Pyrrhon are a band from New York that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style i would describe as being brutal, progressive and technical sounding death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "The Mother of Virtues" which will be released by Relapse Records.
The album starts out with a very fast, heavy, brutal and technical sound along with blast beats, screams and growls as well as bringing in a mixture of mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
As the album progresses the music gets more progressive and experimental while not straying too far away from their brutal sound and they seem to have a little bit more black metal influences this time around and at times they also bring in clean playing along with a great amount of psychedelic and jazz elements and they also bring in a great amount of guitar solos and leads on this recording and at time s the vocals also having an aggressive industrial/noise rock feeling to them.
With this album Pyrrhon get a lot more progressive and experimental with their music while still keeping around their death metal roots and I would considering this recording as being psychedelic, technical death metal.
Song lyrics cover dark and demented storytelling, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording as well as some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Pyrrhon and if you are a fan of progressive death metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "White Flag" "Eternity In A Breath" "Invisible Injury" and "The Mother Of Virtues". 8 out of 10.
