Boston technical death metal strategists, PILLORY, today unleash their brand new video for “Imbeciles In Defiance.” The tune comes by way of their punishing Evolutionary Miscarriage full-length, released earlier this year via Unique Leader Records.
Written, recorded and produced by founding drummer Darren Cesca (Arsis, Burn in Silence, Goratory et al) at his newly-launched House Of Grind Studios in Connecticut during 2013, PILLORY’s Evolutionary Miscarriage is centered thematically around the de-evolution of mankind. A physically and mentally consuming sound excursion, Evolutionary Miscarriage brandishes deranged rhythms, maniacal riff onslaughts, subtle white noise nuances and multi-layered vocals all executed together with near surgical meticulousness, the record’s sharp production allowing each lacerating note to shine while retaining the blunt brutality of its predecessor, No Life Guard At The Gene Pool. Accurately describes Metal Forces, “Album number two offers eleven quizzical cuts that refuse to rest on any laurels, but instead one moment race with a frenzy only to pulverize with perplexing dryness and inaccessible pattern shifts. It belongs in the same algae-ridden corner of space once carved out by the likes of Pestilence, then Cynic, and onto Gorguts, Necrophagist, Origin etc., but it’s only real similarity to these heavyweights is its ability to bewilder and jolt the bones so that they crumble under the sheer force of the unpredictable twists and turns.”
