Mitochondrion hail from Vancouver, British Columbia and have ties to the Ross Bay cemetery. Unlike their Cult brethren, they play monumental Death Metal steeped in the musical philosophy espoused by Ross Dolan of Immolation. However, their wall of sound is inoculated with the foreboding atmosphere reminiscent of Disembowelment. The growth that results is an atypical album within the Canadian Death Metal scene, yet containing all the required components: guttural vocals, thick technical riffs, and blast beats that rival “old” Cryptopsy and Katalysm. What makes it unique is how the dueling vocals are infused with the instrumentation, augmenting the tempo changes, coupled with the lyrics that forsake this mortal coil. Complimented by a massive booklet with occult artwork, this is one release you must own. The impact that Disembowelment’s Transcendence into the Peripheral had almost two decades ago has finally been replicated by Parasignosis.
