Black Pyramid : Black Pyramid



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.
