Pyrrhon album set for release; new song online

Official press release: New York City progressive death metal collective and recent Relapse Records signees, Pyrrhon (pronounced peer-on), emerge from the urban decay with a nightmarish offering of physically and psychologically mauling extreme metal. Titled The Mother Of Virtues, the band's sophomore full-length is a mind-bending fusion 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 nine tracks comprising The Mother Of Virtues takes its listener on a harrowing journey into the darkest corners of musical severity. Recommended for demented souls who worship at the altars of Gorguts, Ulcerate, Cryptopsy, Portal, Deathspell Omega, Today Is The Day and the like. Elaborates vocalist Doug Moore: "We focused on capturing an organic, spontaneous sound on this album. Consequently, we tracked most of the album live; most of its quieter moments and solo breaks are partially or entirely improvised. We like to let the chips fall where they may." Sear your ears with teaser track "Balkanized," currently streaming here: The Mother Of Virtues track listing: 1. The Oracle of Nassau 2. White Flag 3. Sleeper Agent 4. Balkanized 5. Eternity in a Breath 6. Implant Fever 7. Invisible Injury 8. The Parasite in Winter 9. The Mother of Virtues The follow up to 2011's critically-adored An Excellent Servant But A Terrible Master, The Mother Of Virtues will be unleashed on CD, LP and digitally in North America via Relapse Records on April 1st, Germany/Finland/Benelux on March 28th and UK/World on March 31st.
