Pyogenesis is a Punk/Pop/Alternative-rock band from Hamburg, Germany.
They started off as a Death Metal band in Stuttgart when they released their first demo “Ode to the churning seas of Nar-Mataru” in 1991. After releasing two EPs “Rise of the unholy” and “Sacrificious profanity” their first selftitled mini-album was released in 1992 on Osmose Records. On this album, which is commonly known as “Ignis creatio” (named after the last track of the album), Pyogenesis combines their Death Metal roots with Doom and Gothic influences. The combination of Tim Eiermann’s deep voice and growls and Flo V. Schwarz’ clean vocals became a trademark of Pyogenesis until the album “Mono…”.
Their next EP “Waves of erotasia” was released on Nuclear Blast Records in 1994 and continued the developing to a more melodic and Gothic Death Metal. On the album “Sweet x-rated nothings”, an underground success, melodies became more and more important to the song structure and brought the band their first hit “Fade away”. The subsequent “Twinaleblood” from 1995 mixed the bands Death Metal background with Punk and Alternative-Rock influences. In 1996 Pyogenesis’ fourth release on Nuclear Blast “Love nation sugarhead ep” started the new aera of the band. The sound changed to Alternative-Rock with heavy influences of Punk and Pop which also dominated the sound of the album “Unpop” from 1997.

    There are bands that have shifted from death-doom to a more commercially friendly sound (see: Katatonia, Amorphis) that still make good music after the change. Pyogenesis is not one of those bands.

    "once you get out of your oompaloompa deathmetalkid realm, you realize that later pyogenesis was really cool" Indeed it is really so. ;-) The later albums are Pop-Punk but they aren't bad.

    The intro on "Rise Of The Unholy" - where could I hear it before and who used it as well?! I'm sure I've heard it before somewhere...

    In my opinion Pyogenesis changed a lot. My first time that I heard them was with their song "Don't you say maybe" which was actually a good song and yes the album "She makes me wish I had a gun" was their best rock album because of the punk influences. Death Doom Pyogenesis are also great but I really hate their soft rock / gothic albums like Unpop or Mono (which is actually listenable compared to Unpop).

    "@pyokatZer: Maybe he does. So what? Do you have a problem with the fact he may have a problem? [2]

    Ode to the Churning Seas of Nar-Mataru is an amazing demo.

    I liked their doom period but Unpop and She Makes Me Wish I Had A Gun were great albums...

    Also, Toto would be proud for the Africa cover.

    Awesome band, it's great to all the close-minded metalheads disliking them. That means they are good.
