Twenty years on, we revisit a ’90s death metal classic.
Thrilled by the immersive and imposing power of Mire, we had an in-depth conversation with Conjurer to find out about their origins, the creation of their debut album and how they found their signature sound.
So often are metal acts defined as “crazy” or “frenzied” that such descriptions often mean little in the grand scope of the genre, but if one band are deserving of such titles, it’s Pyrrhon.
