- #1 by Pharaoh Overlord
10/10 Jonny Chinchen 20th July 2016
This is it, it's really here at last! Available for the first time on vinyl, thee undisputed best stoner rock album of all time. Rivalled only by the preposterous schwagger of Monster Magnet's Spine of God, #1 by Pharaoh Overlord takes you on a longboat trip around the coastlines of Northern Europe, berserking and pillaging as you go.
For long periods, though, it's all about the savage and primal rhythms that keep you rowing in tandem with the other warriors, the sunset warming your endeavours and giving expansive views of the sea and the mountains in the offing. Birds circle overhead, briefly calling as they recognise the mutual wavelength of the hunter and soul survivor. Or perhaps it's just reverb and guitars?
Listen to the 3rd track. 8 minutes of time, endless expanses of it, beautifully composed and serenely waiting. Suddenly, at just the right moment, the tempo quickens, and the flower blooms and opens, pollen is released and we are utterly intoxicated by the vapour, breathing in the delicate wild beauty for the first time, gone again in an instant.
A must-have for all fans of magic, vikings and wildlife.
