Remember Pharaoh? Back in 2014, the genius New Jersey-based “depressive hardcore” band released their masterpiece debut full-length Negative Everything on the A389 label to critical acclaim, gifting the world with something unique, harrowing, and unseen which no one in hardcore had attempted before: bending punk rock to the plight of depressive rock to create an abyss of heavy misery that stood completely on its own and sounded like none other.
Shortly after the release of their debut, Pharaoh changed their name to Devoidov, and in total seclusion continued work on their miserably wretched craft. Today we’re proud and honored to bring you the second chapter of this band’s baneful existence, in the form of their brand new full-length Here Lies… – another masterpiece of doomed sonic depression that masterfully blends punk, doom metal, shoe gaze, depressive rock, and hardcore to devastating effects. If you ever thought you’d already heard sad and depressed shit, maybe you should think twice and give this band’s music a spin, because holy fuck, they bring absolute sonic misery to a harrowing climax.
