One Question Interviews: Pharaoh

Pharaoh

SPB: To what extent does ritual/tradition/mythology play a part in Pharaoh's music?

Pharaoh: We met and grew up for the most part in Catholic schools together. Every day as kids we prayed with everyone else before class, got dragged to church, sang the songs. Drinking blood and eating flesh between math and study hall. They don't try to hide that they're indoctrinating you at that age, they tell you, “We are indoctrinating you according to your parents' wishes,'" and you pretty much go along with that until you graduate or are expelled. So mythology and ritual has been our every day.
