2 stars I like to access progarchives to know what new values ​​are in the market in order to get new discs for my collection. When I read the list of tops of 2019, I found this Psychedelic and Space Rock band. In the very beginning, it seems promising. Also the reviews are good. However, as I listen to this album, my expectations are changing step by step. Pyramidal is a work made of 6 tracks. At first I like the proposal. His first song seems attractive, but over the time it is only a proposal with a King Crimson sound, but of a lower level. The saxophone has a classic sound (quite academic) away from the jazzy or rocky sound we are used to. In other words, 9 minutes of good intentions, but anchored in a harmonic structure that does not go anywhere. His second track begins in the same way as the previous one, that is, with a hypnotic use of musical elements, revolving around them on and on. "Unconscious Oscillations", the third title, features the same fault as the previous tracks. The last two songs delve into the same techniques, harmonies and timbre. All in all, the compositional formula is repeated again and again without offering anything new, which causes boredom and a deep exhaustion. On the other hand, production, even though it is self-produced, lacks very basic aspects such as the clarity of the planes, the clip of certain frequencies that produces quite a dark sound, and drums that sometimes remains of a rehearsal environment. If this band want to evolve, they must improve all these aspects.
