NYC extreme metallers Pyrrhon have released their earth shattering new full length Abscess Time via Willowtip. Some how they defy and embrace death at the same time. This is some of their most impressive technical and vivid songwriting yet. “Human Capital” is one of the most timely and savage songs of 2o2o in experimental death metal with killer lyrics about modern class inhumanity.

Throughout the entirety of Abscess Time, PYRRHON explore the turbulent and ripping darkness of everyday survival. “This album is about watching the human world slowly slide towards collapse while you’re too busy trying to survive until the next day to do anything about it,” comments PYRRHON vocalist Doug Moore. “The process seems to take forever, even though little things change every day. And since you’re constantly straining to keep your head above water, it’s all just the background against a foreground of more immediate dangers.”

PYRRHON entered Menegroth: The Thousand Caves studio in January 2020 with mastermind engineer, Colin Marston (Krallice, Gorguts, Dysrhythmia) at the helm. “Colin Marston has worked on every Pyrrhon record so far – he’s mastered all of them, and mixed our last three. We do a pretty unusual combination of things during our recording process, and he’s about the only engineer out there who’s got experience with all of them,” explains Moore.

About Abscess Time, PYRRHON vocalist Doug Moore comments:
“The album is about watching the human world slowly slide towards collapse while you’re too busy trying to survive until the next day to do anything about it. The process seems to take forever, even though little things change every day. And since you’re constantly straining to keep your head above water, it’s all just the background against a foreground of more immediate dangers. Humans can adapt to anything, so fool yourself into thinking it can last forever – but then, one day, the boil bursts.”

PYRRHON have released a new track off Abscess Time titled, ‘Another Day In Paradise’ alongside a long form interview with the band. The track and interview are up now at Decibel Magazine. I am loving the performances, especially the cutting Steve Schwegler cymbals and general drum madness. Any of their releases slay but this new tune makes the latest offering seem VERY promising and a welcome distraction right now.

PYRRHON is one of those bands that I love but whom for whatever reason I haven’t written enough about. Then I postponed writing about them out of guilt, haha. This is what happens when you blog too much. Kind of like years ago how I loved the first Pavement indie rock album so much I was afraid the rest would let me down, I heard some PYRRHON awhile back and was like, “daaaamn, son.” Then I hid from them in a medicated stupor. Afraid that I was drawn to this madness. But it is a liberating and necessary madness. “Turing’s Revenge” is nothing short of music as liberation.

Suffice to say, I am an idiot. Or maybe I didn’t want the world to end from their manic, psycho death metal spreading like an untamed virus.

Well, whatever. I guess I just don’t like the human race enough anymore to protect them or want to support the band better. It was a real drag they were dropped from Relapse after releasing The Mother of Virtues, a freak fest that actual schizophrenia, Gigan or true crime fans might understand but other people who cling to the death metal of yesteryear might just be ripped apart by. It perhaps didn’t help that the record had a sort of pregnant looking female creature on the cover with eyeballs and bugs swarming all over it. Like this one Trap Them t shirt on either Shirts and Destroy or Shirtkiller that no one ever buys that has a strangled baby on the shirt, it’s probably not gonna sell as much as the new 5 Seconds of Summer t shirt or some bubblegum crap.

Let’s face it. People have horrible taste (dead baby Trap Them shirt aside, cuz even I thought that was a pretty hideous design and I revere that band).
But I mean, people like gaudy, ugly, tacky horrible bands and their stupid neon designs and fake stories and fame pandering.

PYRRHON don’t do that stuff. They tour hard and hustle and write real music. They are almost apologetic when a press release describes their new EP as ,
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.

They forgot to mention how “Viral Content” is like a sand paper condom skullfuck while Scratch Acid and Cephalic Carnage party like rockstars around a bonfire of melted, previously boned and discarded skulls.

SO what I’m saying is, please don’t let this band go away. Go stream their newish EP Growth Without End, the best thing they’ve perhaps done yet (although as an Invisibles fan I’m still partial to their old song “King of All Tears”. I get scared just thinking that name. But new jam  “Forget Yourself” is as brilliant as death spazz grind gets, barely contained chaos.
