Emerging from the Spanish town of Seville, the mysterious collective known as Pylar employ the violin, mandolin, french horn, and keyboards to create their singular mix of slow metal, ambient music, and psychedelia. The chimaeric nature of their music (along with their desire for anonymity) has drawn comparisons to similarly unclassifiable bands like Portal, Blut Aus Nord, and Oranssi Pazuzu.

I spoke with guitarist/keyboardist Bar-Gal about what brought the members of Pylar together, and how the listener should experience their music. We also discussed the literary works that inspired Pylar's latest release, Abysmos, as well as what to expect from the final part of the trilogy they started with their Horror Cósmyco album.

My thanks to Bar-Gal for speaking with me, and to all of you for listening.
