PYRE - "Chained to Ossuaries" '2020
(CD - Memento Mori / LP - Dawnbreed Records)
The long-awaited sophomore full-length by Russian band Pyre. Rising from the sewers of Saint Petersburg in 2011 and consisting of some hyperactive musicians who are/were members of many other underground Russian acts. Pyre's unholy sledgehammer of rotting and caustic music is Death fucking Metal right down to its genes. It's as genuine and convincing as it can possibly get, focusing on the traditional and raw sound. After a number of previous releases and lots of gigs under their belts, in and out of their motherland, Pyre are now ready to bust through their second opus, "Chained to Ossuaries". No quarter given and no compromises made, here do Pyre chain themselves to their signature traditionalist sound -again, it's Death fucking Metal, and it needs to stay that way- but nevertheless do the power trio strive for a sound that's darker, more cryptic and more hypnotic as a result. Indeed, "Chained to Ossuaries" is as sinister as its title suggests, galloping forward one minute and dragging the listener down into doomed abysses the other, the former flaying the listener alive while the latter throbs with the ominousness of a gargantuan subterranean beast. Of especial note is the production here, crisp and lively, richly analog but not drowning in reverb or over-distortion, the drums in particular snapping bones with ease. With dark and stylish cover art courtesy of Artem Grigoryev, Pyre prove with "Chained to Ossuaries" that the second strike is deadlier indeed!
