Pyrrhon - An Excellent Servant But A Terrible Master (2011)


"Pyrrhon are a experimental technical death metal band from New York."

I can't even... HOW DO I HOLD ALL THESE AVANT-GARDE? Haha. I'm just getting away from all of this OH MY GOD OSAMA BIN LADEN IS DEAD bullshit that's going on. Seriously, I saw a "OBAMA IS ANNOUNCING SOMETHING IMPORTANT!" status followed ten seconds later by a thousand updates "OSAMA IS DEAD!!!!" and shit. It's bad enough that they're Canadian and don't know shit about American politics but I don't really understand why it's a big deal to them. Hell, I'm American and I couldn't care less. ARRRRRRRRGH! Just fucking aggravating. Oh well. That's what I get for having 500+ "friends" on facebook I suppose. ANYWAYS, enough ranting about that bullshit and lets move onto this incredible fucking band shall we? I originally found them through Hammer Smashed Sound blogspot after the owner showed me their bandcamp. He said he didn't listen to much death metal but said he really liked this album. So, judging by his words that could mean it was really off the wall insanely good or just a pile of shit that has been purified and blended into a drink for me to vomit up but fortunately it was the first of the two. I couldn't help but think G TO THE O TO THE R TO THE G TO THE U TO THE T TO THE S when checking them out on bandcamp. Seriously though, 30 seconds into the first song and it has Gorguts and Discordance Axis written all over it. I went to go "like" it on facebook and noticed Humanity Falls, an experimental death metal band who plays in the style of Discordance Axis "liked" them as well so I knew I was up the same alley when comparing these two bands. I was chatting with a few of mine and he kept calling them Disgordance Axguts which was making me laugh and then compared them to Deathspell Omega, which is actually a relative comparison. Sure, they may not be a black metal band or whatever but if you take away all the other elements and just leave the guitar I'd say they're pretty accurate in a sense of sounding like one another. With all of that being said, you should know what you're getting yourself into. Pyrrhon are one of this indescribable bands that would end up sounding like shit if a pleb like my tried to explain them with my unfeesable vocabulary  so I'll let you discover them for yourself.
