Pyramid Of The Sun

Fire Note Says: Maserati will deeply miss drummer Jerry Fuchs but Pyramid Of The Sun will remember him forever.
Instrumental band Maserati have been cranking out their post-rock meets psychedelic guitar, bass and drums style for a decade now and after the tragic death of drummer Jerry Fuchs last year, the band belabored over finishing Pyramid Of The Sun to ensure that it was a worthy final testament to his legacy. For some, trying to get into an instrumental group is tough but what I always find is that the good ones have the ability to capture your interest right from the beginning and never let it go. That is exactly what Maserati accomplish, as they ease you into the record and keep things concise, evidenced here by not passing the six minute mark until the third from last track, "They'll No More Suffer From Hunger". But even when that happens, Maserati hit you with a scorcher that flies by fast before letting it all go on the eight minute ambient number "Oaxaca". Maserati won't be for everyone but Pyramid Of The Sun is well done and won't disappoint any fan of this genre. It also is the perfect goodbye for their friend Fuchs and regardless of what happens next, Pyramid Of The Sun is an exclamation point on what he loved - blending light and dark sounds, providing melodic and varied song structures and most of all - supplying a good time!
Key Tracks: "They'll No More Suffer From Hunger", "Bye M'Friend, Goodbye", "Pyramid Of The Sun"
