Pyrithion (As I Lay Dying) announces debut EP

Pyrithion, a new project formed by As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis, will release their debut EP next month. Pyrithion also features Ryan Glisan (Allegaeon) and Andy Godwin (ex-The Famine). Lambesis explained the genesis of the band: "I have wanted to do a heavier and more traditionally metal band for a while. Being that I own a recording studio, I thought a great place to start was by asking my engineer who the best guitar player is that he has recorded. I wanted to team him up with one of my favorite guitar players growing up." Glisan elaborates further: "When Tim first reached out to me to ask if I was interested in starting a new project, I was really intrigued as to where the overall sound would go. Given the short time frame we had to work with, the 'newness' of all the members, and an uncertainty of an overall direction, I wasn't initially 100% confident in how the end product would turn out. After spending a weekend collaborating, recording these initial 3 songs, and beginning to write new songs going forward, I can say with absolute confidence now that this band will be a major force in the metal scene." The new EP is titled The Burden of Sorrow and will be available on April 16th via Metal Blade Records. A lyric video for "The Invention of Hatred" can be seen below:
