P.H.O.B.O.S. - Anœdipal (2008)

Full Length, Megaton Mass

Genre: Industrial Doom Metal
Region: France

P.H.O.B.O.S. have a new album coming out soon called "Atonal Hypermnesia" which should be a nice treat no doubt. Until then this is their second full length delivering more dark, disturbing and slow industrial heaviness.

Again their sound is quite unique — P.H.O.B.O.S. really are like a combination of The Amenta or Godflesh with Khanate, and how could that not be excellent? A bleak, spacey atmosphere blankets the winding and deliberate riffs, black metal tinged vocals and the foundation of trudging industrial drumming. Most of the 6 tracks end in some ambient and industrial loops/samples and all of them hit the 8-9 minute mark. Anœdipal is devastating and hypnotic and like Tectonics a bit challenging, though a little less varied (it feels and flows much like a concept album). Don't pass it up.

In 320. (There's a good chance this will get taken down at some point from the looks of how scarce links are for this album around the net).

  1. Yeah nice, I was looking for this for ages, I already bought tectonics for the same reason, but I prefer earing this kind of record before blindly buying it.

    Thanks a lot !
