Interview and photos by Noé Loyola
Pyrrhon is one of the wildest mind bending acts out of the New York metal scene. Their latest album, What Passes for Survival, uses a mix of death metal, grindcore and math rock to take a stab at capitalism and to reflect on the bleak future that awaits humanity. As part of their 2018 tour of the West Coast with Succumb, we caught up with vocalist Doug Moore at their Portland show to get some insights into the caustic lyrics that define their vision, their humorous side and the orchestral rendition of one of their new songs.
