Sounds | Pharaoh Overlord, Without Song All Will Perish


Mijn eerste gedacht was dat ik dit toch wel aan me voorbij moest laten gaan. Electronica à la Kraftwerk/EMB/Italo-pop, dat is wat vergezocht voor mezelf....BIR, toch? Het nummer intrigeerde me echter: ik zit lichtjes te wiebelen op m'n bureaustoel en het ritme mee te tappen. De boodschap is actueel, het geluid donker en de vervormde stem van Aaron Turner (Sumac, Old Man Gloom) geeft een extra touch.

6 verschijnt ergens in november via Rocket Recordings.

"Stoner rock without the stone... or rock!"


Pharaoh Overlord are an experimental band from Finland, featuring members of Circle. Active since 2001 the band's sounds take up a wide-range from stoner rock in their early years to space rock to Kraftwerk-inspired synth rock to even speed metal with 2011's Out of Darkness. Notably the band's lineup constantly shifts players to reflect the ever-changing sound from an initial trio to a quintet or sextet to their 2019 incarnation being a synth-driven duo. Pharaoh Overlord started as a side project in 2001 as a side-project from members of Circle, with Tomi Leppänen, Jussi Lehtisalo and Janne Westerlund.


To date Pharaoh Overlord have released ten studio albums and have performed shows all around Europe despite rarely touring.
