New Pyramids (w/Nadja) album....

From Pyramids:

Let me explain further. This guy Pyramids With Nadja is like a massive collaborative effort between Pyramids, Nadja and a number of otherwise established musicians. His instrumentation might be described as an energized ambient, infused with an intelligent ear for avant-garde metal and an almost indiscernible adherence to a sort of pop sensibility. PWN is the kinda guy who would successfully meld the still unparalleled compositional methodology developed in Pyramids' "s/t" album with Nadja's trademarked dirge-like shoegaze on a record and then chalk up the favorable outcome to the fact that all members of Pyramids (f. coloccia, m. dean, m. kraig, r. loren, d. william) and Nadja (Aidan Baker & Leah Buckereff) perform on all four tracks on the record.

And his friends... His friends are all well-known artists, such as: Simon Raymonde of Cocteau Twins and This Mortal Coil (performs bass on track one and four), Albin Julius of Der Blutharsch (performs vocals on track four), Chris Simpson of Mineral (performs vocals on track two), Colin Marston of Dysrhythmia and Behold the Arctopus (co-produced/engineered track one) and James Plotkin of Khanate, Khlyst, O.L.D. Phantomsmasher (mixed and mastered the entire album). And if that weren't enough I heard he knows Ulver and Lustmord (each band remixed the track, "Into the Silent Waves," for a limited ancillary product) So, how can I, just one man, compete with a dreamboat captained by a crew of such diverse and artful virtuosos like Pyramids With Nadja (drum roll)... I couldn't possibly... because when all is said and done, Pyramids With Nadja is a far more suitable mate for my girlfriend than I could ever be... he's clearly better with friends and family, his creativity exhibits a natural flexibility, and you know what, thats ok... I want her to be happy.

Pyramids With Nadja Tracklisting:
1. Into the Silent Waves
2. Another War
3. The Sound of Ice and Grass
4. An Angel Was Heard to Cry Over the City of Rome

Could be one of the best releases from this year...
