'Relentless Mutation' was hailed as "monstrous musical dexterity... Nice to see someone carrying the torch for the particularly mathematic metal that Vancouver acts such as Strapping Young Lad once laid down. Intense." (The Vancouver Sun), and "unorthodox and experimental...with layers of mesmerizing dynamics that enhance their unique sound." (Exclaim) 'Relentless Mutation' is streaming below:
