Making The Monolith...

Brain Pyramid - Chasma Hideout (2014)


France's 3-piece Brain Pyramid has come back from tripping in the blue with their new album, the cerebellum-melting Chasma Hideout, which runs wild on a fuel of heavy psychedelic and hard rock. Capturing the spirit of jamming out in the country-side and lathering it up with some toothy distortion and sweet-finger licks, there's a lot of unruly and vibrant energy coursing through the album as it riffs and rips all over the place. Killer drum fills and rhythm switch-ups keep things unpredictable and energized, while the ~11-minute brain liquidation of the closing title track gives the trio the room they need to satisfactorily cap off their mad run of songs, including the massive shredding of “Lucifer”, the mighty acceleration of "Into The Lightspeed", and the space truckin' intro of “Living In The Outer Space”.
The album's release date is today, so if you have a fondness for heavy psychedelic with some high-energy performances, be sure to not let this one slip past you. It's currently available on CD from Acid Cosmonaut Records, so do yourself a favor and snap one up before they're all gone!
