Pittsburgh death metal squad Signs of the Swarm unleash their latest full-length, The Disfigurement Of Existence on Unique Leader Records. The ten-track offering was mixed and mastered by Phil Pluskota (Abiotic, King Conquer) of Sonic Assult Studios in Cape Corral, Florida, features a guest appearance by Dickie Allen (Abiotic, Bludgeoned Beyond Reason, Infant Annihilator), and comes swathed in the cover renderings of Par Olaffson (Aborted, Abysmal Dawn, Revocation, Immolation).
Offers vocalist CJ McCreery, "Our first album Senseless Order was mainly to get the point across that we know how to bring the heavy. A lot of the songs were fairly slow and nothing really stood out as far as appealing to anyone more than the standard ‘deathcore' fan base. For The Disfigurement of Existence, we all dove into our own craft and stepped our game up one-hundred-percent individually to really bring this album together and be more than just a standard ‘deathcore' band.
"We got our new guitarist (Jacob Toy) and drummer (Jimmy Pino) right when we started the writing process for TDOI and immediately realized that all of our minds working together could make an absolutely insane album, and I feel like we accomplished that goal. The guitar riffs are way more intricate, Jimmy's drumming is fucking batshit crazy, and I made sure to really step it up vocally and lyrically."
