Bleed your ears dry to the sounds of The Mother Of Virtues here.
Recorded by Ryan Jones (Today Is The Day, Mutilation Rites) and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice), the nine tracks occupying The Mother Of Virtues takes its listeners on a traumatic sonic voyage into the darkest portals of musical severity. Recommended for perverse souls with a penchant for the audio acuteness of acts like Brutal Truth, Ulcerate, Artificial Brain, Deathspell Omega and Today Is The Day, The Mother Of Virtues offers up a mind-altering synthesis of clanging death, dark jazz rhythms, twisted storytelling and subtle shades of otherworldly psychedelia and is currently raising the eyebrows of critics nationally.
The Mother Of Virtues will be released on CD, LP and digitally in North America via Relapse Records on April 1st, Germany/Finland/Benelux on March 28th and UK/World on March 31st. Preorder your copy here. For iTunes orders, point your browser here.
Vice/Noisey notes, “NYC’s PYRRHON sits alone in the fold between a pair of local giants, Unsane and Suffocation. The band clearly leans on its nerdier than thou technical death metal approach to provide the backbone of what they do, but for some of the breakdowns and parts that surround the fretboard wizardry is a devotion to the noisy, misanthropy found on records by Today Is The Day and most of the early Am-Rep roster. It’s a mix of intelligent hatred that could only come from the five boroughs,” While Last Rites adds, “With The Mother of Virtues, PYRRHON has shed any remaining boundaries. But more than that, they’ve just gone wild. Their unpredictable, laboratorial songs employ death metal only as the basic formula, utilizing deconstruction as a compositional tool, and noise as an invasive texture. While always an accomplished band, the massive leap in maturity here is nothing short of staggering.”
