Biography

There is more than one artist known as The Pyramid Scheme.
1. A band from Wellington, New Zealand.
2. A Rock band from Dallas, Texas

1. The desperate throngs begged for a revolution. They swore and swore they could take no more! They grew tired of the dismal derivative, they gave up on ‘new ideas’, they saw through the borrowed swagger…

SO! The Pyramid Scheme summoned the forgotten energies of an ancient underworld, whipping and taming up savage rhythms into fresh vortices of tornadic proportion!

The Scheme struggles majestically against the heft of its own sound - barely contained. Wave upon wave, swell upon swell, the complex fugues emerge howling from the heaving forces under their spell; a steady and sustained colossus of sound erupting over the dance floor.

Rapacious percussions, devilish horn parts and diving bass create a seething maelstrom. Salvo guitars and voodoo chants entwine with billowing six-part vocal harmonies. Syzygies! Gasps! Explosions! Hypnotic possessions and unholy electrical powers…

Bequeath your estates because there’s no going back.

You’re on a slave boat now, and there’s a volcano on it.

Bow down to the Scheme.
For what is unleashed can not be contained.

2. The Pyramid Scheme is an American rock band from Dallas, Texas. While they describe their sound as simply “rock,” elements of hardcore, progressive, and ambient that comprise their latest EP launch this independent band into a category all their own. The Pyramid Scheme is known locally for their energetic live shows, comprised of both improvisational jams and a tendency of going absolutely crazy while playing the last song of a show.
