New Noise Magazine has launched the exclusive stream in The Rapturous Unraveling, the newest material from Atlanta death metal purists MALFORMITY. Now available on 7-inch vinyl via Boris Records, The Rapturous Unraveling delivers a lethal dose of violent OSDM that digs deep into the roots of extreme metal.

The band comments on the release:

“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. 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.”

Prepare yourself for two unrelenting and punishing tracks of pure old-s school death metal that will swallow your soul!

“…burly old-school death metal that will have fans of Autopsy, Nile, Asphyx, and classic Dying Fetus banging their heads and acting the fool.” – Metal Sucks


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. This is not the cavernous variety the term denotes today, but actual old-school death metal. Further shaped by influences in grind, thrash, and doom, Malformity create a uniquely brutal and cerebral sound in the Atlanta metal scene.

Malformity released two crushing demos in 1995 before dissolving indefinitely.  The original members and newer recruits remained active in bands such as Regurgitate, General Surgery, Amoebic Dysentery, Dwarfophile, Disillusioned, and Neuroblast, among others. In 2014, Malformity resurfaced from the ashes of Atlanta death metal band Lectures On The Apocalypse and released an EP in 2015.

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 acts.
