Black Pyramid Releasing New Album This Month
Recorded "in the foothills of the Berkshires" at Black Coffee Sound (Elks, Elder) and mixed by Justin Pizzoferrato (Sonic Youth / Witch / Dinosaur Jr.), the record features nine tracks of the band's self-titled "galloping war metal". Black Pyramid II was mastered by Matt Washburn (Mastodon) and is "at times a bit more death metal and black metal influenced" than the band's previous material.
"We're incredibly proud of the sonic landscapes we were able to achieve with the new album," said Black Pyramid drummer Clay Neely. "It's a clear successor to the debut album and we allowed ourselves to further expand into some uncharted territories. The recording of the record was an incredibly rewarding experience and we can't wait to bring the show back on the road."
"The first album represented a book of nine different stories from our own private mythology...the Black Pyramid mythology," Neely explained. "This second album, "II", represents another nine stories from the same book but these are significantly darker tales."
