Few bands are as aptly named as Pharaoh Overlord. Few albums are as aptly named as 'Pharaoh Overlord #1'. Since the inception of the trio in 2001, these musicians carved up imposing, yet weirdly cosy monoliths erected in the epic desert of original rock and roll. Pharaoh Overlord's stoner rock klang on the debut is down-to-earth due to sheer weight of the riffs. The light touch and the ease with which Leppänen, Lehtisalo and Westerlund lift the weight of the riffs off the ground and propel them on abysmal orbits works like a magician's trick, a cathartic sleight of hand. In the case of Pharaoh Overlord, the magic endures. 'Pharaoh Overlord #1' is a stone-cold classic.

PHARAOH OVERLORD - HORN (LIVE)

PHARAOH OVERLORD - HORN (LIVE)

'Horn' is a departure from the Lords' trademark motorik doom-kraut style. This is nasty, noisy full-on art rock from the outer reaches of space, like early Sonic Youth tearing it up with Crazy Cavan & the Rhythm Rockers. The album includes four previously unheard ... read more »

Black (ltd. to 350) wax. Falcon (ex-Circle) kicks off by whacking on the table the hit single Beer and Ribs. Strongly influenced by AOR and soft rock, this catchy rocker knocks on the doors of shady radio playlist cabinets. The lowest common denominators and the hottest ... read more »

 

DAWNBRINGER - XX

DAWNBRINGER - XX

This EP drifts on the rolling gloom of the group's previous album, 2014's 'Night Of The Hammer', with a few glimpses of the heavy metal mad science that characterized Dawnbringer's earliest works.

 

MOTELLI SKRONKLE - JUNA

MOTELLI SKRONKLE - JUNA

The 2016 full-length from this unique band that formed in the '80s. The group's futuristic music is gut loaded with penetrating vigour that will make one's energies flow. It is minimalist campfire techno. It is blasphemous arctic groove. It is archaic blues.

 

X_X - X STICKY FINGERS X

X_X - X STICKY FINGERS X

Life's greatest pleasures are often its most fleeting. Witness, for example, the ephemeral run of X_X, a turbulent quartet that tore through Cleveland like a Dadaist cyclone for six months in 1978. Preceding his imminent relocation to NYC, burly, blond brawler John D. ... read more »

Reissued on vinyl with 6 bonus tracks, this is the 1982 EP by the British Channel Islands' very own NWOBHM-purveyors Legend! To put the band in a context, Legend sounded like an unrivalled DIY-produced mix of Black Sabbath-like heavy metal riffs, Pentanglesque vocal ... read more »
