NYC death-metal staple Pyrexia returns with a muscular new effort, the title track of the band's forthcoming album, Unholy Requiem, as well as its unnerving video. Leaning heavily on groove with an emphasis on slam, the latest track is ready for the pit while maintaining an overall stench of hate, doom and despair. This is truly death metal of the coldest sort, remorseless, vengeful and fist-clenchingly great. The entirety of Unholy Requiem was recorded, mixed and mastered by founding Pyrexia guitarist and lone constant Chris Basile, at Subsonic Audio, who created a truly killer effort. You can pre-order your copy ahead of the LP's September 14th release on Unique Leader Records.
"We are super excited to finally release the video for the title track of our new album Unholy Requiem," Basile comments. "The production value is definitely next level for us. Something you might see on The History Channel. And having Revolver magazine premiere the video is also pretty nuts. The storyline follows a man who loses his wife and then performs a sort of blood ritual out of desperation to get her back. What happens next is nothing short of an abomination."
