Aaron Lee This album really turned some heads (or rather, snapped some necks) when it came out in 2011. Warped, vile blackened death metal reminiscent of Portal.

Tyler Belisle Crazily evil death metal packaged behind choking atmosphere. An album that is truly both "technical" and crushing at the same time, the musicianship of Mitochondrion is insane, and they're one of the most underrated bands around today. Favorite track: Lex Ego Exitium (Pestilentiam Intus Vocamus, Voluntatem Absolvimus Part II).

Michael Hojjatie These guys are nuts. A good kind of nuts. Pummeling Canadian death metal from the best scene going today! Favorite track: Rift/Apex.

Meticulously and obsessively pieced together over a period spanning several years, “Parasignosis” takes the sound MITOCHONDRION formulated on their “Archaeaeon” debut and stretches it even further through an infinite sonic vacuum of cosmic death metal horror. Through its flowing and cyclical nature, “Parasignosis” is a death metal album that summons a dark and sinister atmosphere like no other. An album that creates otherworldly ambience through the vast layers of intricately placed sounds formulated through a multitude of sonic textures that help to create one of the most brutal, chaotic, psychedelic, and most challenging and overwhelming death metal albums of our time. Even though “Parasignosis” can be quite the exhausting listen, its overbearing and suffocating nature is what makes such an album a unique all-encompassing overpowering listening experience.

Featuring stunning artwork created by Alexander Brown.
