MP3 of the Week: Black Pyramid "Warswine"

With a rattling echo that conjures a battle cry skittering off the walls of a great Viking hall, Andy Beresky's repeated wounded howl of "War! Swine!" at the 4:20 mark of this eight-minute epic is a sound to behold. Off a Serpent Records split 12-inch with Kentucky metal duo Old Ones, "Warswine" works as a sampler of everything that Beresky's Northampton doom crew BLACK PYRAMID do right -- punishing fretwork and low-end stuttering riff yawns, sure, but also multiple dynamic shifts, fist-pumping vocal-anthem blasts, and chasm-bridging lead breaks that flicker and lick your ear like fire flares bursting out of a gurgling lava trench. Let BLACK PYRAMID singe your cochleae this Wednesday at Allston's Great Scott on yet another crucial Born of Fire gig that'll see them share the stage with Valkyrie, Earthride, Elder, and Phantom Glue. Meanwhile, you can grab the "Warswine" MP3 below.
