The Parisians of the industrial doom metal band P.H.O.B.O.S. reveal the track “Igneous Tephrapotheosis” from their next album ‘Phlogiston Catharsis’.
‘Phlogiston Catharsis’ will be released by Transcending Obscurity Records on September 10, succeeding Atonal Hypermnesia (2012).
ABOUT ‘PHLOGISTON CATHARSIS’ ALBUM
Dark and hypnotic, P.H.O.B.O.S.‘s much awaited full length after their split with Blut Aus Nord and a standalone EP titled ‘श्मशान काली’ is genre-bending exercise for the French band. ‘Phlogiston Catharsis’ contains eight tracks of highly atmospheric industrial-tinged black/doom metal that are both visceral as well as sonically compulsive. These throbbing, sludgy tunes are atavistic in their heaviness but at the same time forward-thinking in their expression. Taking the best elements of black and doom metal, they concoct a form of music that possibly no other band can claim rights to. Their sound is singular, ominous and game-changing. It’s the soundtrack of impending doom.
The cover was made by Synckop, who has worked with Merzbow, Isis, Neurosis and Deafheaven.
‘Phlogiston Catharsis’ was mixed and mastered by Frederic Sacri at Sapel Lomor. He was mastered by Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios in Birmingham, England.
