In the spring of 2008, two new friends, Nate Harris and Dan Covey, came together to collaborate on creating a version of a song that they thought would be perfect for metal, Phantom of the Opera. After a few practice sessions, Nate brought in guitarist Dan Sontag and bassist Chris Sposito and they finished an instrumental version of the song. After coming together to play their schools talent show, they decided to form as a true band and chose the name Pyramidium.
During the summer of the same year Pyramidium began writing their first songs, each one getting more and more complicated than the one before as their individual influences came to the surface. While summer came to an end they started playing small clubs around Buffalo as an instrumental band, but soon implemented vocals into their set. Stepping into the studio for the first time, they recorded their debut album Alternate Reality Machine from the winter of 2008 into early 2009 with Doug Griffith of Calamity from the Skies.
After completing most of the album, they decided to bring in a female singer to add yet another dimension to their unique music. The process of finding the right singer took a few months but was worth the wait and the album was finally complete as singer Jessica Stewart added her beautiful voice to the tracks, contrasting the harsh vocals of Nate and Covey.
With recording finally done, Pyramidium was able to play more and more shows around Buffalo, including a recent show with the grisly MUSHROOMHEAD, while gaining some recognition and fans. Around this time, Jessica joined the line up as a full-time member and also handled live keys. Pyramidium is currently playing paid shows around Buffalo at venues such as The Tralf and The Town Ballroom while they prepare new material for the recording of their next work this summer, which will be darker, grimmer, and more majestic. Pyramidium is currently seeking a record label.
