Mitochondrion - Biography



Mitochondrion has crafted a crushing twisted death metal sound with often contrasting elements of atmosphere and chaos, technicality and primitiveness, melody and brutality - all the while not allowing themselves to be constrained by any conventions.

Formed in 2003, Mitochondrion have released a self-titled demo as well as a demo entitled Through Cosmic Gaze. Making some adjustments over the years to their line-up, the band eventually earned more of a following with the release of their debut full-length, entitled Archaeaeon, which was released independently.

Following their split with Gyibaaw in 2010, Mitochondrion signed a record deal with Profound Lore for the release of their defining follow-up to Archaeaeon - Parasignosis, which was released in 2011.
