    Piramida is undoubtedly the band's most immediate work to date and it might be strange to be writing it, but nearly each and every track would work standing on its own.

    Here's a band on top of the world, and on top of their game. [Oct 2012, p.98]

    This see-saw, between exquisite gloom and bruised hope, is part of what makes Piramida so powerful.

    This is the sound of a band once again setting a course for personal creative development and revelling in its every ambitious step.

    The result is an record of rare beauty, like catching a glimpse of an uncommonly beautiful sunset or a finely crafted ice sculpture.

    Knowing the story behind Piramida's recording process does not ruin the horror movie or give away the ending. It does, however, adds a plotline to the wordless emotions the tracks evoke.

    Destined for the 'obscure, kinda interesting' slot come end-of-year list time.
