The Indian metal is growing bigger with each progressing
year. Though, it still has huge untapped potential in it, emerging bands like
Pyramids show that there is a bright future ahead.
Pyramids is a progressive metal band hailing from Delhi.
After coming together in 2012, the band has had to face multiple lineup changes
before they could release their debut EP - Sub Rosa. Despite all the
adversities, the band has delivered a strong album showcasing the great potential
the band possesses.
The album clocking just over 20 minutes has a nice mix of
groove and heavy guitar work, along with a unique mix of synths and electronic
formulations. The variation through the songs, keeps the listener engaged and
does not bring in monotony at any point.
The EP deals with conspiracy theories and freeing of human
minds with illuminati inspired artwork and track titles like “Area 51”. The track
is the longest clocking in just over 5 minutes, and perhaps the best on the
album. Aamir’s growls and Sarina Grewal’s (Feat.) cleans flow in perfect sync
and the guitar riffs are groovy and will have your head bobbing in no time.
Overall, this is a great debut record from Pyramids. The band
has started off on all the right notes, and can only go upwards from here.
