|RAMESSES TAKE THE CURSE Limited 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set + 7 Inch
Ramesses were spawned in the woodland of Dorset, England. They have been disfiguring the innards of their army of devoted listeners since 2003 when drummer Mark Greening and guitarist Tim Bagshaw hooked up with Adam Richardson (bass , vox). In the intervening years, Ramesses have ripped an incurable wound in the metal scene with killer live shows around the UK and Europe.
Take The Curse is a shattering expression of cruelty where Ramesses' bleak sound finds an accurate counterpart in the Chapmans' grand vision of suffering. In nauseating detail, the music and the artwork dredge the turpitude of humanity and explore the utter horror of possibility. Prepare to be engulfed by torrential riffing!
On Take The Curse, mournful harmonies are the backdrop to the ever-increasing influence of The Occult on the band. Although a riff tsunami remains the centrepiece, the Ramesses sound is refracted through even more circles of hell – of dirge sludge, of rhythm, of Lucifer himself. Grim melodies, blistering spaced-out guitar solos and atmospheric samples add depth to the tracks and display the band's eclectic traits and 70's influences.
In visiting new progressive and experimental territory, Take The Curse will enthral newcomers. At the same time, dedicated fans will be reminded of the drubbings that Ramesses visited upon them before. Bristling with malevolence, Ramesses' crushing grooves induce a hypnotic lethargy: weighed down, beleaguered and enveloped by doom. While the percussion/guitar/bass/vokills set to work on your viscera, your head is forcibly plunged down the rabbit hole and drenched in heavy psychedelia.
