North Dakota death metal upstarts Phobophilic stream the entirety of their striking second demo, Undimensioned Identities, at heavily trafficked web-portal MetalBite.com. Set for international release on September 13th via Blood Harvest Records and Rotted Life on cassette tape format, stream Phobophilic‘s Undimensioned Identities in its entirety exclusively HERE.
Hailing from North Dakota, Phobophilic undoubtedly look to the past and present for inspiration, but Undimensioned Identities is a tilted and deranged-enough variant of old-school death metal that it’s clear the four-piece are more focused on looking forward than backwards. Propelled by protean and corkscrewing riffs, the four tracks here are crafted with methodical precision, evoking majestic Lovecraftian horrors and creating cataclysmic maelstroms of madness and rot, while delivering a skillfully enunciated performance with a detailed production that never slips into the brackish sonic murk that’s typical of newer bands schooled on the seminal Incantation sound.
In the leadup to its tape release tomorrow, hear Undimensioned Identities in its entirety exclusively HERE, courtesy of MetalBite.com. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
