It’s been worth waiting eight years to see Greg Chandler and his Esoteric band again; A Pyrrhic Existence marks the return that many have been waiting for and it comes with yet another masterpiece that is presented as follows: “The lyrics are about death, suffering, tragedy, lies and the destruction of the human psyche. The title is a reference to the fact that existence can be perceived as something so devastating that survival is tantamount to defeat.” Esoteric go one step further, bringing to the work all the musical experience of Chandler transformed into a dark cloth that covers what remains of existence; the last piece, hopefully only in order of time, of a fundamental discography, not only in the funeral field but for all that concerns the extreme music in the broadest sense.
