RYTE Announce New Album Details and Exclusive Song Premiere Of SHAKING PYRAMID

Release date: January 17th 2020. Label: Heavy Psych Sounds. Format: CD/DD/Vinyl

RYTE – S/T – Tracklisting

Raging Mammoth
Shaking Pyramid    

The Lowdown

Ryte’s debut album is basically the result of an intense one-and-a-half-year writing process (late 2016 - early 2018), which was definitely fueled by a very creative and communal spirit within the band. The album consists of four long tracks which were constructed and developed carefully over time. The flow came totally natural as every member participated equally and contributed their very own personal abilities. The album definitely pushes the boundaries of Psych rock as it is influenced by countless styles of music including Doom, Prog Rock, Jazz and even World Music.

The sound is dominated by down-tuned, sometimes doomy, sometimes epic twin guitars, dynamic and jazzy drums, distorted, playful basslines and spacey Theremin landscapes. Even though vocals are rare they do exist and are done either by Lukas or Arik, while the lyrics refer to freaked-out sci-fi stuff. Production-wise Hannes himself took over the project and recorded the LP at his own rehearsal space. Michael Piller did the mixing and none other than the underground producer-legend Tim Green mastered the album at Louder Studios in California. Convince yourself and give it a listen! Out in January 2020 on Heavy Psych Sounds!

The band have stated the following about the song - "With "Shaking Pyramid“, being the longest composition on the album, we tried to catch a certain doomy atmosphere of the present, interdimensionally connected to the past and future. With almost no lyrics the track tells the story of ancient structures, evoked by alien craftsmanship."
