Phobocosm is back with their first new record in seven years Foreordained due out December 8, and new single "Infomorph" streaming right now. Foreordained wraps up Phobocosm's trilogy of albums started by their 2014 debut Deprived, and by all measures should rule given this first single.
"When we wrote Deprived, we decided that our first three albums would be a trilogy, so Foreordained is the last chapter of that trilogy," said Phobocosm guitarist Samuel Dufour. "We made a conscious effort to pace all three albums in a similar manner, since we wanted them to be linked – starting with a slow, crushing doom song and concluding with a long, epic, depressive one. It's not a coincidence."
Dufour continued: "Since death is unavoidable, the end of all life and of our planet is also unavoidable, so there are apocalyptic themes also. The closer 'For An Aeon' is about a possible way the world as we know it could end."
Foreordained was mixed and mastered (as well as partly recorded) by Xavier Berthiaume, and given artwork by Lauri Laaksonen (Desolate Shrine, Convocation, Pestilent Hex). Pre-orders are available here and here in Europe.
