PYRRHON Announces North American Live Assault; Play-Through Video Posted At Gear Gods

NYC experimental death metal henchmen, PYRRHON, have announced a North American run of live dates alongside fellow exploratry tech-death wizards Gigan and Artificial Brain. The Metal Sucks-sponsored takeover is set to kick off on September 11th in Cleveland, Ohio and run through October 17th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Elaborates PYRRHON, “We’ve been a band for about six years, so it’s incredibly exciting for us to finally embark on such an extensive tour. We’ll be visiting a ton of locales we’ve never played before, and we can’t imagine a more fitting pair of fellow touring bands to make the trek with. See you soon, North America.”

Additionally, the quartet recently unleashed a play-through video for the track “Balkanized” via Gear Gods. Watch the band play along to the twisted composition at THIS LOCATION.

Recorded by Ryan Jones (Mutilation Rites) and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice), the nine tracks occupying PYRRHON‘s The Mother Of Virtues take 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. Stream the album in full via BandCamp HERE and pick up the album via Relapse HERE and iTunes HERE.

“Delightfully off-kilter and forever twisting, PYRRHON conjure some truly twisted riffs and a sickening atmosphere alongside it. It’s basically the audio equivalent of that truly terrifying [cover] art.” – HeavyBlogIsHeavy

“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…” — Vice/Noisey

“…an interesting and audacious record…” – Pitchfork

“It simply flies in the face of traditional death metal and extreme metal and plays by its own rules and has its own unique sound and it manages to still push things to the limits of extremity.” – New Noise
