New from Sige... Pharaoh Overlord

The awesome label that is Sige just put up pre-orders for the new Pharaoh Overlord, Lunar Jetman.

Edition of 500, 100 black 400 clear.
"Lunar Jetman excavates Pharaoh Overlord's monolithic lineup of the previous decade’s live recordings. With the avant-wizard Hans Joachim Irmler (Faust) onboard, the crossfire of turbulent frequencies jolts the Lord's vacuum-sealed riffcraft on an incalculable orbit, where the restraint and bleakness vaguely resemblant of blues evolves into cathartic bursts of thrashing improvisations and moments of serenity. There is nothing ornamental in the menacing austerity of this album."

Track Listing:
Palmyra Call
Black Horse
Cave Of Hair Pt. 1
Cave Of Hair Pt. 2

The recently completed “Lunar Jetman” serves as the perfect introduction to those unfamiliar with the previous works of the Pharaoh, and also as an expansion upon the greatest aspects of their back catalog for those long devoted. In observing their crafty movements through fields of interwoven harmonies, skittering dissonance, psyched up power chord mantras and lurching doom, it would appear that the Overlord’s power has only increased with time and experience. In the hands of those lesser skilled the command of such territories could prove disastrous, but over the Jetman’s five tracks, the band manages to unite all these ungainly sounds under one bold banner of cosmic gold.  A single trip through the interplanetary realms of the Lunar Jetman will prove even to the most seasoned traveler that there are many universes yet worth knowing...
Pharaoh Overlord is comprised of members of Circle, Steel Mammoth, Split Cranium, Plain Ride, etc. They are from Finland. This is their seventh full length album. Features keyboard contributions from Faust’s Hans Joachim Irmler.
