Death Metal journeymen MALFORMITY will release long-awaited debut album, Monumental Ruin, April 19 on Unspeakable Axe Records. Album track “Perverse Apotheosis” is streaming now at the following location: youtu.be/xUB3W418M28
It has been a long, torturous road for the veterans of Atlanta death metal band MALFORMITY. Formed initially in 1991, when their own genre was still in its infancy, they created only a handful of demo recordings before calling it quits four years later. A long-overdue reformation happened in 2014, after which the band produced a couple of EPs and honed their craft.
At long last, 30 years after the band’s initial formation, MALFORMITY have produced a monstrous debut album, complete with the suitably forbidding title of Monumental Ruin. Literally decades in the making, this beast shows the band at their sharpest and most evolved, mixing American and European death metal styles with a sure hand. Incorporating grind and doom influences where appropriate, Monumental Ruin is every inch the ancient, towering structure depicted on its atmospheric cover art. This is death metal old in spirit as well as in the age of the band that made it, but with a clear, current-day production and youthful vigor and brutality that keeps pace with any act you might name.
Unspeakable Axe Records is proud to unveil Monumental Ruin on CD and cassette this April, with a vinyl release set to follow in early summer.

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. Further shaped by influences in grind, thrash, and doom, Malformity create a uniquely brutal and cerebral sound in the Atlanta metal scene.
