THE PHARAONIC DEAD

THE RA AL DEE EXPERIENCE ALLOWS NECROS CHRISTOS MAINMAN MORS DALOS RA TO INDULGE HIS LOVE OF CLASSICAL PERSIAN AND INDIAN MUSIC – BUT AS TERRORIZER FINDS OUT, IT’S MUCH MORE THAN JUST A SIDE PROJECT

RA AL DEE EXPERIENCE

Mysticism has always played a huge role in extreme metal. Okay, maybe not so much for those at the end of the spectrum obsessed with the whole gore’n’guts carnival but in Necros Christos’ case, it actually is the very axis around which their whole concept was based upon. And the more straight-forward their music got, the more complex its lyrical and conceptual content grew, with the many ethnic instrumental interludes they’ve snuck into each of their albums/EPs ever since their debut demo back in 2001 playing a far more important role in the process than just some kind of gentle interlude. So, since Karl Sanders already choose to focus on the ambient and Egyptian elements in Nile’s music on his two solo albums, one shouldn’t be that surprised to finally see Necros Christos main man Berlin-based Mors Dalos Ra using the same tactic as well. Except that for a start, Ra Al Dee Experience ain’t a solo thing per se but a collaboration with percussionist Ben Ya Min Al Dee, a former student of his. And far from being a sudden folly, as it turns out he’s been exploring those acoustic eastern alleys for almost a decade.

About Terrorizer Magazine

I love reading Album Of The Year features and it’s always fun compiling them – generally because they are often a great reminder of all the great albums that have come out over the last twelve months, as well as providing an opportunity to see how much in agreement we are all in here at Terrorizer HQ when it comes to displaying our own individual musical tastes. I’m sure you’ll read somewhere how 2016 has been a weak year for musical output, I read such articles every year and have done for as long as I can remember, but taste is in the ears of the beholder and frankly I reckon 2016 has provided some quality moments. I write this on the first day of hearing the new Metallica album as well. We didn’t get to hear the album prior to release – it would appear that someone in the band’s Ivory Tower didn’t consider the Terrorizer readers worthy of having a review in this issue. A shame really, and consequently the album hasn’t made our AOTY list. Rest assured that everything else that HAS made the list has been lovingly enjoyed for more than one measly advance stream anyway. We always try and keep things real at Tezza HQ. So who did make the Number One spot? Turn these ‘ere pages to find out! That’s also why you’ll find the mighty Crowbar on our cover. One of the most reliably heavy and honest bands out there – Kirk’s in mighty fine form and it’s a pleasure to have them on our final cover of the year. We hope you enjoy the story behind their new album and why he and Todd are back backing music once again. Here’s to a storming 2017! Adios Darren Sadler
