Premiere: Black Pyramid ‘The Paths of Time Are Vast’– New Album Drops Tomorrow, 3rd May

Is it just me or is it hard to believe it’s been eleven years since stoner doom rockers Black Pyramid released their last long-player, the critically acclaimed Adversarial which Hydro-Phonic Records unleashed to the masses back in 2013?

Before you go checking Discogs or Metal Archives for confirmation, it is indeed true, but don’t let that detract you as the Massachusetts trio, along with the backing of Totem Cat Records, will be ushering in their latest album The Paths Of Time Are Vast tomorrow, 3rd May.

Featuring eight mesmerising tracks of stoner metal and doom rock, guitarist and vocalist Andy Beresky about their new opus says, ‘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.’

Now today, just 24 hours before it hits the streets, it’s time to immerse yourself in the electrifying world of Black Pyramid and their new album The Paths Of Time Are Vast by clicking play below…

More On Black Pyramid & ‘The Paths Of Time Are Vast’

The Massachusetts legends Black Pyramid 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.

As stated by Doomed & Stoned editors, ‘one of the albums doom metal fans can legit look forward to in coming months is the return effort from Black Pyramid, one of the most visionary, commanding, and influential bands of the first two decades of the 21st century.’

Slated for a May 3rd release, 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.
