Secret Pyramid Profile

Secret Pyramid is the solo project of Vancouver-based musician Amir Abbey, whose previous output includes “The Silent March,” a cassette-only release that we’ll be reissuing on vinyl in early 2014. “Movements of Night” finds Abbey refining and developing the haunting, faraway soundworld that earned the aforementioned cassette well-due praise. “A Descent” opens the record, and its title aptly portends the dirge-like drones and throbbing cycles of low-end that are offered up to the listener. Throughout the album, Abbey masterfully navigates the properties of sleep and unconsciousness, charting a course that is equal parts harrowing and funereal, tranquil and sublime.

Abbey proves particularly adept at juxtaposing the everyday with the obscured, and this is evidenced perfectly on “Closer,” with half-there melodies and arcs of hazy guitar histrionics that seamlessly dissolve into “To Forget,” a track that posits a more familiar, tangible atmosphere in which radiant drones are tethered to a driving bassline, recalling perhaps a lost 70’s Popol Vuh Herzog soundtrack. “Escape” closes the album on a nostalgic note, akin to the feeling one is confronted with when waking from a wondrous dream which he knows he cannot revisit. With “Movements of Night,” Abbey casts his net into the abyss of the unconscious and returns with a potent paean to the dreamworld.

"Movements of Night," the debut full-length by Vancouver-based Secret Pyramid, which channels the ghosts of Popol Vuh and Flying Saucer Attack into dronescapes that will resonate with fans of [ Sunn O))) ] and [ Stars of the Lid ]. Minimalist journeys through static debris and processed guitar form the blueprint to this side project hailing from Vancouver. The dense new age grooves on Ghosts and The Silent March are a fitting sonar trigger to your calming reverberations through cosmic fog, dripping vocals and mystic drones.
