“The songs on The Rapturous Unraveling reflect our passions for death metal, in what we like to listen to, and what we like to play, unhindered by current trends or attempts at appealing to others,” comments Malformity.
“These songs also accurately represent the current lineup of the band. Where the material on the first release was largely already written, these songs were created from the ground up with today’s stronger lineup. They show our collaborative writing style where each member’s input brings something unique to the sound.”

Playing select shows in the Southeast, Malformity have opened for notable acts such as Deicide,
Cannibal Corpse, Misery Index, Nordjevel, Imperial Triumphant, Hobbs Angel of Death, Crowbar, and
Sadistic Intent. The band has also shared the stage with several up and coming underground regional
