Pyramids With Nadja - An Angel Was Heard To Cry Over The City Of Rome
You know Pyramids. You know Nadja. You know I'm a freak for both of them. I had stupidly high expectations for this collaboration. And this is the first time ever, EVER, that my expectations for a supposed-to-be-awesome collab have been met. IT'S ABOUT FUCKING TIME.
This is an album of epic beauty, a majestic world crumbling, a dark forest with floods rushing through, an avalanche charging down the mountainside. Crushingly magnificent ambient metal gaze noise.
Truthfully, this review was just an excuse to post the last song on Pyramids With Nadja, "An Angel Was Heard..." That song is fucking stunning. I can't believe how gorgeous it is. Listen to it and be convinced that the people who made this record are gods.
