Welcome Metalheads! Hump Day Metal Day rolls on with some old school death becoming new again...
Normally I probably wouldn’t cover a reissue but since I never heard this one the first time but have since gotten into the band I’m bringing it to you anyway so deal with it! Pyrexia had never even been on my radar until I heard their last album, Feast of Iniquity, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope you don’t hate on me too bad as I wasn’t really into death metal in my younger days when Pyrexia was around in the 90s then they took a decade off until the release of 2007s Age of the Wicked then another 6 years off before releasing Feast’. Feast of Iniquity sounded to me much like early Death which had me hooked much like new band Gruesome I highlighted last week. Century Media is about to reissue Pyrexia’s first full length with all sorts of bonus material from live tracks, demos and most of the ’95 Ep Hatredangeranddisgust which is pretty damn awesome as I assume most (like myself) have never heard these early Pyrexia works. I’m all for labels re-issuing albums like this that are impossible to find today for those looking and CM seem to be going a similar route as Relapse Records in the reisuues of classic Death albums with all the added bonus material. Take a listen to the remastered title track, Sermon of Mockery, for some old school death metal coming from Long Island, NY rather than out of FL at the time.
Sermon of Mockery will hit store shelves on April 14th and you can order yours in the format and bonus package of your choosing from Century Media HERE. Pyrexia is doing a short East Coast tour with the awesome Aborted so check the dates for an awesome night of death metal! Then stay up to date on all your Pyrexia news by following them on Facebook and Twitter.
