PYRRHON (New York)
Pyrrhon (pronounced “peer-on”) is an experimental metal band from New York City. They formed in 2008 after a chance meeting on a subway platform, and have been honing their increasingly twisted take on the genre ever since. They have five official releases to their name so far: 2009’s Fever Kingdoms EP, 2011’s An Excellent Servant But A Terrible Master, 2014’s The Mother Of Virtues, 2015’s Growth Without End EP, and 2016’s Running Out Of Skin EP. They have also recorded two demos and toured extensively in North America and Europe.

DIE CHOKING (Pennsylvania)
“Die Choking serves in part as a venue for its musicians to push their abilities to the limits, and these tracks are indeed withering workouts — as fast and scathing as any metal you’ll hear this year, with extra emphasis courtesy of engineer Will Yip (Circa Survive, Blacklisted, and, uh, Lauryn Hill)’s exacting production. That’s saying a lot, given how high the ceiling’s gotten for speed and brutality in metal’s more extreme marches.” –

LEASH (New Hampshire/Maine)
“Shit. I just had to jump on here and post about this Demo I just heard from a new band called Leash. It’s 6 songs of absolutely punishing D-Beat Punk DONE RIGHT. Leash is from Portsmouth, NH and features members of Ramlord, Ultra//Negative, Vaast & Erotic City Blues Band. Their short description of themselves is: “we do drugs and listen to discharge and carcass. kill every fucking human.” Mandatory listening.” –


Rumford/Dixfield’s death metal posse Hatred Alive returns to Geno’s Rock Club, to open this evening of relentless cacophony. “Maine’s only long standing DEATH METAL band!!! Keeping it BRUTAL in the 207!”
