Pyrrhon get kaleidoscopic with new video

Pyrrhon - Sleeper Agent screen cap

We’ve had half an eye on Brooklyn-based death metal quartet Pyrrhon (whose name I still have to check for spelling every time I type it) this year. They released the fantastic The Mother Of Virtues earlier this year, and judging by their low number of Facebook followers, they’re also criminally underrated.

So let’s go about trying to change that, shall we?

The band have released a brand new video from the aforementioned record, titled “Sleeper Agent“. It’s super trippy, so make sure you’ve taken your meds before you hit go:

The record makes me feel kinda itchy, like it’s the end of the world and the big G’s just unleashed the plague of flies, and “Sleeper Agent” is a microcosm of that. When the song gets into its faster sections, it reminds me of that series of Blotted Science videos from The Animation Of Entomology EP, which were scored to various films sections like the giant bug chasm from King Kong, or the wasp scenes from Swarmed. Shiver me nipples, matey.
