OUT 2018 - Sept 21st
OUR RATING 84/100
It's great when you're listening a new album of a band and you find somethin'new!
Yes..new, or rather, deeply own! LAST PHARAOH are able to combine the power of classic HM, with the virtuosity of neo-classical parts with thrash drops, sometimes being progressive in accordance with thier complex structures.
The band consists of vocalist Tommy Santangelo, guitarist Ron Toth, bassist Michael James and drummer Ed Shelinsky and their debut album “The Mantle of Spiders" is composed of nine songs.
They start with INTO THE DARKNESS, enhanced by amazing vocal parts; a classic example of classic HM, with a modern and powerful production and stunning neo-classical solo parts.
THE HEADLESS HORSEMAN begins with a long runaway and riffs are sharp blades, while JEKYLL AND HYDE is strong in the same way leaving the door open for neoclassical character of solos.
If DEADLY DREAMS provides first thrash drops, MACHINIC NON-COSCIENCE, goes on in the same way mixing more classics suggestions.
SLAVE TO THE KILL (THE SON OF SAM) opens the door to DESERT DREAMS, a great instrumental where all members can find their whorty space.
The title-track provides an articulated structure, at times almost progressive, while the more classic PSYCHO HOUSE ends in the best way this great platter that we suggest!
