Colossal-sounding doom-laden death metal. Keep replaying and it's like walking toward a black monolith to find that it's covered with intricately hideous carvings. Colin Marston's incredible mix repays -- no, demands -- huge volume.
Favorite track: Fallen.
Phobocosm offers up a fresh batch of titanic doom laden tracks. Their wall of sound remains but thanks to Colin Marston's magic it now comes with flourish and nuance.
Favorite track: Tidal Scourge.
Montreal's Phobocosm has returned from the abyss with another offering of oppressive and ambient death metal. The band's newest album, Bringer of Drought, is an exploration into uncharted darkness. A deeper and more intense experience than its 2014 predecessor, Deprived, Bringer of Drought features 35 minutes of soul-reaping, doom-infused death.
Mixed and mastered by Colin Marston. Bringer of Drought will be unleashed May 13 on Dark Descent Records.
A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
