Pharaoh Overlord are the Finnish duo comprised of Tomi Leppänen and Jussi Lehtisalo. They have released a new album called 6 which is out now via Rocket Recordings. According to the press release, the new work is a cataclysmic clash with bewitching results. The band first channelled their love of krautrock-damaged monomania into synth-driven motorik soundscapes on 2019’s “5“, yet this new exploration is a step way beyond into a chilly and captivating electronic panorama.
Beholden to the melodies and textures of Kraftwerk yet also the cinematic austerity of EBM and the effervescent pulse of classic Italo-pop, it’s further abetted by fierce and corrosive vocals from longtime collaborator and Sumac/Old Man Gloom seer Aaron Turner, which stand atop these futuristic serenades not unlike the fevered delivery of a dystopian hellfire preacher.
Listen below and check the playlist with the tracks which inspired their music. It includes Magma, Yes, Popol Vuh, Polvo and many more.
