As I Lay Dying / Austrian Death Machine vocalist Tim Lambesis has added yet another project to his musical resume. The singer's most recent group is Pyrithion, and the band's debut EP, 'The Burden of Sorrow,' is set for release on April 16 via Metal Blade Records.

Also consisting of Ryan Glisan (Allegaeson) and Andy Godwin (ex-The Famine, Embodyment), Pyrithion is a step into a more tradition realm of metal. "I have wanted to do a heavier and more traditionally metal band for a while," says Lambesis. 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."

After the three musicians began sending ideas back and forth, the group quickly began to put some pieces together. "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," says Glisan. "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."

Pyrithion has already released a lyric video for the track 'The Invention of Hatred,' which you can check out in the video player below. To pre-order a copy of 'The Burden of Sorrow,' click here.
