RAMESSES: New EP Now Available

The bludgeoning slow-motion trancending-doom trio RAMESSES, who feature in their ranks the former rhythm section of ELECTRIC WIZARD, have just released "The Tomb", a three-song colelction of "super-heavy doom". Containing the cuts "The Tomb", "Cult of Cyclops" and "Omniversal Horror", "The Tomb" was recorded and mixed by studio legend Billy Anderson (MELVINS, OM, ASVA, FANTOMAS, MR. BUNGLE, HIGH ON FIRE, SLEEP) during Halloween 2004.

With stunning CD art by Adam Richardson, the disc also includes a previously unreleased 11-minute bonus track entitled "Unholy Outburst #3", recorded — once again — by Billy Anderson but mixed in the Invada studio by Paul Horlick and Stewart Matthews. This track sees RAMESSES whipping up a totally improvised jam, and "fusing early '70s rock with cataclysmic earth moving drone," according to a press release.

The limited-edition 12-inch picture disc (limited to 666 copies) includes the three new tracks plus two RAMESSES classics, "Witchampton" and "Black Domina", as well as a poster, both designed by cult artist The Gasface.

RAMESSES were formed after Tim Bagshaw (guitar) and Mark Greening (drums) left ELECTRIC WIZARD and joined forces with Adam Richardson (bass, vocals), to form a more experimental, devastating and horrific form of free heavy doom rock.

RAMESSES have previously released two seven-inch singles, a split CD, and an enhanced CDEP with two full-length videos.

"The Tomb" CD and 12-inch are available now on RAMESSES' web site.
