Pyrrhon Comments On Joining Relapse To Release "The Mother Of Virtues"

Relapse Records is extremely proud to announce the signing of New York City avant-garde, technical death metal quartet Pyrrhon (pronounced "peer-on").

Formed in 2008, Pyrrhon (Dylan DiLella - guitar, Erik Malave - bass, Alex Cohen - drums, Doug Moore - vocals) has released one EP ("Fever Kingdoms" - 2010) and one LP ("An Excellent Servant But a Terrible Master" - 2011, available for streaming below) via The Path Less Traveled Records and Selfmadegod Records respectively.

Relapse will release the band's upcoming sophomore album titled "The Mother of Virtues" in early 2014. The label comments:

"A nightmarish blend of clanging death metal with surreal psychedelic elements, jazz rhythms, and delirious storytelling, The Mother of Virtues was tracked and mixed by Ryan Jones (Today is the Day, Mutilation Rites, Wetnurse) at Saint Vitus Bar and The Sound City, Brooklyn in May and June 2013. The record was then mastered by Colin Marston (Krallice, Gorguts) at The Thousand Caves Studios, Brooklyn, in August 2013. More album details will be revealed shortly."

Vocalist Doug Moore also commented on the signing: "When I was 15, I bought a copy of Relapse's Contaminated 5.0 sampler CD. Through it, I encountered Suffocation, Neurosis, Pig Destroyer, Human Remains, and countless other great bands for the first time. We are thrilled and honored to work with a label whose output has done so much to drive metal forward, and which has meant so much to all four of us over the years."
