PYREXIA Release "Purging The Nemesis" Lyric Video; Re-Recorded 25th Anniversary Edition Of System Of The Animal Due In June

In 1997, Long Island, NY's Pyrexia unleashed one of their OSDM classic records, System Of The Animal. Set to unleash a re-recorded 25th-anniversary edition of the album with its current band lineup that consists of Chris Basile (guitar), Shaun Kennedy (bass), Jim Beach (vocals), and John Glassbrenner (drums), the punishing brutal death metallers are sharing a new lyric video for the track "Purging The Nemesis".

Stream the track on here, and watch the clip below.

Band co-founder and guitarist Chris Basile say about the track: "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 was recorded at Chapel Sound on Long Island, NY, and was mixed and mastered at Demigod Studios by Miguel Tereso. With System Of The Animal 25, Pyrexia provides the blueprint for OG Brutality. It's fierce, angry, and in your face. This album will not leave your playlist. So put on your moshing shoes for this one. Heads will be banging and elbows flying.

"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 6t via the band's label Gravitas Entertainment. Album pre-order (CD, vinyl) is available here.
