PYRAMIDS with WRAITHS ‘Magpie & Raven’ sees Pyramids at their most sprawling and with moments of ultimate bombast. With piano provided by Clay Ruby (Burial Hex) as an integral part, the 25 minute plus track weaves around this motif with massive guitars and a spoken word performance that is truly epic before everything dissolves in a maelstrom of organic noise as Wraiths eviscerate the previous musical section to its very atomic particles before all comes together again and the track ends with a sense of calm conclusion.
This amazing release is presented as a limited edition one-sided clear vinyl LP in a signature AB vellum-style sleeve with artwork by noted tattoo artist Simon Erl. The multi-layered artwork can all be soon as one whole when held up to the light. Comes with an MP3 download card. Housed in heavy PVC outer sleeve. Edition of 350. A shirt and a limited cassette edition are also available.
THISQUIETARMY ‘Vessels’ LP out now. We are very proud to finally present the vinyl edition of this stunning album, and it truly sounds immense in this format!
‘Vessels’ explores themes of the sea and man’s struggle with this relentless and all pervasive force, the music a perfect means of expressing both the flat calm and the force 9 storm. Eric Quach, the man behind thisquietarmy, is a prolific artist, and ‘Vessels’ is perhaps his most impactful work to date. ‘The Pacific Theater’ grips the listener in warm drone before slamming them into the rocks with epic percussion. Album closer ‘A Spanish Galleon’ takes a more gentle approach with clean guitar and washes of orchestral strings.
Presented as a limited edition clear vinyl LP in a signature AB vellum-style sleeve with an MP3 download card. Housed in heavy PVC outer sleeve. Edition of 300.
