Pyramaze

Pyramaze is a Danish/American band, originally formed by a trio of Danes and later enlisting two Americans to complete the initial lineup (later, a fourth Dane signed on), and have three albums to their name. The band is solidly in the progressive/melodic power metal realm, delivering punchy, melodic anthems laced with prog touches. Vocalist Lance King (no longer here, though he sang on their first two releases) has served time with a number of standout bands, and his Geoff Tate-inspired vocals surely lend a professional air to the band, but he is not the only star, as the musicianship is top-notch throughout. The arrangements are busy but not cluttered, with plenty of interplay between the keyboards and the guitars, with the able rhythm section keeping pace. In the space of a few years they've made major strides within the prog/power metal genre, and are an easy recommendation to fans of that style. The band has featured three noted vocalists in their career, with King, onetime Iced Earth frontman Matt Barlow, and former Tad Morose (and current Bloodbound) singer Urban Breed also here for a time.
