On Dragon's Wings


Just four words for Satriani,, Malmsteen & Vai ... They better watch out!

Every once in a while, there comes along a band that is so different or unique that you would think they were dropped on Earth from another planet. That is the Pyramids on Mars. It is the solo project of guitarist Kevin Estrella. He wanted to do something musically different to stand out from the crowd.

What first catches you is that they are an instrumental band—a combination of elements such as rock, hard rock, industrial, and metal. And then… the lead guitar comes soaring in. Well-crafted, beautiful, melodic phrases are so catchy and memorable that they will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. The guitar has become the “vocals” of the music.


Guitar players like Joe Satriani and Yngwie Malmsteen initially influenced Kevin. But his sense of identity comes from the music he is most passionate about, Baroque, classical music citing influence from musical greats of J.S Bach and Antonio Vivaldi. When you listen to Pyramids on Mars, most guitar melodies are violin.

Kevin recorded, produced, engineered, and mastered his first debut CD, self-titled “Pyramids on Mars” (2013), “Echo Cosmic” (2015) and “Edge of the Black” (2019). He was performing all instruments on the album and all drum programming. He has been capturing the music industry’s attention, getting international radio airplay in the U.S., Canada, South America, and Europe.

Pyramids on Mars is music from the Mystical Red Planet.

“On Edge of The Black and any of my albums emphasize songwriting and telling a story. I am more influenced by power trios like Rush, Tool, and Led Zeppelin. Not one instrument is more important than the other. There is a symbiotic relationship between guitar, bass, and drums. The emphasis is not just on the lead guitar melody but on the band as a whole. Lead melody harmonic variations on repeating themes are strongly utilized, like rhyming phrases in spoken language that allow easier, accurate retelling of the original story. This idea of repeating music phrases/themes so the audience can easily recall it and hum it all the way home.”


Kevin Estrella is a Neck Illusions endorsed artist, alongside Steve Vai (David Lee Roth, Whitesnake) and Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson)
