Phobia's Decades of Blastphemy, a 4-CD collection spanning 20 years' worth of the band's discography, is out today in the US on Melotov Records.
Decades of Blastphemy features over 150 tracks of pure Phobia grindcore, originally released between 1990-2010.
Phobia, now almost 30 years deep, was founded in Orange County, California, by Shane MacLachlan. To any grind fan, the Phobia name holds a special kind of weight, representing a veteran band that has maintained its intensity and realness through the decades.
Phobia has shared stages around the world with the likes of Chaos UK, Napalm Death, Mayhem, Voivod, Deicide, and Neurosis. The band plays two Southern California shows in March.
March 25 - Pomona, CA @ PBW w/ Nomads
March 26 - Los Angeles, CA @ Los Globos w/ Victims
Melotov Records boss Melanie Voltz calls Decades of Blastphemy the label's "crowning achievement." Based in LA, Melotov has released music by ACxDC, Old Wounds, Tidemouth, Gatecreeper, and more.
Selfmadegod Records is handling the European release.
