PSYCHIC PAWN "Eulogy: The Complete Anthology" - Reviewed By Metal Digest ! Check it out here at this link: https://metal-digest.com/2021/07/05/psychic-pawn-eulogy-the-complete-anthology/
Florida was not the only US state in on the burgeoning Death Metal scene in the early 90s. Florida had the bigger names, but there was (and is) plenty of talent to go around. One such place is Arizona; maybe brutal climates breed brutal music. The Valley of the Sun gave birth to Psychic Pawn, (PP), a fairly short-lived outfit whose sound generally runs along the same lines as their Florida brethren, but with a few notable exceptions. PP recorded two demos, one EP and one LP, all of which are included on this remastered two-disc set. Some of the budgetary limitations are evident here, but it gives an air of authenticity to it all. Vocals are the standard DM fare but mixed with an interesting grit and gruff as well. The riffs are crushing, precise and relentless and often come off in a mad flurry. Between the fretwork (guitar and bass) on “Improbital,” “Nocturnal Usurper,” and the beautiful “In Limbo,” I am curious how they would have developed as a band. Some members did press on with various projects, but that is another avenue for you to explore.
‘Eulogy’ gives more than just a glance into the lifespan of Psychic Pawn, but into Death Metal itself. If you are looking for new music, this is probably not for you. If you want to delve into the history of the craft, step right up. - Metal Digest

"PSYCHIC PAWN were gruesome maniacs with tons of technical flair. One of the earliest Cacophonous releases, the Americans’ only album "Decadent Delirium" was a thrilling rush of untutored aggression and vein-popping fretwork that, with hindsight, clearly paved the way for Death Metal’s creative rejuvenation in the early 21st century. Brilliantly twisted stuff and a telling statement of intent from Cacophonous." (Dom Lawson - Metal Hammer) - [ READ THE FULL ARTICLE ]

THRASHBACK RECORDS is pleased to announce that this May we will be releasing a 2-CD collection from the Phoenix, AZ based Death Metal quartet PSYCHIC PAWN titled "Eulogy: The Complete Anthology".
Formed in 1989, PSYCHIC PAWN would release two highly acclaimed demos, "Expedient Demise" in 1991 and "Wake Of Entity" in 1992. "Wake Of Entity" would catch the attention of England's Cacophonous Records and would release the three track 7" E.P. "Disgorged Suppuration" in late 1993.
In 1993 Cacophonous Records would sign the band and release their debut album "Decadent Delirium" November of 1994 (produced by Bill Metoyer) to much acclaim. Unfortunately this would be the bands only album release. After the demise of PSYCHIC PAWN the members would go on to form other acclaimed bands such as BORN OF FIRE and IMAGES OF EDEN.
"Eulogy: The Complete Anthology" compiles all of the bands studio recordings with remastering handled by Rob Colwell at Bombworks Sound. Includes a 16-page booklet with archival photo's and fliers, and a new interview with guitarist Micha Kite conducted by Jon Norberg of Contaminated Tones Web Zine.
