Pharaoh Overlord – #4 [2006]

Pharaoh Overlord #4 is the fifth album by Finnish experimental rock band Pharaoh Overlord.

It represents a dramatic shift away from the instrumental stoner rock of their earlier albums in favour of the heavy metal direction also being explored by their sister group, Circle, at the time. The only member of the 2005 line-up of Circle who did not regularly feature on Pharaoh Overlord releases before this point, Mika Rättö, guests here making this a Circle album in all but name. Newcomer Jussi Kangas provides vocals and plays lead guitar.

This album also introduced a new band identity of Pharaoh Overlörd, influenced by the Amon Düül / Amon Düül II split. The metal-oriented Pharaoh Overlörd would release its next album in 2011, titled Out Of Darkness. Meanwhile, Pharaoh Overlord’s (without umlaut) next album was of abstract improvisation, Siluurikaudella.
