Pyramids biography
Pyramids are an unclassifiable band hailing from Denton, Texas that play among many things a charismatic and dense style of ambient, post-rock and metal with many challenging avant-garde influences. Pyramids have released a self titled debut album in 2008, and have collaborated with Canadian Doom Metal band Nadja on a 2009 split LP. Pyramids are currently signed to Aaron Turner's (of Isis fame) HydraHead Records label.

From the band myspace page.

It starts in the upper atmosphere, in that rarefied air where silence sings and time is little more than an abstraction. As it makes its way down through the tree line, to sea level, to the ear canals, elliptical windows and auditory nerves of the great unwashed, the shapes begin to shift. The sine waves become more distinct: swarming, swirling guitars, drums like a churning steam press, a chorus of celestial voices. Instruments collude and collide in a roiling shoal and then dissipate, leaving a cavernous hole, a ghost town, the vestiges and echoes of a brief terrestrial existence. Out in Dallas and ?other parts of the country,? where seemingly mild psychotropic disturbances can have vast and sinister implications for certain elements within the local populaces, Pyramids conjure the cacophonies of the great unknown, one song at a time.

Review by Any Colour You Like
Prog Reviewer

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
