocals) were so impressed with Sundaramurthy that they instantly forged a side project for her. The newly minted Abnormality expanded into a five-piece and soon became a full-time gig. A three-song demo appeared in 2007 -- the cut "Visions" found its way onto the popular video game Rock Band 2 as a bonus track. The band released a proper three-track EP in 2009 called The Collective Calm in Mortal Oblivion, and in 2016 they issued their debut studio long player, Mechanisms of Omniscience, via Metal Blade Records. ~ James Christopher Monger
