Black Pyramid play doom with the rumbling down-tuned tones of stoner metal gods like Sleep, Electric Wizard, and High On Fire, but with the epic arrangements of old school metal and doom acts such as Black Sabbath, Pentagram, and The Obsessed.
Add to the sonic brew perfectly executed forays into vintage psych and progressive rock, along with the apocalyptic lyrical ravings about war, the occult, and general alienation, and you’ve got an accurate picture of what the band is all about.
Formed in 2007, the American trio composed at that time of Andy Beresky (guitar/vocals), Gein (bass) and Clay Neely (drums), immediately caught the attention of the Stoner/Doom scene with their Demo (2007) and first EP (2008). They confirmed their status with their following full-length album “Black Pyramid”, released in 2009 on Electric Earth / MeteorCity Record.
After this release Black Pyramid proceeded to hit the road on several tours and unleashed a tide of singles and splits. 2010 saw a split with Old One issued, and 2011 followed with a slew of vinyls : the “Mercy’s Bane” single, a CD compilation of wax-only material would soon follow on Hydro-Phonic under the name “Stormbringer”, and a split with Tenspeed Warlock.
In 2012, MeteorCity released their second full-length album, “II”. But right after the release of their latter LP, Andy Beresky left the band, and after some soul-searching, Neely and Gein decided to continue Black Pyramid, bringing on board guitarist/vocalist Darryl Shepard (Hackman, Blackwolfgoat, Milligram) and setting almost immediately about writing new material.
“Adversarial” was released in spring 2013 and was the first album with the full current line-up as composers & performers !
After just over a years hiatus the doom troupe have returned!!
Prepare to be crushed by the weight of the Black Pyramid…
