Decibel offered of The Becoming , “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… Over fourteen tracks, it’s possible to hear REDEMPTOR evolve into the mechanical, crushing band they are today.”
