ARCHSPIRE are touring in support of their new album, 'Relentless Mutation'. An all-new blast of supreme technical death metal, 'Relentless Mutation' is the sound of truly extreme metal colliding with the future at warp speed. The album showcases "a band with a perfect sound somehow evolving and becoming even more perfect. By taking most of what worked on The Lucid Collective, adding new flavors to it and just doing it plain old better, Archspire have topped themselves in a way that’s seemingly impossible" (Heavy Blog is Heavy) and "more than suffice(s) to fully cement the band’s status as one of the finest (and fastest) examples of the modern Tech Death scene." (No Clean Singing).

Vancouver's ARCHSPIRE return with 'Relentless Mutation', an all-new blast of supreme technical death metal. 'Relentless Mutation' is the sound of truly extreme metal colliding with the future at warp speed. Dizzying guitar and bass acrobatics and gonzoid drum blasting carve through the savagery with surgical precision, while rapid fire vocals attack at inhuman speeds. The complexity and fluidity of the compositions is astonishing, and sees the ascendant band truly come into their own. 'Relentless Mutation' is The death metal record of 2017, and sees ARCHSPIRE emerge as one of the genre's apex predators.
