September 22, 2017, a year ago
Melancholy Beast, the classic debut album from Pyramaze will be reissued on CD/digital on November 24th in Europe and North America through Inner Wound Recordings. The album was originally released in 2004.
The re-issue includes an extended 20 page booklet that features track commentary and album history written by Pyramaze guitarist and founder Michael Kammeyer. The reissue also includes the bonus track "The Wizard" that was originally only included on the Japanese edition of the album.
Michael Kammeyer comments:
"Dear fans of Pyramaze and all things metal! It’s time for the old to become the new! Our highly praised debut album Melancholy Beast is up for a re-release. Originally released back in 2004, the album has had a good run, but has become increasingly hard to obtain in the stores over the last years, due to obsolete record contracts and label changes. While the new Pyramaze stuff continues to gather new fans around the world, the old album(s) have also become highly coveted by the growing Pyramaze fanbase. Therefore it is with great pride and joy that I can announce the signing for a re-release with Inner Wound Recordings. The album has been updated with track commentary, album history and new band photos inside the booklet. Also for the first time outside of Japan with the bonus track ‘The Wizard’.
“This should be a real treat for any Pyramaze fan. While I myself am no longer an active member of Pyramaze, I still follow the guys closely as a friend and fan of the new releases. I’m also still handling the business decisions regarding the three first albums. And this release has been in the planning between myself, Pyramaze and Inner Wound Recordings for quite some time. Finally it’s a reality, and on behalf of Pyramaze, Inner Wound Recordings and myself I hereby announce that Melancholy Beast 2.0 will be out in Europe and North America on November 24th. Metal greetings, Michael Kammeyer (ex-Pyramaze captain/guitarist)."
Melancholy Beast was mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Amaranthe, Evergrey).
