"Continuing to shapeshift and unravel, while using unorthodox songwriting techniques that border on the incomprehensible, avant-garde extreme metal quartet PYRRHON return with What Passes For Survival.

Loosely written over the period of a year, and refined across 6 weeks of touring, What Passes For Survival is PYRRHON's first audio contribution with new drummer Steve Schwegler. It integrates elements of disorienting free improvisation while maintaining a proper foothold in volatile, ferocious death metal. All 4 members contributed at least one song on the album, which was recorded live at Thousand Caves studio with engineer Collin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice) in its rawest possible form, using no click tracks or sound replacement.

Comments vocalist Doug Moore:

"What Passes For Survival is the first music we wrote with my old friend Steve Schwegler on drums, which makes it the first recording of us with a fresh lineup since our first LP from back in 2011. It's something of a reset for the band that way, and we reverted to a more primal songwriting state while compiling it — we aimed to write the most physically and emotionally intense songs we could, instead of deliberately exploring new sounds. As a result, we ended up using a larger proportion of ideas from death metal relative to our other musical ingredients than we have in our past few releases. Pyrrhon's target sound has always been a sort of animalistic, spasmodic ripping and gnashing, like a dog shaking the life out of its prey, and I think we realized that vision more completely on this album than we ever have before."
