Means Of Existence (Slap-A-Ham Records)

By: Jeb Branin

In addition to being one of the most intense live bands I've ever seen, PHOBIA are the cream on grindcore's milk. This new full length is their best showing yet. How do bands who are this good actually manage to get better each time out of the chute? I dunno, but they are faster and more pointed than ever before. This is grind that will bring to mind the early years of NAPALM DEATH. So raw and pissed that it oozes negative energy like a festering boil oozes pus. There is a political theme running throughout the disc that attacks and questions humanities' treatment of other species we share this planet with. Whether you love metal, power violence, noise, crust, grind, hardcore, or polka this is going to be one of your new favorite albums.
