Pyrexia dropped a lyric video for the song “Purging the Nemesis” from their upcoming rerelease of classic album System of The Animal.
The album initially came out in 1997, and this lyric video will give new listeners a taste of the album, in case they aren’t already familiar:
Band cofounder and guitarist Chris Basile says of the song:
“This track is probably the most ferocious on the album. Pure brutal death metal vintage 1997. Only this time, you can hear the riffs and feel the drums.
The 25th Anniversary edition of System of The Animal 25 was recorded at Chapel Sound on Long Island, NY and was mixed and mastered at Demigod Studios by Miguel Tereso.
“This album was ahead of its time in 1997. I don’t think a lot of people were ready for such a mix of brutal death metal vs. beatdown hardcore. When people hear this material with the production we put together with Demigod Studio, combined with the fact that the music was written in the mid-’90s, I think it puts Pyrexia in a whole new light for a lot of people. I think the songwriting is really going to stand out for listeners bored with bands that put out the same album over and over,” says Basile.
System of the Animal 25 is due out on June 6 via the band’s label Gravitas Entertainment.
