Inspired the by the studies of UFOs, aliens and the artifacts of in our solar system, PYRAMIDS ON MARS is an embodiment of spacey music that brings both worlds together as both a musical concept, and message to the world of the alien presence. Formed in 2011, PYRAMIDS ON MARS is the solo creation of guitarist Kevin Estrella who offers an aural palette of intense, emotional, 3-dimensional, heavy and melodic progressive rock/ metal that includes a range of influences such as classical music from Baroque composers J.S Bach and Antonio Vivaldi along with today's guitar virtuosos Yngwie Malmsteen and Joe Satriani.
Kevin's musical style is very similar to world renowned rock guitarist Joe Satriani. So much Kevin has nicknamed himself the "Satriani of the North." Of course Satriani is a huge influence on me," he says. "But he (Satriani) does more of a bluesy thing. I am more influenced by classical music. I absolutely love Baroque. Baroque classical composers J.S Bach and Antonio Vivaldi are my biggest musical influences and a complete paradigm shift for me, the way I think about melody and harmony that is. I spent 3 years in fact, studying classical guitar. Mix my classical influences with all the bands I grew up listening to like Rush, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Ministry, Pink Floyd for example and bands like Meshuggah, I am a blend of it all. And much more.."

My dream custom guitar is being handed to me by these Greys (Extraterrestrials). The design on the neck is what captured my attention. But how could such an elaborate design be put on the neck of a guitar? Three days after the dream, Neck Illusions and I found each other on Twitter. A very important synchronicity.
