Hell Pyre 2002
Nebiula Productions, 2002
I have their "Pure Flesh.." demo,
which is one of the local best demo of that year. Because of that demo and
also with the quote from the label's flyer comparing Pyron with Langsuyr
(that is a highest compliment a band could get), this EP is one of the most
anticipated release. Luckily "Hell Pyre 2002" meets with my expectation.
Eastern death metal like they said in their demo flyer so this is what you
will hear in this 5 tracks tape. They are progressing in the right way.
Music wise they are getting more brutal, a bit melodic with good solos. They
improve a lot especially on the guitars and the vocals. Maybe the sound is
not in the best state but perhaps it is my tape's fault. I think this will
be a problem when the CD version is release (as a split album with
Vociferation Eternity "For Thee" album). One of the interesting things is
this 'eastern' thing in metal. You will get the answers from them in the
Promo Tracks 2003
The latest attack from Pyron which I received few weeks before this is
released. Two new songs; "Wounded Pride" and "Yesterday Comes Alive". I
think these songs was recorded for compilation project but I don't exactly
sure. Good sound, I prefer this one than the cassette EP. The songs are
much, much better. Much more intense, brutal, technical and less melodic.
They have destroyed the eastern softness in their DNA (refer the interview)
and now they are in the league of unique eastern brutal death bands!!
