Pyrrhon Unveils New Album

Continuing to shapeshift while using unorthodox songwriting techniques that border on the incomprehensible, avant-garde extreme metal quartet Pyrrhon returns with "What Passes For Survival," due out August 8th.

Throatruiner Records comments: "Dense, volatile, and drenched in manic ferocity, 'What Passes For Survival' is an aural challenge that refuses to adhere to genre conventions, merging strategic orchestrated bursts of death metal chaos with expanses of unhinged improvisation.

"The latest stage of Pyrrhon's metamorphosis is one that demands repeated audio submersion from the listener, and satisfies those craving sonic extremity that pushes limits. Recorded live, mixed, and mastered by Colin Marston at The Thousand Caves, the album features artwork by Caroline Harrison."

Pyrrhon To Release New Album

Experimental new York death metal band Pyrrhon (pronounced "peer-on”) has partnered up with Willowtip Records (North America) and Throatruiner (Europe) to release new material. Vocalist Doug Moore comments:

"We're absolutely thrilled to be working with these two fantastic labels, as clichéd as that might be. Willowtip has been the foremost name in weirdo death metal mutations since we were all in middle school, and Throatruiner has become one of the world's best purveyors of unclassifiable heaviness in recent years. Both have released work by many past and current band favorites, and we look forward to delivering our strongest work yet (another cliché, but true!) amid such excellent company."

The band is set to enter Thousand Caves studio in Queens, NY with engineer Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Dysrhythmia) to begin tracking a 3rd full-length album slated for a late 2017 release. More...

Pyrrhon Recruits New Drummer

Pyrrhon has parted ways with founding drummer Alex Cohen, who has been replaced by new blood Steve Schwegler.

Vocalist Doug Moore and Schwegler also have a death/black metal band called Seputus that goes all the way back to 2005. Long spells of inactivity in recent years with that band will come to an end with a brand new Seputus album, fully written by Schwegler. The lineup for that group now includes Pyrrhon bassist Erik Malave (Imperial Triumphant, Artificial Brain live), uniting 3/4 of the current Pyrrhon lineup.

Pyrrhon Releasing "Growth Without End"

The five-song "Growth Without End" was recorded and mixed by Ryan Jones, mastered by Colin Marston, and is a total mindfuck, merging bouts of punishing death, super-evil noise rock, twisted math, and chaotic and menacing grind. Experience the chaos with "Cancer Mantra" below.

"Growth Without End" is set for October 1, 2015 release date on CD. Stand by for preorders. PYRRHON has also booked a new hometown show: More...

Pyrrhon Dropped From Relapse

Pyrrhon has checked in with the following announcement about departing Relapse Records and gearing up to release an EP:

"The bad news is that Relapse Records have terminated their contract with Pyrrhon and will not be working on our next LP.

"The given reason for their decision was that 'The Mother of Virtues' has not proven commercially successful, which will surely come as a major shock to anyone who’s heard it. Our split with Relapse will not affect our upcoming European tour plans next month.

"The good news: we will release 'Growth Without End,' a new EP, on June 2nd, 2015. That’s the cover art you’re looking at. Written and recorded in the aftermath of the TMoV sessions, and handled by the same team (Ryan Jones on tracking/mixing; Colin Marston on mastering; Caroline Harrison on art/layout), it is our fastest, scabbiest material to date. 'Growth Without End' will come out on vinyl & digital via Handshake Inc., whom you may know through their great work with the likes of Gridlink, Rwake, Sulaco, and Couch Slut.

"We will be joining another Handshake band for a limited number of out-of-town live appearances in support of the EP before commencing work on our next batch of material. Dates & details TBA."

The EP's track listing is:

1. Cancer Mantra
2. Forget Yourself
3. The Mass
4. Viral Content

SXSW 2014 Day Two: Relapse Records, Monte Pittman

SXSW can be an overwhelming endeavor. From word-of-mouth parties and secret performances to unofficial day shows that the festival doesn't promote, planning takes more than cursory glances. After last year's exhaustive outing, I learned a lesson: keep it simple (stupid) and don't over plan. One best experiences South By Southwest by staying in a downtown hotel and taking pedicabs (or real car cabs depending on the extent of travel). For only $2 a day, a bus is the way to go for Austinites, as long as they're not staying past midnight. More...

Pyrrhon Streaming Album's Title Track

The experimental death metal perpetrators in New York City's Pyrrhon (pronounced peer-on) are pleased to soil ears with the title track from their forthcoming new long player, "The Mother Of Virtues," due out April 1st. Give it a listen below, courtesy of MetalSucks.net.

Comments vocalist Doug Moore of the title track: "I've seen some people say that we aren't 'really' a death metal band, and this song is pretty good evidence in favor of that claim. It's also one of the more ambitious songs we've ever recorded, structurally speaking. Good luck."
