|Massachusetts doom band Black Pyramid are having their debut with this self-titled 7" on the equally fresh and new Belgian Electric Earth label. And a great start it is! These guys have really convinced me with these two tracks of tight riffed doom tracks.|
'Visions of Gehenna' also appeared on last year's promo, but this version is re-recorded with a much better, very heavy production. A marvellously catchy track it is, with solid drums, nice thick riffs with a stonerish touch, scraping clean vocals, and an excellent guitar solo. 'Caravan' is also a great track, with a bit more of an epic feel, again very catchy and engrossing.
This is straight-up doom, with a touch of stoner and psychedelic atmosphere, and excellently done, especially for a debuting band. It remains to be seen if Black Pyramid will be able to convince on a longer release, but this single is spot-on, in any case.
Limited to 500 copies, first 100 on white vinyl.
