4 stars This is what cosmic rape would sound like as an art form.

Ok, so maybe that is a little too absurd, but it comes close to describing the 'sound' or more aptly 'noise' that is Pyramids' self titled debut release. At the core of this album is ambient experimental music which takes massive chunks of avant-garde and progressive influences ranging from drone, black metal, noise and post-rock. In fact, it is so dense and challenging, that it is pointless to try and describe this music in conventional terms, so I won't. The layers on this album are majestic, deep, dense and atmospheric. There are no typically 'metal' or 'rock' riffs here, just layer upon layer of noise and ambiance. Throw in the occasional Jesu-style vocal line and some programmed drum beats, and you have an interesting recipe for chaos. That is what this album is, restrained chaos. If I had to name any track from this album as being above and beyond, it would have to be "End Resolve" for what is a truly mind-bending mash of influences and eerie ambient aura. The closing track "1, 2, 3" is also captivating mostly because of the black metal inspired vocals, something which is apt to catch the unwary lisnter off-guard.

Despite a running time of just over 33 minutes, this album is more than enough to satisfy any listener and their hunger for sonic challenges. The second disc contains a few remixes, and while it is a nice touch, the main attraction should overshadow them. Pyramids are a truly captivating band, and this album is testament to that.

4.5/5
