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.

New York extreme death metal mental gymnasts (in a good way) PYRRHON have big news, a new full length called Abscess Time due this year. Abscess Time will be released on double LP – with a vinyl exclusive D-side bonus track, compact disc, and on all digital platforms on June 26, 2020. Physical pre-order is available today via Willowtip HERE and digital can be found HERE.

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.

Interview: Gigan – Technical Ecstasy Death Trip

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Saturday, May 14, 2011 at 9:36 PM (PST)

Tech-death psychic riff innovators GIGAN are back with the much-anticipated follow up to their debut (2008’s THE ORDER OF THE FALSE EYE). The latest from the Chicago based mind-benders is aptly entitled QUASI-HALLUCINOGENIC SONIC LANDSCAPES (on the well respected Willowtip Records) and features songs like “Fathomless Echoes Of Eternities Imagination” and “Mountains Perched Like Beasts Awaiting The Attack”. Suffice to say…it aint boring and cookie cutter bozo metal! GIGAN once again worked with Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Minsk) to craft a must hear monster.

Album Review: Macabre – “Grim Scary Tales”

Posted by Allred on Wednesday, March 30, 2011 at 5:27 PM (PST)

Macabre, Illinois’ own murder metal specialists, are back! After a near eight year gap, Macabre return with their latest platter of nursery rhyme fueled, death soaked tales of true life. “Grim Scary Tales”, an obvious play on Grimm’s Fairy Tales, is the band’s fifth full length album and is fourteen tracks of what we have come to know and love from the trio of Corporate Death (guitar, vocals), Nefarious(bass), and Dennis the Menace(drums). While I will admit Macabre can be a bit of an acquired taste and what others deem to be an uneven or inconsistent song flow, I see something else. I know of few bands who after twenty-five plus years and no line up changes can release a myriad of different songs on an album and still retain their sound, while sounding fresh and overall keeping things metal, even when some of the tracks on “Grim Scary Tales” aren’t metal at all (i.e. “Mary Ann” & “The Bloody Benders”).

Read the full review here.

Chicago’s extreme metal band Macabre announced a European headlining tour set for April 2011. This four-week trip will kick-off on April 15th and includes a performance at Neurotic Deathfest on April 30th in Tilburg, Netherlands. Touring alongside Macabre are Dutch Rompeprop and an additional, soon to be announced, special guest band. For a listing of Macabre tour dates click here, with more to be announced soon.

Macabre is touring in support of their recently released full-length album “Grim Scary Tales” released via Willowtip Records in the U.S. on February 8th, 2011, which marked the band’s 25th anniversary and return in the original line-up.
