about

Cognizance Leeds, UK

Cognizance was formed in the spring of 2012 when Baillie and Pryce had the belly fire to create a studio based death metal project.

Currently we are not a live performing band due to our lineup arrangement and busy schedules. However this could alter with time.

Track Name: VISCERAL DOUBT
AN EXISTENCE TORMENTED BY VISCERAL DOUBT
INTRINSICALLY BOUND BY LIMITATIONS
I AM TRAPPED IN AN ENDLESS CYCLE.
Track Name: AMPUTATED FROM ACTUALITY
SUSPENSE AWAITS A JOURNEY BETWEEN STATES
THE ONSET OF HEALING SOLITARY PASSAGE OF RESTORATION
GATEWAY TO A DEEPER DIMENSION OF MY CONSCIOUSNESS

THE ANXIOUS TEETH GRIND AND ERODE
SAVORING THE TASTE OF BONE
HABITUAL RITUAL TAINTED BY A FORMLESS BEING
POSSESSING AN ULTERIOR PURPOSE

THE STRUGGLE TO FACE THE INFERNAL NOCTURNAL
THE STRUGGLE TO FACE THE DECEIVER OF THE NIGHT

SUSPENSE AWAITS A JOURNEY BETWEEN STATES
THE ONSET OF HEALING SOLITARY PASSAGE OF RESTORATION
GATEWAY TO A DEEPER DIMENSION OF MY CONSCIOUSNESS

IN MY HEAD I AM TORN APART
MY BODY IS SUBJECTED TO A DECEPTIVE ART
TRANSITIONING BETWEEN WORLDS
ENTERING THIS COLOURLESS DOMAIN
TEETH GRIND AND ERODE SAVORING THE TASTE OF BONE

IN MY HEAD I AM TORN APART
MY BODY IS SUBJECTED TO A DECEPTIVE ART
TRANSITIONING BETWEEN WORLDS
ENTERING THIS COLOURLESS DOMAIN
TEETH GRIND AND ERODE SAVORING THE TASTE OF BONE

CEASELESS INVOLUNTARY CYCLES LIMIT CONTROL
AS A SILHOUETTE STUDIES MY DORMANT BODY
AROUSED BY VULNERABILITY THIS ENIGMATIC PRESENCE CONSTRAINS ALL MY FLESH

THE ANXIOUS REFLECTIONS STIMULATE THE INTERNAL SICKNESS
MUSCLE FIBERS IN A FROZEN STATE OF IMMINENT DREAD

GRUELING AMPUTATION FROM REALITY?
PERHAPS DISSECTION OF A TRUE ACTUALITY
SKEPTICISM SURROUNDS THE NATURE OF THIS SLUMBER


GRUELING AMPUTATION FROM REALITY?
PERHAPS DISSECTION OF A TRUE ACTUALITY
SKEPTICISM SURROUNDS THE NATURE OF THIS SLUMBER.
Track Name: CHOKING ON THE SANDS
MUSCLES CEASE TO RESPOND
MOVEMENT IS AN UNATTAINABLE CONCEPT
DEVOID OF ALL CONTROL
MOTIONLESS REACH FOR AN ESCAPE
MOTIONLESS REACH FOR ACTUALITY
FIGHTING TO TRANSCEND
MOTIONLESS REACH FOR ACTUALITY
FIGHTING TO TRANSCEND THIS ILLUSORY EXPERIENCE

NOW I ONLY KNOW AN ABSENCE OF LIGHT
WITH THE ABSENCE OF SIGHT
CONCEALED BY THE CLOAK OF THE NIGHT
CONCEALED BY THE CLOAK OF THE NIGHT
AN INSIDIOUS GUEST CRUSHING MY CHEST
CONCEALED BY THE CLOAK OF THE NIGHT
CONCEIVED IN THE ABSENCE OF LIGHT

CONCEALED BY THE CLOAK OF THE NIGHT
AN INSIDIOUS GUEST CRUSHING MY CHEST
CONCEALED BY THE CLOAK OF THE NIGHT
CONCEIVED IN THE ABSENCE OF LIGHT

AN INSIDIOUS PRESENCE CIRCLES
WITNESSING THE PLEA TO BE DISSECTED FROM THIS HARROWING SPECTRUM

STALKED BY THE FORMLESS
MY STATIC SHELL HAS BECOME A LIVING STATUE
CHOKING ON THE SANDS OF INVISIBLE HANDS
STALKED BY THE FORMLESS IN THE COLOURLESS PRISON
CONFINED TO A CELL WITHIN A LIGHT-LESS FUCKING TOMB


AN INSIDIOUS PRESENCE CIRCLES
WITNESSING THE PLEA TO BE DISSECTED FROM THIS HARROWING SPECTRUM

AN INSIDIOUS GUEST CRUSHING MY CHEST
CONCEALED BY THE CLOAK OF THE NIGHT
CONCEIVED IN THE ABSENCE OF LIGHT.
Track Name: SPECTRUM
NEARING THE CONCLUSION OF A HARROWING CYCLE
FOREVER DRAGGED THROUGH AN ENDLESS CYCLE OF DOUBT
A TREACHEROUS JOURNEY
NOW REACHING A FOREGROUND OF FAMILIARITY
NEARING THE CONCLUSION OF A HARROWING CYCLE
FOREVER DRAGGED THROUGH AN ENDLESS CYCLE OF DOUBT
A TREACHEROUS JOURNEY
NOW REACHING A FOREGROUND OF FAMILIARITY

THE EVOLVED SENSES EXHIBIT THE QUESTIONABLE PILLARS OF REALITY
INTRINSICALLY BOUND BY THE LIMITATIONS OF ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY
WHAT CAN ONE BELIEVE?

NOW IN A STATE OF A RELATIVE NORMALITY
FACING ONCE BELIEVED NORMALITY
IS THIS REALITY?
NOW IN A STATE OF A RELATIVE NORMALITY
FACING ONCE BELIEVED NORMALITY
IS THIS REALITY?

NEARING THE CONCLUSION OF A HARROWING CYCLE
FOREVER DRAGGED THROUGH AN ENDLESS CYCLE OF DOUBT
A TREACHEROUS JOURNEY
NOW REACHING A FOREGROUND OF FAMILIARITY

THE EVOLVED SENSES EXHIBIT THE QUESTIONABLE PILLARS OF ACTUALITY
INTRINSICALLY BOUND BY THE LIMITATIONS OF ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY
WHAT CAN ONE BELIEVE?

A LUCID PROJECTION WHERE THE ANATOMY HAS A PURPOSE
MOVEMENT IS SUBLIME
MOTION IS FREE FROM THE SHACKLES OF HELLISH RESTRICTION

NEARING THE CONCLUSION OF A HARROWING CYCLE
FOREVER DRAGGED THROUGH AN ENDLESS CYCLE OF DOUBT
A TREACHEROUS JOURNEY
WHAT CAN ONE BELIEVE?

NOW IN A STATE OF A RELATIVE NORMALITY
FACING ONCE BELIEVED NORMALITY
IS THIS REALITY?
NOW IN A STATE OF A RELATIVE NORMALITY
FACING ONCE BELIEVED NORMALITY
