Relapse Records has announced the signing of New York City avant-garde, technical death metal quartet PYRRHON (pronounced “peer-on”). The band’s sophomore album, “The Mother Of Virtues’, will be released in early 2014.

Formed in 2008, PYRRHON released one EP (“Fever Kingdoms”, 2010) and one LP (“An Excellent Servant But a Terrible Master”, 2011) via The Path Less Traveled Records and Selfmadegod Records, respectively.

A nightmarish blend of clanging death metal with surreal psychedelic elements, jazz rhythms, and delirious storytelling, “The Mother Of Virtues” was tracked and mixed by Ryan Jones (TODAY IS THE DAY, MUTILATION RITES, WETNURSE) at Saint Vitus Bar and The Sound City in Brooklyn in May and June 2013. The record was then mastered by Colin Marston (KRALLICE, GORGUTS) at The Thousand Caves Studios in Brooklyn in August 2013.

Vocalist Doug Moore commented on the signing: “When I was 15, I bought a copy of Relapse‘s ‘Contaminated 5.0’ sampler CD. Through it, I encountered SUFFOCATION, NEUROSIS, PIG DESTROYER, HUMAN REMAINS, and countless other great bands for the first time.

“We are thrilled and honored to work with a label whose output has done so much to drive metal forward, and which has meant so much to all four of us over the years.”

PYRRHON quickly became known for its mind-bending live show, playing with such notable acts as MISERY INDEX, HATE ETERNAL, ORIGIN, TOMBS, LITURGY, CANNABIS CORPSE, BEHOLD THE ARCTOPUS and INTER ARMA.

Danish old-school death metallers INBREEDING REDNECKS — who consist of experienced metal musicians from bands like AUTUMN LEAVES, MEMORIAL, FRAMELESS SCAR and MERCENARY — will release their debut album, “Abnormal Life Portrayed”, on October 14 via Mighty Music/Target. The CD was recorded at CB Studios by Christian Bonde (DAWN OF DEMISE) and was mixed by Sebastian Wolff from KELLERMENSCH.

INBREEDING REDNECKS has roots in the seaport Esbjerg and is inspired by “old-school” metal and therefore attaches great importance to those areas are the prominent elements of music. Bands like SUFFOCATION, MORBID ANGEL and HYPOCRISY are the source of inspiration as well as modern metallers like GOJIRA, among others.

INBREEDING REDNECKS writes about critical events in society, which are characterized by everyday frustrations and supports it with the brutality of death metal. This universe consists of an equally brutal instrumentation — ’90s-inspired growl vocals are delivered in a convincing manner, a high technical level on the drums and lyrics with a clear-cut message. The riffs are written with consideration to the simple and harmonious.

The band pays homage to the old way of making albums, but has found its own way to make it work in today’s metal world. With these elements in focus, the band knows that the messages will strike the listener as hard as the songs suggests.

“Abnormal Life Portrayed” track listing:

01. World Of Haste
02. An Observation
03. Eyes Of Deception
04. The Grand Misconception
05. Wilted Flowers
06. Defeated Demons?
07. Division Wreckage
08. Misery The Agenda
09. The Law Of Man Betrayed


Thue Schmidt – Guitar
Brian Jakobsen – Guitar
Peter Mathiesen – Drums
Rune Sinnbeck – Bass
Torsten Madsen – Vocals

New York death metal veterans SKINLESS have reformed after a two-year hiatus to headline the third day of Delaware Deathfest this October alongside DEICIDE, SUFFOCATION, BROKEN HOPE, BRUTALITY, DYING FETUS, EXHUMED and many more. The second annual Delaware Deathfest takes place October 4-6 in Wilmington at Mojo 13.

Commented vocalist Sherwood Webber: “We’re back. The classic SKINLESS lineup has always had an undeniable live chemistry and it’s time to unleash the beast again. We’re all old buddies and if we have the opportunity to destroy some stages around the world again, it feels right…. who knows what’s next?!? In keeping with the old SKINLESS credo of not giving a fuck… we’re back to destroy…. we can’t let EXHUMED have ALL the fun!

“Also… if you ever told me that we’d be playing with BRUTALITY when I was 15 years old listening to the ‘Screams Of Anguish’ tape in Noah’s Camaro, I would never have believed it. This is awesome!!!!”

Added guitarist Noah Carpenter: “This is the lineup that put SKINLESS on the metal map, so it’s great to be back. We won’t be the road dogs of the past, but we’ll be playing some select festivals and drinking all their beer. So sit back, slip on your absorbent undergarments, and let the mayhem begin… again!!!”
