This Triple Drum/Bass/Guitar Playthrough Video Goes Pyrrhon and On and On and On….

I don’t want to alarm you guys, but a Pyrrhon, Gigan, Artifical Brain tour may just overload your ability to process the sound of dissonant, technical death metal from outer space. I’m pretty sure they’re working in “nap time” to give your ears a break. Hopefully there will be Nilla Wafers or Cheez-Its involved.


You might be in decent shape, though, if you can prep your ears for the onslaught ahead of time. So with that said, we have 3 Pyrron playthrough videos at once. Still too much for you to handle? Well don’t worry, you can click on any individual musician and watch him all by his isolated self.

The track is “Balkanized,” from the band’s new record, The Mother of Virtues, which was released a few months back. Those of you inclined to pick it up can do so at the Relapse Records webstore, or on iTunes.

Before Pyrrhon’s tour launches in earnest they’ll be testing the waters this Saturday at Long Island, New York’s Obnoxious Noise Fest, hosted at Even Flow Bar and Grill in Bay Shore. It features the band’s tourmates Artificial Brain, plus Malignancy, Mutilation Rites, and Mother Brain for your maximum allowance of bands with “Brain” in their name. Here’s the rest of Pyrrhon’s tour itinerary:
