Answer this question and win a FREE copy of Mitochondrion’s reissued Antinumerology


Just a few months ago, our good pal Loic of Krucyator Productions announced that Canadian death machine Mitochondrion‘s ball-crushing, spirit-draining 2013 EP, Antinumerology, was getting the reissue treatment. Today, I’m pleased as punch to give you a chance to own this nasty bit of business on CD, totally free. All you have to do is answer me one question.

We all know the mitochondrion is the powerhouse of the cell, but what about these other guys? Does the flagellum get you feeling frisky? Does the stress granule create the perfect DSBM atmosphere? Are you crazy for membrane solos? What really gets you globin?

What is the most metal cellular organelle, and why?

Just leave your answers in the comments, and I’ll pick one winner to send a sealed copy of Antinumerology, courtesy of Krucyator.


If you aren’t clever enough to make microbiology jokes, consider this your chance to revisit a killer EP from one of the best Canadian extreme metal bands. It’s got everything you want in death metal and more! Killer riffs! Oppressive atmosphere! Horrifying growls! Mind-bending drums! Occult wizardry! Antinumerology is Mitochondrion distilled to a lethal, toxic dose, and it remains a critical piece in the band’s highly acclaimed discography.

If you want to buy your own copy, do so at Krucyator’s Bandcamp page here. Many thanks to Loic for the prize, and keep your eyes open for new music from Mitochondrion soon.

  • Why, the cytoskeletonwitch is the most metal organelle, duh.

    • Lord of Bork

      Just ask this Scientician!

  • KJM, Anla’Shok

    I know that the crux of the biscuit is in the apostrophe, but that’s about it.
    Also a new Monolord song

  • Brutalist_Receptacle

    Les légions noire: Liquide testiculaire

    I know the least metal Cellular organelle is the acrosome, cuz it helps the spermatozoa fuse with the ovum and, though self-explanatory, everyone into this “metal” thing that you’ve linked up there is definitely an basement-dwelling virginosome.

    Incidentally Virginosome may just be the most metal cellular organelle on grounds of making up to 86% of your aveage metalheads cellular structure.

    • Dubby Fresh

      Ah, the incell organelle.

  • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

    The autophagosome is easily the most metal organelle, for the role it plays in autophagy, a form of programmed cell death. In other words, this thing helps the cell kill itself. Also, Autophagy would be a killer death metal band name

    “…Canadian death machine Mitochondrion‘s ball-crushing, spirit-draining 2013 EP…”

    Uh, I believe I ordered the music that is spirit-crushing and ball-draining, but I digress.

    • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

      “Spirit-crushing and ball-draining”

      You just described 90% of the strip clubs in my town

      • Dubby Fresh

        *any town. and 99%

  • Has to be the Nucleus. Already has its own Metal Archives entry:

  • Mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell.

    Fucking nailed it.

    • Dubby Fresh

      You deserve a spanking.

  • atchdav

    The Golgi Apparatus, a sadistic device responsible for unspeakable suffering, is undoubtedly the most metal of all cell organelles.

  • Hans

    Surely it must be the cnidocyst. This sucker is responsible for producing a toxin that is housed in a stinger and shot into the organism’s prey with a force of some 40,000 g so that it can be devoured. The cell that does this is also know as a cnidoblast, plus you probably don’t quite know how to pronounce “cnidocyst”, which already makes it pretty metal.

  • Eva Wyzga

    Of course *mitochondria* The main function is production of energy, however mitochondria are involved in other tasks such as *apoptosis* – the proces of programmed cell death. Nothing more kvlt than that!


  • The vacuole of hyperaccumulator plants have high concentrations of HEAVY METALS (yes, all caps is the most scientific way to write it, trust me). If that’s not METAL I don’t know what it.
