Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Pyramids on Mars. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and was fascinated by the atmosphere of their music.
I was really impressed by this album, a very high-quality musical work that demonstrates the great compositional skills of Kevin Estrella, the main architect behind this fantastic project.
The band in general delivers a solid music product, with attention to every detail and above all interpreted in an impeccable way by all the members of the band.
The solos are intricate and sinuous and the chord progression is never predictable and banal. The rhythmic and melodic nuances are brilliant and make it clear how much Kevin Estrella knows music and has mastered it in every detail.
Pyramids on Mars is a band that offers a refined and solid sound experience, a nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Cosmic Angels is Pyramids on Mars’ Album Out Now!
Mature and Solid!
“On Cosmic Angels or any of my albums, the emphasis is on song writing and telling a story. I am more influenced by power trios like Rush, Tool and Led Zeppelin. Not one instrument is more important than the other. There is a symbiotic relationship between guitar, bass and drums. The emphasis is not just on the lead guitar melody, but on the band as a whole. Lead melody harmonic variations on repeating themes are strongly utilized; like rhyming phrases in spoken language that allows easier accurate retelling of the original story. This idea of repeating music phrases/themes so the audience can easily recall it and hum it all the way home.” – Kevin Estrella
