Mechanisms of Omniscience by Abnormality

My review of the new second LP by Marlborough death-metal quintet Abnormality is in today’s Globe. No surprise that I’d dig a record so efficiently brutal; still, it was fun to play Mechanisms of Omniscience enough times repeatedly one day, interspersed with dips into the band’s back catalog (a demo, an EP, and an impressive debut LP) to work out why and then put it into words. And it was also pretty satisfying to file a review that included no reference at all to gender.

Right now, Abnormality – who I first wrote about back in December for a Globe round-up of acts to watch in 2016 – is on the road with Soulfly and Suffocation, playing Revolution in Amityville, NY, on Friday night and Fete Ballroom in Providence, RI, on Saturday. On Sunday the tour hits the Mill City Ballroom in Lowell, MA, expanding into a full-day event. Since I can’t make it to any of those shows, I’ve got my fingers crossed that the band will hit Boston proper, soon and hard.
