The time has come to unleash "Possessed By The Rise Of Magik", the eagerly
anticipated, brand new full length from the widely acclaimed metal alchemists,
Ramesses. The "Chrome Pineal" LP unearthed an even more experimental side to Ramesses, whilst "Possessed..." takes these more progressive tendencies into a whole other realm, and they sound all the more refreshing for it. The album begins with Ramesses' trademark retro doom rock on the tracks 'Invisible Ritual' and 'Towers Of Silence'. As the album unfolds, the music slips into a slow psychedelic groove, revealing spell-binding psyche-folk melodies, most affecting on the tracks 'Duel' and 'Safety In Numbness' which, together with the 11+ minute eponymous monster are amongst the stand-out tracks on the album. Enormous churning riffs and soaring mournful guitar harmonies still encase the album, with rasping horror versus dream-state vocals, and ancient ceremonial yet savage drum beats that could summon demons from the very depths of hell.
