Editorial Reviews

Grandiose and inviting, "Be Gone" out-classes its predecessors, and few heavy metal groups have ever sounded as erudite as PHARAOH does, ripened from a decade of intense work together. PHARAOH's third album features songwriting that is at once complex and

4.0 out of 5 stars A traditional metal kick in the teeth October 8, 2011
Format:Audio CD
2008's Be Gone is the third album from Philadelphia-based traditional metal band Pharaoh. Like fellow Pennsylvania-based traditional metal crew Icarus Witch, Pharaoh is one of the stronger, and more power-oriented bands in what's come to be called the New Wave of Traditional Metal scene.

Be Gone isn't too far removed from what Pharaoh did with Longest Night, but the band obviously continues to hone their sound, which starts with a foundation based on Judas Priest, Accept and Iron Maiden and incorporates elements of power and thrash metal. This is the kind of modern metal album that can appeal equally to fans of the classic `80s bands as well as bands like Iced Earth and Nevermore. The guitar work is fierce, and Tim Aymar (of Control Denied fame) does a great job on vocals. The production is the only real issue, as it doesn't quite do these songs justice.

If you're a fan of traditional metal, power metal, or just heavy metal in general, Pharaoh is a band that is well worth hearing, and Be Gone is a great album to start with. If you like what you hear, you may also want to check out some other "under the radar" bands like Ancient Creation, Core Device and Seventh Calling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough that I want to hear more Pharaoh January 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD because I was familiar with Tim Aymar's vocals from Control Denied, and I was curious to hear what he's been up to lately. Be Gone turned out to be a very enjoyable CD, and one of my best "blind buys" ever. I'd classify this as Power Metal, but it doesn't have the high, clear vocals and constant high-tempo common to a lot of European power metal bands. The music on this album remains varied and interesting from beginning to end, featuring tempo changes, powerful rhythms, catchy melodies, and tastefully applied solos. Finally, the vocals, while powerful and understandable, are just raspy enough to meld with the music and complete the package.

This is a good metal album, and I'd recommend it to fans of Savatage, Iced Earth, Manowar, and other American-style power metal bands. I'll definitely be buying more Pharaoh in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'll Always Love The Cover Art January 1, 2011
By OzzyApu
Format:Audio CD
What drew me in, personally, was the cover art. The lush vegetation growing favorably with the classical stone structures adjoining the sea and sky paints a perfect, peaceful picture. The music itself flows naturally, without a care in the world while still following the same formula as before. The album isn't as epic as the previous album, but it definitely has more substance than the debut. The atmosphere is more refreshing than before, and the production hasn't changed much, but it's still the Pharaoh I love at heart.

Aymar for the third time straight wails perfectly with that distinct, grainy voice of his. Most power metal vocalists are high in style, but Aymar truly gets the manly wail down. His dryness keeps the music more on the deep end, provided that the bass is doing its job properly. The Longest Night featured some fantastic grumbling, and here its much of the same, really. It adjusts itself to the atmosphere of the album, so it's more noticeable than the debut, for sure. Bass follows the guitar riff, but that extra sandy layer makes the grumble worth the effort.

For the third time in a row, you have to give it up for Black, who still manages to play with smashing briskness while still not being able to complain about having low drum bass mixing. Honestly, how can he just sit back there and go through all the trouble of annihilating on the drum bass when you can just barely hear it? If they don't get this problem fixed by the next album, then I'll complain to Aymar my goddamn self.

Guitars are especially cool in lead and rhythm departments - moreso than before, actually.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very excellent, if, sadly, very underrated, power metal February 15, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Pharaoh are one hugely under-appreciated American power metal band. No, they might not have quite the same level of musical chops as some bands, as they lack Dragonforce's muscular blast and thrash beats, and also are missing the excellent (and highly contagious) riffs of a group like, say, 3 Inches Of Blood. But dang it, the Pennsylvania-based quartet do have chops aplenty. So while they might not riff as well as some bands and aren't as brutal as various others, they can solo with the best of them. (And that means they solo as well if not better than every power metal bands out there -- and that is not just counting new millennium ones or American ones.)

As is found out upon repeat listens to their third full-length album, 2008's "Be Gone," Pharaoh craft songs that are filled with irresistible and outrageously infectious guitar harmonies and air-guitar-worthy solos that are every-bit-as memorable as the songs' choruses. In fact, the listener even finds him or herself looking forward to hearing the guitar interplay (which comes courtesy of six-string ace Matt Johnson) more than anything else. It is always well-on par with the classic power metal records kicked out by, say, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Cacophony. Of course, Pharaoh has worked with Chris Poland (of Megadeth fame), and King Diamond guitarist Mike Wead, and the influence from both of those bands shines through on "Be Gone," too. (And a handful of other, obvious sources of inspiration include Iced Earth, Cynic, Edge Of Sanity, In Flames, and Accept.) All told, the above-named guitarist might have an extremely common name, but his guitar work is anything but average. In fact, to put it simply, it is positively outstanding.
