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


Malignancy was 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 unleashed a follow up EP entitled Motivated By Hunger. 2001 saw the release of a demo compilation CD, Ignorance Is Bliss, released through Primitive Recordings. It contains material from the Eaten Out From Within, Ignorance Is Bliss, 1998 promo CD and other rehearsal/demo tracks. Cross Species Transmutation was the last EP released on the now defunct United Guttural label. Originally slated to be a full length, the band decided to record what they had and Roger J. Beaujard parted ways. Mike Heller was then added to the malignant fold. A year's worth of teaching and practicing ensued for the band to prep Mike for live gigs. After the release the band began a two-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. Eugenics is the first concept record for the band dealing with the evolution/devolution of a society in the future. The Epilogue 7 inch, released in 2014 by Haunted Hotel Records, rounds out the story told on the Eugenics full length.

Presently the band is working to complete a demo to circulate for a potential new label deal. It will also be available at shows and on the bandcamp page! Malignant Future is coming soon!!
