Yesterday was Canada Day! In order to celebrate that entirely meaningless (to us US-based folk) event, we are pleased to bring you an exclusive full album stream of Toronto-based swamp metal soldiers Pyres’ debut Year of Sleep, courtesy of Granite House Records.
Proof positive that you don’t have to be from warm climes to ooze out quality sludge metal, the quartet fully indulges in their Mastodontic and Baron-ish tendencies as they set fire to everything in their path. No weird time traveling space journeys here; just 40 minutes of rock. But don’t take my word for it; check them out below. Then when you’re done with that, go ahead and preorder the album on either delicious caramel/black swirl (limited to 100) or plain old black (limited to 200) vinyl get an immediate digital download. Streams are good to sample with, but something this heavy needs to be experienced on a proper turntable. So turn up the bass and prepare to get crushed.
