As a result of the collapse of a never-ending mind struggle and the supreme influence of universal laws, Pi harness complex energies and funnel them into a matrix of instrumental music imprinted by metaphysics and cosmic sciences.
Founded in late 2015 in Strasbourg, the band is composed of three members from various nationalities and musical backgrounds allowing this equation to take become reality. Members of Pi are: Guillermo González at guitar (Mexico), Guido Pedicone at bass (Argentina), and Ludovic Muller on drums (France).
This triad draws inspiration from the reflection on consciousness and introspection, pleasure and pain, as well as mathematics, alchemy and occult sciences. Thus, Pi generates a heavy core of progressive, extreme and experimental metal surrounded by jazz and fusion.
Amongst its influences, we find a wide array of groups like Gorguts, Opeth, Meshuggah, Tool and Animals as Leaders.
After participating to several concerts in France and Germany, Pi started working on their debut album in order to materialize their vision. The first opus called “Transmutation Circles” was released on October 17th, 2019.
ABOUT THE ALBUM
“Transmutation circles” is the first full length release of the progressive, extreme and experimental metal band Pi. This creation takes its origins in the contemplation of astral phenomenon and their influence on human perceptions and understanding of the world. The pieces of this album have been created with the guidance of numerology and occult sciences and infused with the emotional, physical and spiritual energies of the band’s members.
This work of almost 60 minutes of music delivers: aggressive and massive guitar riffs followed by clean sections and melodic solos inspired by jazz music; expressive, energetic and experimental fretless bass lines using different finger techniques; virtuoso and powerful drums with complex patterns. The concept of this first production is bound by intense and stifling electronic transitions.
“Transmutation Circles” is a record of complex energies at work in the universe and their analogy in our body unveiling the ultimate truth: we are all part of the infinite.
Transmutation Circles was recorded and edited in France by Guido Pedicone at Strasbourg Academy of Music / HEAR, mixed and mastered in Mexico by Rubén Sánchez Zamora at Urvn Studios. This album was released on October 17th, 2019 by Troffea Records.
