U.S. Black Metal Thrashers FROSTHELM have released sophomore full-length Pyrrhic on CD and digital formats via Revenger Records. Stream the album in its entirety below.
Hailing from the frozen plains of North Dakota, FROSTHELM summon forth a vile brew of thrashend black metal misery; complete with crushing riffs, haunting melodies and catchy hook-laden songwriting, all cloaked in an aura of visceral melody. On sophomore full-length Pyrrhic, that same combination of elements is present, but a level-jump in both songwriting and delivery results in the band’s most robust, memorable album to date.
The limited edition deluxe vinyl version of Pyrrhic is targeted for an early April release. The album is packaged in full color gatefold format on 180 gram vinyl and is limited to 100 gold and 100 orange variant copies.
Pyrrhic will also be available on limited edition cassette (100 copies) with full Color +2 J card with laser engraved case and outer O card. Gold cassette shell. Real-time duplication on super ferro tape.

Since 2009, this Bismarck based five-piece has steadily picked up steam, earning much praise in the international metal community. The 2012 EP The Northwinds Rend Flesh set the tone for what was to come and was well received by critics. Their debut full length, The Endless Winter, received numerous positive reviews, including being ranked #9 on MetalSucks’ ‘Best of 2015’ list. The acquisition of shredder Billy Zahn helped FROSTHELM push the envelope even further on Pyrrhic.
