New York City-based experimental and technical death metal quartet, PYRRHON, are back with their latest works, "Growth Without End".
The five-song Growth Without End was recorded and mixed by Ryan Jones (TODAY IS THE DAY, MUTILATION RITES), mastered by Colin Marston (GORGUTS, KRALLICE), and as expected from the talented and lethal PYRRHON, is a total mindfuck, merging bouts of punishing death, super-evil noise rock, twisted math, chaotic and menacing grind. It's kind of like Daughters, Brutal Truth, Merzbow and Autopsy created a batch of catchy-by-reverse-psychology songs, and then promised to never speak of them again. As usual, vocalist Doug Moore brings a wildly varied palate of screams, growls, grunts, howls, barks and spoken power to his ominous, thought-provoking and voyeuristic lyrics that navigate the miasma of sonic insanity the band lays down. It’s clear each member in the band is a virtuoso – skills used not to show off, but to engulf the listener with emotion, power, tasty chaos and passages that will get inside of you, possess you, and bring cathartic, ‘hell yes!’ pleasure and pain to all your musical glands.
Recommended if you like GORGUTS, ULCERATE, MESHUGGAH, DEATH, MISERY INDEX, SUFFOCATION, ATHEIST as well as DEATHSPELL OMEGA, KRALLICE.
This is CD version released on Selfmadegod Records, following its initial vinyl version released May 2015 by Handshake Inc.
"Outré as they get, everything Pyrrhon do emanates from an obsidian death metal core - just that this music is that much more expressive, its impact that much more disquieting than almost anything else in the genre." - Decibel
