Marasmus’ ‘Syphlitic’ is your Pitch Music Awards song of the day

This year, the 2014
Pitch Music Awards Showcase is split over two nights: Saturday, July 19, at the Riot Room and Friday, July 25, at Knuckleheads Saloon (lineup details and tickets here.) The PMA Awards Show is at the Uptown Theater, held this year on Sunday, August 3, and hosted by World Air Guitar Champion Eric “Mean” Melin and Mills Record Co.’s Judy Mills (tickets here).

To count down to the awards ceremony – and help introduce you to this year’s picks – we’re going to be debuting a “song of the day” each weekday until the show from one of this year’s batch of nominees.

Marasmus is one death metal act I wouldn’t want to meet alone in a dark alley. The brutal band would probably rip out my heart and leave me for dead. But that’s part of the dark attraction of this fearsome three-piece: There is no quiet moment or sense of peace when it comes to Marasmus’ music. Lead singer Devon’s voice is the stuff of adult nightmares, and you can hear it gloriously roar in our PMA song du jour.
