Bury the Light

by Pharaoh
Bury the Light by Pharaoh
Released: Mar 2012
Label: Cruz Del Sur Music
Given their regal melodies, operatic emoting and aptitude for sneaking prog-pomp prettiness in through the castle's back door, you'd never guess this power-metal foursome rarely plays live or that they hail from Philly or that two of them used to be music critics. All true -- and this is one textbook-epic platter of pillage, as consistent as any album by, say, Fates Warning or Metal Church. Excellent forward charge as well, but there's also an ice-cold lullaby hitched on Who-like chords: "The Year of the Blizzard," though if you misread it as "The Year of the Buzzard," that works too
