Canada's Mitochondrion to release "Antinumerology" on CD for the very first time via Krucyator Production
Canadian black/death prodigy Mitochondrion released their EP "Antinumerology" via Dark Descent Records back in 2013 on 7'', Krucyator Productions will be releasing The EP for the very first time in CD format on 26th July. It will also be released through all of the major digital platforms.
The state within the current landscape of modern death metal has not shown its promise in what seems like ages. Mitochondrion has helped signal a paradigm shift destined to bring awareness to where the elite sanctions within the Canadian extreme metal scene now reside. Initially hailing from the city adjacent to the infamous Ross Bay cemetery, Mitochondrion made quite an impression within the death metal underground with their self-released,“Archaeaeon” debut in 2008. The band introduced the death metal world to their brand of time-stretching, vitriolic, complex, brutal ambient sound. Inevitably, they would gain the reputation as one of Canada’s most devastating and creative death metal bands today with the release of “Parasignosis” in 2011, and "Antinumerology" in 2013, initially released on 7", now released on CD by Krucyator Productions.

Croatian mavericks of the trance-like black craft are back with the reminder of what have become the cornerstone of their discography and easily one of the most unique extreme releases of the 2010s. Watch out for the re-release of their seminal second album on Arachnophobia Records.
With two EP releases, and three full-length albums that wiped the boundaries of the black metal genre and brought the band to a firm and clear position at the crossroads of avant-garde, psychedelia, primitive trance-inducing blackness, and a modern approach devoid of limitations under their belts, Pogavranjen, Croatia’s by far most prominent black metal band, are about to remind their audience about their second titanic escapade.
On “Sebi Jesi Meni Nisi”, the trademark sound of the band evolved into something truly terrifying. Its re-release will see the light of day and dead of night this fall.
Veterans of Croatian extreme music use primordial negativity and blackness of bleak modern existence to painfully stomp a 42 minute long march through wastelands of rancid psyche fuelled by complete lack of hope. Through disgust and bewildering bestiality, Pogavranjen present the dawn of a new era of originality by painting the blackest of landscapes.
While being endlessly negative, ugly and malevolent, “Sebi Jesi Meni Nisi” strikes with its progressive and meditative elements. It is an album which emanates a macabre deathly glow, as well as ambitious freshness. Its visionary construction and virtuoso musicianship echo through the avant-garde black metal underground.
