Archspire exploded onto the scene in the year 2009 – after an earlier prelude under the moniker Defenestrated. The band grew out of the rich Canadian scene for technical extremes that includes names such as Gorguts and Beyond Creation. Yet Archspire set out to take the sound to the next level from the start as their 2011 debut album All Shall Align made clear, receiving critical comparison with the scene’s spearheads like Obscura.
The band developed a lyrical concept revolving around a dystopian science fiction universe, which was expanded on their second full-length, 2014’s The Lucid Collective, an album that saw the band gain widespread international recognition as one of the hottest names within the tech death community and beyond. With Relentless Mutation, the Canadians push the limits of their genre even further than before.
The cover of Relentless Mutation was been painted by renowned artist Eliran Kantor – already well-known in the metal world for his works for Testament, Atheist, and Hate Eternal, among others. Recording, mixing and mastering duties were handled by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio.
