Distorted Cognitions – Incipient/Proletariat

Want to listen to some harsh and violent experimental black metal, but don’t have the guts to listen to Abu Lahab? Then check this album out!

Distorted Cognitions is a experimental black metal band by McWilliams, and revolves around philosophic and scientific themes. It was founded in 2006 and released the fist album in 2008, in a limited edition of fifty copies.

Incipient/Proletariat, and the other albums, are quite high concept albums and not for the closed-minded or the weak-hearted.

The album blends dark and dreary ambient track, which would fit quite nicely in a soundtrack for dark, abandoned industrial/mental facilities; with ugly, harsh and destroyed industrial-ish black metal , reminicent of the Moroccan project Abu Lahab. Incipient/Proletariat is a great album, check it out!

    Good stuff, really enjoyed it. Could you link me to more music like this, or post something from Abu lahab, I browsed the web and couldn’t find anything (kept getting shitty muslim websites lol)

    • Well, since Abū Lahab was the prophet Muhammed’s uncle and one of the opposers and enemies of Islam, it’s not weird that Muslims talk about him. Anyway there will be a post on Friday about Abu Lahab!
