Another average year
Posted on January 3rd, 2013
So, another year is passing by, cherry coke and pizza pie, and I like it, as the old pop band Mutts from Lund once said. Now as the year is over it´s time to try and sum up what has been going on in the Pyramido camp. Well, here we go.
In 2012 we continued on our mission to become the Agathocles of sludge, or slow rock as we like to call it. The result was three split records, so now we only have about 150-200 to do before finding us right up there at the top with the kings of mince. The records we released was shared with old mates and new friends. The first split of the year was a 7″ with our friends in Usurpress from Uppsala. The one in charge of this release was Kob Ola of Plague Island, there are still plenty of copies left, so don´t be shy… The super-ultra-mega-whoopiegoldberg-doopie-limitied-edittion-release of this one included a bonus 7″ where you can hear our take of the sXe anthem Fed Up by Judge. This song was the first one we ever recorded by ourselves, and most probably also the last one. Luckily enough our bff Matte P, also known to us as a little less smart Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, polished the digital turd and turned it in to an epic masterpiece.
Split #2 was a small part of a bigger thing, so to say, huh? We were invited to participate in a series of 7″ released bu an Irish label called HellComesHome. 24 bands, 12 7″ split records, de-luxe box, special art-work etc, yep, of course we wanted to do that. Our song ended up on a split with Union of Sleep from Germany. Our song being the slowest one we have done so far teamed up with the fastes one they´ve ever written. They are sweet guys, check them out!
And the last release this year was also the biggest one, a split LP, wo-hoo! This one is shared with Amarok, a kinda heavy doom orchestra from the U$ of fkkn A. On this release there was a whole bunch of labels involved, actually, there were so many that I can´t remeber them all. But if you´re living in the US you can buy it from OrcaWolf, and if you´re living in Europe I suggest you tap in the adress to Bisaufsmesser and order it from there. Or just click the link, wuddeva…
So, I guess it goes without saying, there will be NO split releases for a while, insted we will try and build the confidence to release a record of our own. More about that later.
We did play a few shows this year, though not near as many as we would have liked to play. That kinda sucks, but hey, we still have time to conquer the world (some of us more time (Viktor), some of us less time (Wendel, DanDan, DanArne, Ronne. Or as I like to call them, the old fkkrs). We started 2012 with a kind of tour that we´re not quite familliar with, a support act tour as opener to Lock-Up. Bigger venues than usually, and more people. And on this tour we had the BIG PLEASURE to get to know the other support act, Gadget. Gadget is a so called Grindcore band. To learn more about this genre just click the link. If you don´t have the time I´ll explain it real quick. Grindcore is about playing fast on the drums and play riffs on the guitar and bass guitar that is impossible to hear. The band that invented grind, and also the fastest band ever, is Gut. Well, Gadged turned out to be a bunch of, hrm, interesting characters and we hit it off without any problems. The short tour, five shows, was a blast and the best time was spent at Ronnies mums place in Värmland where we stayed for two nights, drining coffee and watching the famous Swedish comedy show Macken while spooning on comfy campingbeds. Our good friend Klarinetten was with us on this tour which as always was a big pleasure. He really is the sweetest guy we know, he also have the most fragile body we ever have witnessed.
In April we took the bus and drove down south to Germany, Switzerland and France where we played 10 shows. This time we thought that Ronnie could take some time off from driving and brought our newest family member Nicke Borg (yes, the singer of Backyard Babies) as tour-papa. Everybody instantly fell in love with him and we sure do hope to be able to travel with this straight forward crust clown again. Nicke, du är ok. The shows on the tour were fine and we all had a good time even if we all got pretty sick on this rather short visit abroad.
We played a bunch of other shows as well and when it comes to playing with some more well-known band this was the year. We managed to play with Lock-Up, Gadget, Danava x2, Saviours, Victims, Black Breath x2, EyeHateGod, Nasum, Skitsystem, Graveyard and a Greek garage band that nobody heard of. Yeah, we did get to play some really good shows this year.
And now? Will 2013 be a year of good times? We hope so. A new full-length record will be released this year. When? Don´t know. But we will tell you when plans are coming together, full transparency is, as always, important. We have learned that the only way to achive something in this world is to set goals and this is what we´re gonna do. And we´re gonna set them high. Sometimes dreams come true, like they did for Graveyard. When they started that band they said one day we´re gonna get big enough to have a former member of Satanic Surfers as a roadie, and this year it happened to them. So, kids, never stop beliving!
And yeah, what are our dreams, what are we hoping to achive? Peter Apelgren as a support act, what did you think?
A big thank you to EVERYONE that helped out making this another good year in the Pyrauniverse, we never stop getting surprised that there are so many sweet persons out there. No one mentioned, on one forgotten. A big non-corporate hug to all of you!
See you in 2013, take care dudes and dudettes!

A Small Update
Posted on July 4th, 2012
Ok so the secret show we wrote about in last post is now official!
We have been picked by Nasum to open for them at KB in Malmö on the 5th October along with Black Breath and Skitsystem! It’s gonna be a blast(pun intended)!
A medium update
Posted on July 3rd, 2012
Just a few words to let you know what´s going on.
The split with Usurpress is out, and has been so for a little while. You should support KOB-Ola of PlagueIsland and order a copy or two from him. His website is down for a while so contact him through Facebook (a social network site designed for making it easy to stay in contact with old friends that you don´t really care about).To listen to our contribution, follow this blue text (when clicked, purple)
The split with Union of Sleep was released last week and can be bought through HellComesHome. We´re very happy to be a part of this 7″-project, so hats of for Joel for asking us to join in! If you wanna hear our song from the split you can do so here.
Our upcoming split-LP with our new friends Amarok should be out soon. This LP will se the light in both Europa and the USofA. As soon as the cover is ready it will be sent to the pressing plant so expect it to be available in a near future. Yes, we will let you know.
Usually we try to make a longer tour this time of the year, but this summer we couldn´t make that happen. It´s not that we don´t wannna go on tour, trust me. But some of us have to do some good ol´working and it was hard to try and sync our schedueles. We have some news though, the 2nd of August we will play together with a band called EyeHateGod in Gothenburg. Maybe you´ve heard of them, if not, check them out. Good quality rock-music. Yes, we are really looking forward to this one. New shirts will be printed and we will bring both new 7″ splits to this show, so bring your money, cause we need them kinda bad. And why is that, you might ask yourself. Well, we can´t tour this summer, but we can write new songs. And we need your money to be able to record a new album some time in the beginning of next year! More about that later on.
Hmmm, that´s all for now I think. We will play a show in October as well, but for now, we can´t tell you more about that one. You see, it´s a secret.
Hang loose, dudes and dudettes. And remember to visit your local library, summertime is readingtime!
