Today is the official street date for PHARAOH‘s “Ten Years” CD Ep… without wasting time to rave more about the details and track listing we have already described profusely in previous posts, we have reached guitarist Matt Johnsen for an exclusive interview regarding this Ep and some anticipations on the band’s new full-length, tentatively scheduled for the fall of 2011…
“Ten Years” EP is finally out, what are your feelings about it, and how do you think it can preview the material on the upcoming new album?
The EP does not, really, preview the fourth album at all, since everything on it was written contemporaneously with the songs that appeared on Be Gone. We knew, even before we hit the studio for that album, that we had too many songs for a single LP. Read more “PHARAOH “Ten Years”: an Interview with Matt Johnsen”
Cruz Del Sur Music is proud to announce the opening of the pre-orders for PHARAOH’s “Ten Years” CD EP. The orders are already being shipped, while the official release date is set for the 10th of June 2011. It actually took a long time to get this EP out, but the wait has definitely been worth, as testified by the early press’ opinions collected so far:
“The six songs on the Ten Years EP are a strong representation of just how excellent the musicianship of Pharaoh is. Truth be told, I wish this was a 12 song album, Pharaoh hammers out their one-of-a-kind sound that well…[…] Pharaoh plays their American-made Power Metal with relevant muscularity, with melodic moments flourishing throughout their sound. One Metal constant about Pharaoh is their ability to sound raw and tough, with an old school sensibility.” Metal Odissey Read more “PHARAOH “Ten Years” CD EP on PRE-ORDER”
