Legendary grind merchants PHOBIA are set to scathe the masses with their fifth studio offering, "Remnants Of Filth", on June 5 through Willowtip Records. Produced and mixed by Scott Hull (PIG DESTROYER, AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED) at Visceral Sound Studios in Bethesda, Maryland and engineered by Mike Harrison at Winter Skies Productions in San Antonio, Texas, the CD offers up 18 pile-driving, socio-political grind hymns in 19 minutes. The band — vocalist Shane "The Pain" Mclachlan, bassist Calum MacKenzie, drummer Bryan Fajardo and guitarists Dorian Rainwater and CC Loessin — has crafted one of the most punishing efforts of their winding discography of wrath.
Comments Mclachlan of the offering: "'Remnants Of Filth' is a brutal, in-depth grind record that I feel represents what this band is all about, from past to present. This is total brutal grindcore at its best with nothing less than the 100% punk-as-fuck attitude to compliment what this band is all about!”
