"One of the most visionary, commanding, and influential bands of the 21st century." Doomed & Stoned

“A fantastic stoner/doom/psych release that is equally heavy as it is ethereal.” Sea of Tranquility

“It is not only a glorious return but one which comes with great evolutionary ambitions, all of which pay appreciable dividends to the patient, vibe-thirsted ear.” Mystificazione Zine

The long-awaited follow-up to their 2023 album "Adversarial", “The Paths of Time Are Vast” features Andy Beresky on guitar and vocals, Eric Beaudry on bass, and Andy Kivela on drums. This lineup is now the longest-running incarnation of Black Pyramid, actively gigging and touring since 2018 while honing their collective songcraft and solidifying their onstage chemistry. Working with Justin Pizzoferratu (Dinosaur Jr, Witch, Elder) at Sonelab, the band sought to capture the visceral magic and sonic wizardry of their live performances onto tape, and then embellish in the psychedelic decadence of studio experimentation. The result is equally immense and ethereal, massive and otherworldly, elemental and insubstantial, as much an earthquake as an astral projection. Each song embodies the power trio’s raw energy, atavistic power and impassioned playing, juxtaposing elaborate arrangements with fiery free-form improvisation.

New album "The Paths of Time Are Vast"

Out May 3rd on Totem Cat Records (vinyl/CD/digital)

The Massachusetts legends have recently signed to Totem Cat Records for the release of their first new album since 2013’s lauded "Adversarial". Evoking the molten, sludgy tones and immersive atmosphere of their self-titled debut, Black Pyramid greatly expands upon what worked wonders in the past, then seeks the transcendent path, pushing each element of their alchemistic sound to its unparalleled cosmic conclusion. Although past Black Pyramid albums were conceived as collections of stories, this marks the first time an album is written as a single story, as “The Paths of Time Are Vast” relates an epic tale of loss and redemption, death and rebirth, fire and frost. Says frontman Andy Beresky: "This album is your golden ticket to voyage beyond the realms of birth and dead, to take the journey through the many doors of radiant reality and dark dimension, to tread the celestial pathways carved in the carcasses of the stars, and to finally taste the vastness of time and space." Artwork was created by Marald van Haasteren.
