PHOBIA’s ‘Generation Coward’ Out Now on Willowtip Records / EP Streaming

Generation Coward, the new EP from undisputed grindcore kings PHOBIA, is out now on CD, digital, and vinyl formats via Willowtip Records. Visit the links below to stream and/or purchase.


Formed in Orange County California in 1990, PHOBIA has been punishing ears with their murderous sociopolitical grinding noise assault for a full decade. Dealing out their savage combination of the energy and ideals of hardcore punk mixing it with the power and brutality of early grind, PHOBIA has shared the stage with a diverse mix of bands over the years such as CHAOS U.K, GRAVE, and NAPALM DEATH.

"30 years in, these Orange County grind-punks are as furious as ever. A scorching blast of contempt at modern music fandom and online culture."
- Kerrang!

"Bursting at the seams with jagged, breakneck rhythms and brutally animalistic vocals, this EP is a seething mass of proof that Phobia have lost none of their speed or vigor in the three decades since their formation."
- Invisible Oranges

"Absolute raw brutality. There is nothing more you can do when listening to PHOBIA than to strap yourself in and take the mauling." [9/10]
- Metal Temple

"Jaded and snarling grind. Generation Coward proves the band to be just as pissed off and angry as ever."
- Dead Rhetoric

"A quality band making quality chaos."
- Last Rites

"Generation Coward brings the mosh together from across all areas of the fast underground in a no-nonsense, pit-ready fashion."
- Pinnacle Music Group

"A savage selection of vitriolic grindcore tracks. Phobia have an impressive discography that stretches out over three decades, and if you haven’t heard them before then this EP serves as an appropriate starting point."
- Indy Metal Vault

"Another dizzying EP of politically charged grind. Phobia remain determined to keep moving, undeterred by the changing music landscapes or whatever trends are in vogue."
- Heavy Music Headquarters

"There’s so much to love about the vomit-inducing album, so choke it down and be grateful to Phobia for it."
- Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life

"One of the best grindcore acts in the world!"
- Grind On The Road

"Toxic, grimy and slimy, the grind has arrived. The music is as close as it gets to pure punk grind. No experimentation. No changes."
- Metal Bulletin

" Classic hardcore punk influenced stuff that wrings necks and doesn’t get carried away with death metal techniques or self-indulgent experimentation."
- Grizzly Butts

"One of the great legends of the world Grindcore scene. For a self-respecting grindcorehead 'Generation Coward' is simply not to be missed."
- All Around Metal

"Proper grindcore at work. By the time the sixteen minutes were up, I was completely out of breath, sweating profusely and wanting more."
- Welcome to the Metal

"Phobia continues to crush the bones. There is no mercy here."
- Arrunderground Metal
