Melding an otherworldy blend of shoegaze, industrial, and black metal like no other band before them, Texas’ Pyramids croon through hazy dysphoric drones and Ambien-laced soundscapes that sound as if Altar of Plagues and Anathema collided in celebration of melancholia. I could pick more flowery language out of a thesaurus all day, but the fact of the matter is that Pyramids are a band you need to be hearing like five years ago.
Fortunately there’s no better time to discover a new band than the lead-up to the release of a new album, and Pyramids are gearing up for the release of their new album, A Northern Meadow. With a lineup being rounded out by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice) and Vindsval (Blut Aus Nord), A Northern Meadow promises to be the group’s most expansive and transformative work to date. And judging by the tracklist, we’re in for a hell of a ride:
- In Perfect Stillness, I’ve Only Found Sorrow
- The Earth Melts Into Red Gashes Like The Mouths Of Whales
- The Substance Of Grief Is Not Imaginary
- Indigo Birds
- I Have Four Sons, All Named For Men We Lost To War
- I Am So Sorry, Goodbye
- My Father, Tall As Goliath

A Northern Meadow is due out March 17th through Profound Lore Records. Keep up with the Pyramids on Facebook as more news and music rolls in.
