Industrial doom metal band P.H.O.B.O.S. recently revealed the album artwork and other information pertaining to their upcoming release titled “Phlogiston Catharsis”, due out on Transcending Obscurity Records. This will be their fourth full-length album, and as it seems, the more interesting one.
The owner of the label mentioned above, Kunal Choksi proudly states:
I’m ecstatic and overwhelmed to work with a band of the calibre of P.H.O.B.O.S.. It’s extremely rare to find relentless and overlooked projects with that originality. Once a one-man operation for almost twenty years, this now multifaceted entity of perfectionists is back with a vengeance, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. If in the past years we put out releases of Drug Honkey, then this year it will be P.H.O.B.O.S. that will keep high the torch of industrial black/doom metal, with their slab of sick atmospheres. Watch out for their upcoming release on Transcending Obscurity, which will for sure end up on several best of the year lists.
The album was recorded and mixed by Frédéric Sacri at Sapel Lomor. The mastering was done by Greg Chandler at Priory Recording Studios, Birmingham, UK (Esoteric, Cruciamentum, Grave Miasma).
