With three full lengths and an EP under their belt, German death metal project Phobiatic are almost ready to release another. Founded in 2008, Phobiatic boats members of other projects like Warfield Within, I Despise, and Fake Idyll. The death is strong with these other projects as well.
The influence of death metal giants like Suffocation, Origin, Cryptopsy and Dying Fetus are heavy amongst their discography, but don’t let statement form a bias against them. Phobiatic offer their own flavor of technical death metal, but don’t think for a minute that their complexities take away from the brutal foundations of their music.
When I asked drummer Kai Bracht about Phobiatic’s upcoming release, he said that they’ll still offer a high level of technicality, but are bringing other metal influences into their material.
Their newest jams are currently in their mix/master stage, but for now, you can catch Phobiatic’s three previous LPs and their EP, as always, on their bandcamp. I’m stoked to hear what goodies they’ve got cooking and we wish them the best of luck with their hunt for a record label worthy of their material.
