"They have a structured but still jammy approach, as the Sabbathian beginning of “Lucifer” unfolds topped with psychedelic guitar effects swirl, and a crisply layered production that results in a fat, front-of-the-speaker kind of sound."
"The whole album is one massive jam-based exercise in noise and volume and when Brain Pyramid unleash the noise they become a more frightening prospect in the realm of Stoner/Psych Rock. Brain Pyramid add elements of 60s/70s based Psychedelic sounds and noises which gives this album an adventurous and exciting feel to it."
"Capturing the spirit of jamming out in the country-side and lathering it up with some toothy distortion and sweet-finger licks, there's a lot of unruly and vibrant energy coursing through the album as it riffs and rips all over the place."
Ride with the Devil
"At times it feels like one massive glorious jam but throughout there is an enterprise and inventiveness which just as potently leaves senses basking and passions greedy. If the album is your introduction to Brain Pyramid, be prepared for one ruggedly spellbinding ride."
The Ringmaster Review
"With more emphasis on the ‘heavy’ part of the ‘Heavy Psychedelic’ genre come France’s face-melting trio Brain Pyramid with an album full of free-flowing thick heavy riffs, warped out guitar bending, and masterfully crafted songs to unite acid droppers and dope rollers the world over."
"Everybody into the hippie period of the holy CATHEDRAL, digging the weedy down tuned riffs of ELECTRIC WIZARD and fuzzed out 70s Prog Rock from Italy will love the new album, "Chasma Hideout", by BRAIN PYRAMID."
Doom Metal Front
"Here we go with a real trippy act. Brain Pyramid from Rennes, France play a mixture of psychedelia and stoner rock resulting in a cosmic explosion upon the senses. The riffs, the fuzz, the distortion and spacey vibes really come together into one unified vacation of the mind."
"Damn, these guys rock hard and are tight as a knot with mercury bursting levels of energy. And the cosmic edge is a treat too. 70s Hard Psych Rock fans will pop-eyed drool over Lainé’s guitar work, which shine’s all the brighter against the solidly anchored rhythm section of Grall and Gautier-Lorenzo."
"French psychedelicists Brain Pyramid are a heavy trip. Owing more than they’d like to admit to Black Bombaim, whom they have shared the stage with, this lot are a much funkier proposition and channel a psych that was more relevant in the late 60’s. There is also a strong undercurrent of Parliament style funk too, which adds to the often time travelling feel that Chasma Hideout delivers."
