With the official unleashing of PYRRHON‘s new album The Mother Of Virtues now just two weeks away, today Vice/Noisey is waging war on the ears of the willing with “Invisible Injury.” The track is an exploratory mind fuck of broken chords, warring vocal tirades, and hurt feelings; it encompasses pure evil.
Embrace the hate here.
New York City’s progressive death metal newcomers PYRRHON (pronounced peer-on) emerge from the urban decay with a nightmarish offering of cerebral, extreme metal. The Mother of Virtues is a mind bending merger of clanging death metal, surreal psychedelia, dark jazz rhythms and delirious storytelling. Recorded with Ryan Jones (Today is the Day, Mutilation Rites) and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice), The Mother of Virtues takes the listener on a harrowing journey into the darkest corners of musical extremity.
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/Europe/World on March 31st. Preorder your copy here.
Comments Noisey: “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.”
Additionally, you can still try your ears at the title track, currently deafening the weak courtesy of MetalSucks here as well as teaser track “Balkanized,” currently streaming here.
