PYRAMAZE Return With 'Contingent' Due April 28

Artist: 
 
The melodic metal band PYRAMAZE will release their new album "Contingent" on April 28th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings.
 
With their milestone fifth album "Contingent," Pyramaze have grown and matured into a band that is capable of satisfying their fans while simultaneously continuing to break new ground. The incorporation of modern cinematic film score elements mixed with progressive metal riffs and melodies will leave the listener breathless! Huge, sweeping, hard-hitting, and poignant, "Contingent" is an epic post-apocalyptic conceptual piece inspired by current events, the human spirit to overcome struggle and diversity, and the brotherhood that lies there in. Produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen [Volbeat, Amaranthe, Epica, Evergrey].
 
"Divided by oceans, bound together by brotherhood, we must become that which divides us.... we are PYRAMAZE, and we are the Ocean!"

Pyramaze for me, started with a bang (with vocalist Lance King) and failed to capitalize on a strong start, losing Lance after their second album and going thru another vocalist on their third before taking a break to regroup.
In 2013 new vocalist Terje Harøy joined and the band set their sights on making their best effort yet. And I think they have. New vocalist Terje is a great find. His voice is
 
The album’s production is world class thanks to producer and guitarist Jacob Hansen (who joined in 2011) and the songwriting lifts these guys from the sidelines to the frontline.
 
At 52 minutes, the album keeps to the point. Plenty of riffing and subtle tempo changes, plus enough double kick drum to keep metal fans screaming, but no overly long songs or filling the airtime with needless instrumental wandering.
This has more in common with Masterplan musically, mixing classic and contemporary effortlessly.
 
Stand outs for me include the title track Disciples Of The Sun (hard hitting and big vocal); the Masterplan influenced commercial metal of Back For More; the brilliant hook of Fearless and the crunch of Unveil.
The swirling keyboards and double time crunch of When Black Turns To White, which leads into a short atmospheric ballad, is a great way to close out the album.

One of the better melodic metal albums of 2015 and a sure fire way to get these guys back on the map. A consistent and memorable set of songs and a big fat metal production. Check it out!

PYRAMAZE - Disciples of the Sun (Showcase)

Artist: 
Disciples Of The Sun
Produced By: 
Jacob Hansen
Release Date: 
2015
Released: 
Europe
Genre: 
Melodic Metal
 
Pyramaze was founded by guitarist Michael Kammeyer in 2002 with the intention of creating an epic melodic metal band from scratch. The original line-up also consisted of Niels Kvist on bass, Lance King on vocals, and remaining current members Morten Gade Sørensen on drums and keyboardist Jonah W. respectively. This line-up saw the release of the first two Pyramaze albums "Melancholy Beast" (2004) and "Legend of the Bone Carver." (2006) Lead guitarist Toke Skjønnemand joined the band in time to record the "Legend of the Bone Carver" album.
 
In 2007 Lance King was replaced by former Iced Earth vocalist Matt Barlow and Pyramaze recorded their third album "Immortal" (2008) to high critical acclaim.
 
Following the release of "Immortal" Matt Barlow left and returned to Iced Earth. He was briefly replaced by Urban Breed for the bands Danish tour with Volbeat in 2008. Several line-up changes occurred in 2008, including the departure of Kammeyer, Kvist, and Urban Breed.
 
Guitarist and producer Jacob Hansen joined Pyramaze in 2011 and the band began working on their next album during that time. Eventually seeing new vocalist Terje Harøy join Pyramaze in 2013.
 
Marking the dawn of a new era for Pyramaze, fourth album "Disciples of the Sun" is a true creative and artistic venture for Pyramaze. With song writing being divided between members Jacob, Toke, and Jonah this time around, there is an undeniable diversity and freshness to the sound of the album.  Heavy, dark, progressive, melodic, and catchy.... "Set out to catch the fire!"
 
Heavy and full guitar riffs, complemented by the epic and cinematic keyboard arrangements of Jonah W, along with the blistering infusion and foundation provided by drummer Morten Gade Sørensen, work together seamlessly to create the signature sound of Pyramaze. New vocalist Terje Harøy brings power and catchy melodies with a modern flair, without sacrificing the dark and progressive edge that Pyramaze is known for. The furious, progressive, and precise thrash infused riffs of new guitarist Jacob Hansen lay down the rock solid foundation upon which the soaring vocal and guitar melodies exist. Lead guitarist Toke Skjønnemand brings the shred and undeniably memorable guitar solos with both a modern and classic influence.
