Checkout Counter: Porhpyria

Back a couple of months, Decibel magazine had a death metal special, and in it they had a commentary from members of some of the bigger metalcore bands now. One of those people who provided something was Trevor Phipps, the vocalist from Unearth. He was talking about new death metal bands such as Job For A Cowboy and Porphyria. Now when he first mentioned Porphyria, I thought he was talking about a death/grind band from Poland, but as it turns out he was actually talking about a band from the Massechusetts/New Hampshire area. Ken Susi from Unearth has done some production for this band, which would explain the Unearth connection.

Porphyria sounds promising, as they sound like a young bunch with lots of energy. The main influence I can hear is Cannibal Corpse. The future may be looking up for this band if they’re willing to do what it takes.
