The Skinny: Hailing from Toronto, the mecca of musical ingenuity, Pyres take form as a hydra of heaviness, melody, and groove. Steeped in the murky waters of sludge and hardcore Pyres forge a bastard marriage of rock and metal that blurs the disparate boundaries of extreme music. Impassioned vocals bellow indictments of our crumbling collective conscience, travelling over waves of ever-evolving ris. ick tones of dual guitars attack, while a pummelling and urgent rhythm section surges beneath.

Pyres’ debut LP, Year of Sleep, is a document of both depression and triumph; a shit-list of bangers celebrating the catharsis of the ri. Available July 23, 2013 on Digital
