Pyramido are a band from Sweden that plays a mixture of sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Saga" which was released by La Familia/Farewell Records.
"Varje steg ar ett snedsteg" begins with some distorted effects which lead to some heavy guitar riffs, drums, growls and screams and after awhile the guitar riffing starts adding in some dark sounding melodies and as the song moves on the riffs get more diverse while remaining true to doom metal and sludge.
"Ar Av Onad" begins with some heavy and distorted guitar riffs and drums which then lead to the vocals kicking in along with some melodic sounding guitar leads a few seconds later as well as some powerful bass guitars and a few minutes later they take over along with some clean playing before getting heavy again and adding some melody to the guitar riffing.
"Fosie" begins with with some heavy guitar riffs and drums along with some dark sounding melodies and then some high pitched screams and more aggressive drums come in briefly while the screams remain and the drumming goes back to being slow and the song for the most part stays in the same musical direction until the end.
"Klockrike" begins with some sound effects and psychedelic style synths and after awhile drums start kicking in along with some guitar leads a minute later and there are no vocals present on this song with the music being all instrumental.
"Ingen manniska ar en" begins with some melodic guitar riffs, heavy bass guitars and drums which lead to some high pitched screams kicking in and a few minutes later there is a brieef use of melodic guitar leads being utilized for a few seconds and the song remains slow from beginning to end.
"Tiden ar kommen" begins with some heavy bass guitars and drums which lead to some heavy guitar riffs and after awhile the sludge style screams become a part of the song as well as some dark melodic guitar riffing as well as some heavy bass guitars.
Song lyrics are written in Swedish and cover dark themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this album.
In my opinion Pyramido are a very great sounding hybrid of sludge and doom metal and if you are a fan of this musicla genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Varje steg ar ett snedsteg" and "Ingen manniska ar en". RECOMMENDED BUY.
