Axis Mutatis is an album by electronic music group The Shamen which was released in 1995. The album didn't receive as much positive feedback as their previous album, Boss Drum or was as popular as it, but Axis Mutatis still remained a fairly successful release, with the band eventually releasing four music videos for it. A Deep Dish remix of "Transamazonia" appeared on the WipEout soundtrack.

The initial release of Axis Mutatis contained an additional instrumental album, Arbor Bona Arbor Mala.
