Biography

Pyramaze started in the winter of 2001 in Hjordkær, Denmark when Michael Kammeyer left his former band, Damion. After the split, Michael took a short break from music to clear his mind, gathering new inspiration. After a few months, the idea of writing a complete self-financed album of his own material formed in his mind. The following months were spent in intensive song-writing mode, and by the summer of 2002 Michael found himself with enough material for a complete album. The time had now come to find a name and the ideal musicians for this new band. It was then that Pyramaze began to take form.

The line-up
He didn’t have to look far to find the first two musicians, as local drummer Morten Gade Sørensen and bassist Niels Kvist immediately jumped on the opportunity to join Michael in his quest. The next person to sign on was American keyboardist Jonah Weingarten, who Michael had met over the Internet. The newborn band began rehearsing the written material on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean: the Danish guys on one side, and Jonah in the U.S. They sent demos back and forth combined with many phone conferences as part of the creative process. With a core band around him, Michael then booked the studio to record the debut album. He hired on the well-known producer Jacob Hansen, a man with a long list of fantastic productions behind him, ranging from Hatesphere and Mercenary to Manticora and Falconer, to name a few.

    I think the new album is excellent. A nice evolution of an already great band. "The Battle Of Paridas" and "Fearless" are my favs

    Disciples of the Sun is very Evergrey-sounding, but quite a remarkable album all the same!

    Barlow is a great singer, but I think King is the perfect fit for their style. I really love The Legend of the Bone Carver, both lyrics and melody-wise. It's truly a masterpiece. I wished that there was another album with Lance King.

    Definitely one of the best power metal bands around. Too bad they are extremely underrated.

    Melancholy Beast is their best IMO. Lance King’s voice was so perfect for their sound. [2]

    There is absolutely no point to this band without Kammeyer. It will be an insult to record under the name Pyramaze without that guy. It's a shame Immortal sounds so compressed. It would've benefitted from more time in the mixing stage.

    A mi gusto, una de las pocas bandas interesantes de todo el Power Metal; Melancholy Beast es tan excelso... un diamante en bruto en la peculiar y monótona escena del Power Metal.

    Melancholy Beast is so fucking good. All of its elements are excellent, especially the keyboard work. It has an atmosphere like no other.
