One of the most amazing Prog Metal albums I have heard recently, comes from straight from New York and it is no other than the second “Gold Tooth” release by PYRAMID.

The band is around since 2017 and they have actually released another also -“Mi Rage” is its title and I would put on the list of worth checking debuts-. PYRAMID fulfills the artistic vision of the bassist Lance Sawyer who composes and arranges everything in here, however he have managed to gather a bunch of great musicians around the project. For example Chris Quirarte from REDEMPTION is doing all the drumming in here, while Denny Anthony (SIGNS Of REIGN, VERITAS, ABANDONED FATE), takes care of all the vocal duties (and man he is doing it really well). Finally Adam Bentley and Joey Izo -both from ARCH ECHO) are completing the puzzle on guitars and keyboards.

Musically the album is an amazing combination of material that would bring into your mind the “Images and Words” period of DREAM THEATER, the early -and most melodic days of SYMPHONY X and the overall shining of RUSH -which is Sawyer’s favorite band and biggest influence-.

The most interesting feature of this album is the actual songwriting. We got 9 compositions that flows smoothly on ears and head.

You may ask me about the record’s top features. And I would refer to the very well arranged vocal melodies -actually I can point this album as the top singing moment for Anthony who has done a fantastic job in here-. I would also point the very extensive but still very into the point song structures -key feature for a Prog release IMO- and of course the amazing lead guitar and keyboard parts.

The album is very well produced and the overall sound does justice to the material. Well what else can I say? Nothing, I would just repeat myself pointing that this is one of the most amazing Prog Metal releases I have heard recently. Go out there and get the record if you are in the mood for some first class Prog Metal.

I breathe for music. And I am more than sure that my mission in this universe is to make everybody agree that "Awaken The Guardian" by FATES WARNING is the best album ever released, yes in all musical genres. My next mission is to feed homeless cats and when I am not busy with all this stuff I listen to US Prog / Power and Epic Doom Metal. And I cast spells in rituals in order to awake the old ones.

Interview with HORIZON’S END

Speaking with HORIZON'S END mastermind - Sakis Bandis (keyboards) is a beautiful adventure, like each and every listen to each and every of their songs. There were really a lot of things to be discussed, as this is the very first interview that took place after the band's reunion. There is new music, there is this sudden (or not so sudden?) comeback, there is an album that was recorded but never released and a whole band that was put on ice many moons ago. Sakis spread some light to all those topics that waited for years to be clarified and to many new ones, as a new journey to the end of an infinite horizon has already started!
