Finally unveiling the cover for the beast over a year after it was crafted. All bias aside, this is likely to be one of the best releases of 2011. The CD will be out January 2011 via Profound Lore. LP later via another, new label. Check out the song 'Trials' HERE.
UPDATE - Press release from Profound Lore:
Canadian death metal plague bearers MITOCHONDRION have completed work on their new album “Parasignosis”.
Making quite an impression and becoming a force within the death metal underground with their self-released now out of print “Archaeaeon” debut, where the band introduced the death metal world with their brand of time-stretching vitriolic complex brutal ambient death metal. The band would inevitably gain the reputation as one of Canada’s most devastating and creative death metal bands today. And since the state within the current landscape of Canadian death metal today hasn’t really shown its promise in what seems like ages, MITOCHONDRION (who initially hailed from the area that encases the infamous Ross Bay cemetery) would begin to help signal a paradigm shift where, along with their fellow comrades in the elite Canadian Satanic death/black metal band Weapon, would in-turn help lead a movement destined to bring awareness to where the new elite sanctions within the Canadian extreme metal scene now lie.
Meticulously planned, initiated, and constructed in the most obsessive of manners over the last several years, “Parasignosis” is epic death metal chaos manifested. Taking the sound heard on “Archaeaeon” and thrusting it into a more twisted, ambient and psychedelic avant-garde realm, “Parasignosis” is a true manifestation that will align MITOCHONDRION alongside the elite of today’s death metal movement. Nonetheless, the nature of “Parasignosis” is a grand movement where each segment within it stitches itself together to present the album’s grand cyclical scheme; a total maelstrom of unrelenting death metal terror.
To be released January of 2011, tracklisting for “Parasignosis” goes as follows:
1. Plague Evockation (Pestilentiam Intus Vocamus, Voluntatem Absolvimus Part I)
2. Lex Ego Exitium (Pestilentiam Intus Vocamus, Voluntatem Absolvimus Part II)
3. Tetravirulence (Pestilentiam Intus Vocamus, Voluntatem Absolvimus Part III)
7. Banishment (Undecaphosphoric)
11. Ambient Outro
