2 stars Pharaoh Overlord's fourth album ventures to the brutal realms of 1980's oriented heavy metal riffs. The compositions still have the philosophies of menacing repetitive hypnotics, but instead of first record's vintage acid rock aesthetics, these stoner riffs are dressed upon the easy riders flying on their choppers towards the sunset. If you like later records of Budgie, classic Motörhead and open heavy jam music like Earthless, this side of Pharaoh Overlord's production phases might please you. Compositions, production and playing are all done in very professional manner, so the enjoyment is a question of taste preferences certainly. I personally liked their more sacral live performances I had seen and more traditional stoner / avant-garde recordings.
