VIDEO WAVES - PHAROAH "Red Flag"

Like the Egyptian pharaohs of old, these New Jersey rockers have an arresting appearance that includes white make-up and golden hair. Obviously, the band has no problems carrying on the glam rock crusade, but what about the music? The crushing dance beat and vocal harmonies, though out of place, have no problem appealing to their Heavy Metal audience. Still, Pharoah seems content to be a study in contrast. Even if the words are hard to understand, the gimmick speaks for itself.
