Legendary grindcore merchants PHOBIA today bring their sonic violence to the masses via AOL Spinner. Check out forthcoming new full-length, Remnants of Filth, in its entirety at THIS LOCATION.
Set for public release through Willowtip Records on June 5, Remnants of Filth easily stands as one of the most enraged releases in the band’s iconic discography. With 22 notorious years of charged auditory mayhem under their belts, Remnants Of Filth surges with eighteen socio-political grind hymns in about as many minutes. Produced and mixed by Scott Hull (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed) at Visceral Sound Studios in Bethesda, Maryland and engineered by Mike Harrison at Winter Skies Productions in San Antonio, Texas, MetalSucks commended the band noting: “PHOBIA have grindcore down, playing on the element of chaos that exists between punk and metal and volleying with ease between the two, sounding equally comfortable churning chords over d-beats and acting like machines of war over blasts.” Adds Thrashhead earnestly: “PHOBIA isn’t reinventing the wheel; frankly, they don’t need to. What you get here is grindcore, plain and simple.”
PHOBIA will be spreading their hostility throughout North America this year. The takeover will begin this Thursday at the annual Chaos In Tejas Fest kickoff in Austin with Nasum, Whitehorse, mass Grave and more! From there the band will head to Tampa, Florida for this year’s edition of the Scion Rock Fest alongside Sick Of It all, All Pigs Must Die, Repulsion, Terror and so many more. In conjunction with the release of Remnants Of Filth, PHOBIA will join forces with power violence insurgents Strong Intention for the The East Coast Filth Tour 2012 set to commence June 3 in Detroit and decimate 9 cities.
