Legendary grindcore outfit, PHOBIA, release "Decades Of Blastphemy", a discography of +20 years worth of material on SELFMADEGOD RECORDS. The 4-disc digipak discography encompasses most of the band's releases; everything from splits, EPs, 12″s, CDs from 1990 to their 2012 split 7"EP with SUFFERING MIND. The monolithic grindcore pioneer has been a band for over 25 years. Originally hailing from Orange County, California - a less-than-favorable locale for punks as Orange County is often stigmatized by white supremacists and affluent teenagers (as portrayed by the popular television drama “The OC”) - PHOBIA now spreads its grindy, crusty, anti-establishment self across the United States from Phoenix, AZ to Austin, TX. This release is housed in a thick digipak with 4 discs (147 tracks; over 4 hours of music), external booklet with tons of posters, pictures, info and slipcase/O-card.
Just in time for the end of civilization as we know it, old-school grindcore barges back with a vengeance in the form EXPULSION. Consisting of grind veterans Matt Olivo (Repulsion), Matt Harvey (Exhumed, Gruesome), Danny Walker (Intronaut, Exhumed, Phobia) and Menno Verbaten (Lightning Swords of Death), EXPULSION pick up where the dawn of grindcore left off over 30 years ago, with their highly anticipated debut, Nightmare Future. Across 7 songs and 14 minutes of throat-shredding vocals, relentless blast beats, buzzsaw riffs and raw bass tones, EXPULSION will leave you horrified with their vile brand of classic, 80's sickness!
Led by Shane (PHOBIA) Austin, Texas based d-beat squad returns with second full length. 9 brand new songs of brutal and metallic d-beat/crustpunk in the vein of ANTI-CIMEX, DISCHARGE, BASTARD, WOLFPACK, with fair dose of black metal darkness heavily influenced by DARKTHRONE. On “Dawn Of The Apocalypse” the band perfectly blends d-beat catchiness with black metal bleakness. Recorded at Come And Track It Studios and mastered by Jack Control at Enormous Door (NAILS, DARKTHRONE, SEVERED HEAD OF STATE, POISON IDEA). Artwork by Jasper (PHOBIA, NOISEAR, P.L.F., THE KILL, PARLAMENTARISK SODOMI).
