Artificial Brain, Pyrrhon, Die Choking Decibel Pre Show Matinee

BlowtheScene.com is excited to present the Official Pre-Show matinee of Decibel’s Metal & Beer Fest on April 22, 2017 at The Barbary venue in Philadelphia with Artificial Brain, Pyrrhon, and Die Choking.

This pre-show, matinee event will be held directly across the street from the main festivities at The Fillmore. This pre-show matinee at The Barbary from 3-6PM, will also be the Philly record release show for NY’s Artificial Brain who are delivering the highly anticipated Infrared Horizon full-length worldwide via Profound Lore Records. The matinee will also feature NYC’s mighty experimental metal practitioners in Pyrrhon, who recently announced bringing Willowtip Records (US) and Throatruiner Records (Fr) within the band’s nexus to release forthcoming material. Philly’s own grindcore decimators Die Choking will launch the bill as members continue to support 2015’s lauded, III, full-length as the band continues to prep material towards a brand new full length due out early 2018.


Die Choking

“Comprised of current and former members of Cop Problem, Total Fucking Destruction, and Burden, the trio of bassist/vocalist Paul Herzog, guitarist Jeffrey Daniels, and drummer Josh Cohen, has grown a big reputation in short time for its unrelenting, caustic brand of socio-politically conscious, anti-authoritarian punk/metal played at tempos that come close to breaking the sound barrier.” – Noisy

“The N.Y. technical death metal band Pyrrhon play most everything but straightforward death or doom, hardcore or noise rock on their excellent second album, The Mother of Virtues. Instead, they push those elements together to craft complicated, personal tantrums that lash at the bounds of strict genre acceptability.” – Pitchfork

Artificial Brain

“NY death metal band Artificial Brain features Revocation guitarist Dan Gargiulo, but they are a far cry from polished tech-thrash. Instead, the quintet gives Gargiulo an outlet for some of his less conventional ideas. Imagine Ulcerate, who also play a dirtier form of technically-inclined death metal, if they sang about alien armies enslaving humanity. Adding to their weirdness is the presence of vocalist Will Smith, formerly of the grind band Biolich, who were spastic enough to tour with Finnish death metal savants Demilich.” –Pitchfork
