Hey you! Do you want really nasty, noisy, grindy technical death metal? Because, wow, do we have something for you. Experimental techdeath extraordinaires Pyrrhon have put their new EP, Growth Without End, up to stream on bandcamp. And man, are these guys crazy. With a musical ethos that bridges the disparate ends of grindcore and technical death metal, fusing Napalm Death with Gorguts into quite possibly the world’s most eclectic, not to mention heaviest, sound, Pyrrhon are a dark cloud of insanity captured in sonic form.

Listening to Growth Without End, it’s honestly hard to discern what’s what at first, but such is the nature of the band. From the intro of the first track, “Cancer Mantra”, with its bombastic and hectic opening, through the whole EP, the music spins and whirls down like a spiral to some forgotten level of Hell. Pyrrhon clearly knows how to make craziness work, because for something so bizarre and non-straightforward, it’s not actually that difficult to follow: they make sense from the nonsensical, order from chaos. It’s powerful, angry music, and it’s definitely not for the faint of heart.
Growth Without End comes out on June 2, but you can stream the whole EP and/or preorder it via Pyrrhon’s bandcamp right here. Keep a lookout for our review of it, too, because it’s going up later today.
