Malignancy is a death metal[1] band from Yonkers, New York formed in 1992.[2]


Malignancy formed in February 1992 from the initiative of vocalist Danny Nelson and guitarist Javier Velez.[1] They released their first demo titled Eaten Out From Within in April 1993. After multiple line-up changes and three more demos the band finally secured a deal with United Guttural Records in 1998. Shortly after, the band released their first album, Intrauterine Cannibalism in Spring of 1999. Soon they released an EP titled Motivated By Hunger. In 2001 a compilation entitled Ignorance Is Bliss was released through Primitive Recordings. It contained material from the Eaten Out From Within and Ignorance Is Bliss demos, and a 1998 promo CD. In 2003 they released one more EP, called Cross Species Transmutation. After the release the band began a three-year long search for a new label, which ended with them signing to Willowtip Records in 2006 and releasing a full-length titled Inhuman Grotesqueries on 7 August 2007. The band released Eugenics, its third full-length, in 2012.
