PHOBONOID | ORBITA [ITALIAN INDUSTRIAL BLACK/DOOM] REVIEW BY LUKE HAYHURST

375188

Hailing from Italy comes Lord Phobos, the man behind solo project Phobonoid.

Released through label Dusktone, Orbita is the debut EP from this Industrial Black/Doom project and opens with Phobos and so begins a twenty minute quest of the most complete and putrid darkness you are ever likely to experience. Whether this is truly metal I’d say is debatable. What is beyond repute is that this bleak landscape created through a relentless beat from a drum machine mixed with a swirling, seething mass of blackened moods, vibes and atmospheres is very impressive. With almost whispered, malicious vocals rising like a predator from the mists and gloom, Lord Phobos snares you in his tangled web of clogging, thick, almost pungent nocturnal horror.

Orbita is a truly nightmarish experience, a savage grinding monolith of vitriolic desolation and despair!
