Decibel is hosting an exclusive advance stream of The Becoming [2005-2011], the feature including commentary from the band dissecting each era represented in the disc. The mag states of the album, “Polish technical death metal unit REDEMPTOR have spent the last (almost) two decades dropping mind-melting, heavy, technical death metal. Dissonance, technical proficiency and Meshuggah levels of heaviness have always been their greatest weapons, and now their early works have been reanimated in The Becoming, a collection of songs that spans the band’s activity from 2005 to 2011. Over fourteen tracks, it’s possible to hear REDEMPTOR evolve into the mechanical, crushing band they are today.”
