Viennese band Phal:Angst’s quite quirky signature sound is taken to the next level on their fourth album Phase IV. Since the band’s foundation in 2006 this unique blend of electronic industrial and post-rock has made the band hard to classify but highly individual.
The mood is generally dystopian and melancholic, however some sunny spells occasionally break the gloom. As before, you will not find any standard song structures, but tracks that take their time to develop, grow, mutate and tilt.
Visuals turn the band’s live concerts into intense multimedia performances. For these films Phal:Angst use found footage-, cut & paste- und rearrange-techniques and original material.
Phase IV will be released on gatefold-double-LP, digipack-CD and as digital download on 28th September 2018 through Bloodshed666 Records. Watch the video for the track ‘On the Run’ here:
