Search Results for "Pharaoh"

Helios are going to be turning a lot of heads. The tri-state area band was formerly known as Storm Dragon and now is composed of legend Tim Aymar (Pharaoh, Control Denied) , Jonathan Stanley (Mirror Mirror & Bury My Blessings), Eric Rymers (Shiva Stone), Jack Buckholt, and Jeff Loy. They have some scorching new demo material out that already crushes many band’s completed albums. Tim sounds absolutely phenomenal with these guys and the material is complex but accessible for a near perfect heavy metal experience. It is a great blend of technical skill and direct songwriting with sky rattling vocal heights, a super tight rhythm section and crunchy riffs. Looking forward to more! I asked the band how it felt to have things moving forward. Anyone from Priest and trad metal fans to power metal fans to disciples of their previous bands will love this!

“It feels very rewarding! We have worked so hard to rebuild and reinvent the band and we think the addition of Tim did just that. We thank the fans and friends of the band for being so patient through this and we can’t wait to finish the record and play live for everyone!” – Jonathan Stanley.

Cover Art Battle: Stones, Chics, & Nooses

Posted by JDKleinhans on Wednesday, March 7, 2012 at 9:06 AM (PST)

Welcome to Metal Riot’s Cover Art Battle! Every week we try and show the best-of-the-best in metal cover art, ranging from the fantastically illustrated to hauntingly photographed and everything in between.

This is a quieter week but not nearly as bad as that third week in February. Now that was a bad release week. Though Pallbearer‘s Sorrow and Extinction (Profound Lore) was pretty damn good. There just wasn’t a lot of releases. Only two I think. I’m rambling again aren’t I?

Anyway, here it is, this week’s top seven covers left for you to vote on (they’re all multisyllabic band names!): Cult Cinema, Diabolus In Musica, Hail Spirit Noir, Heidevolk, Hellsaw, Pharaoh, Xandria.

We can’t divine this shit, so get your asses moving and get to voting! Here!
