Pyrrhon is a progressive metal act from New York that incorporates many jazz fusion elements into their sound.

PYRRHON (pronounced "peer-on") is a death metal band from New York City. They formed in 2008 after a chance meeting ona subway platform, and have been honing their increasingly twisted take on the genre ever since.

PYRRHON’s debut EP, FEVER KINGDOMS, was released in October 2010 by The Path Less Traveled records and receivedconsistently laudatory reviews. The EP was recorded and mixed in August 2009 by Dan Pilla at Bad Lab Studios in Tabernacle,NJ and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, Krallice) at The Thousand Caves Studios in Queens, NY.

PYRRHON released their first full-length album, AN EXCELLENT SERVANT BUT A TERRIBLE MASTER, in September 2011 viaSELFMADEGOD RECORDS. The album is a nightmarish blend of clanging death metal with surreal psychedelic elements, jazzrhythms, and delirious storytelling. The album was again engineered by Pilla and mastered by Marston. The cover art andlayout were created by Caroline Harrison. The album received glowing praise from mainstay media outlets such as Decibel,Terrorizer, Invisible Oranges, and MetalSucks.

Over the ensuing two years, PYRRHON logged hundreds of hours in their practice space, laboring feverishly over theirsophomore record. They emerged from this lengthy gestation period with THE MOTHER OF VIRTUES, a daring epic thatexpands radically upon the multifaceted sound established by the band's first LP. THE MOTHER OF VIRTUES was tracked andmixed by Ryan Jones (Today is the Day, Mutilation Rites, Wetnurse); Marston returned once more to mastering duties. Uponhearing THE MOTHER OF VIRTUES, groundbreaking metal label RELAPSE RECORDS signed PYRRHON to a multi-album deal. Thealbum will see a worldwide release in 2014. « hide
