Pharoah Chromium casts a thick synth-spell on Chromosphere, having paid close attention to the likes of Conrad Schnitzler. With two full-side pieces, Chromium conjures up ancient monoliths and deep space in equal measure. The album is pressed to a lusciously surreal picture disc in a limited edition of 300 copies.

On a super-trippy false colour picture disc lies some super-trippy music for super-trippy.. trippers? Not the usual kraut-y fare that Deep Distance peddle, Pharoah Chromium’s arcane use of synth explores the far reaches of space by barraging your mind with psychedelic, dream-like sequences and squeals.
At times it’s extremely challenging, setting off on a legible course before wandering off on a dissonant flurry of jarring notes. Very suddenly, a tangy Tangerine Dream synth texture that you can almost taste emerges, but before you can get a good chomp the record’s meandered off into uncharted regions. This is pretty bonkers, totally out there, and I kind of wish it would stay in one place a little bit longer but that’s coming from an ambient person so is kinda meaningless here. For warlocks, witches, gremlins, and androids.
