We recently had the pleasure of announcing Phobophilic's debut album Enveloping Absurdity alongside their first single "Those Which Stare Back." Now the band is back with a second single titled "Nauseating Despair," which really ought to convince anyone and everyone of the importance of Phobophilic. Dudes are bringing their own twisting taking on death metal that incorporates everything from progressive passages to outright neck-breaking grooves.
"'Nauseating Despair' is one of, if not the song we're most proud of on the record and is the best representation of the album as a whole," said Phobophilic in their recent Decibel premiere. "It's about a sudden and extreme self-awareness Sartre describes as 'nausea.' Once you've made this realization about the absurdity of life, there is no going back; it's truly horrifying. In the video, we wanted to express this feeling and the jarring transition toward a state of acceptance through the frantic editing style which continues to build in intensity until the final moments of the song."
Enveloping Absurdity is out September 16. Pre-orders are available here.
