Joining Deathfest from Montreal, Canada, this four piece death metal band can only be described in one word: crushing. The quartet plays death metal in the vein of Immolation and Deathspell Omega, music that is meant to crush the listener into dust. Phobocosm formed in 2008, but didn’t release a full-length until 2014- the follow up was released earlier this month. Hey, perfecting crushing, oppressive, bleakness takes time. This is Phobocosm’s first MDF appearance.
