Southern California grindcore veterans Phobia have produced a virulent 17 track affair in a 14-minute span, making their latest release UNRELENTING an album truly worthy of its title. Finding a middle ground between crusty D-Beat (“Life’s Animosity”) and ferociously spastic grind (“Sign of Times”), this long-running unit has had its share of lineup changes through the years, yet their vocal shredded velocity-fueled brevity remains unfettered by the changes (“Dying for Who?”) and sounds as feral as ever (“Rehashed”, “Out of Control”). If you need a brutal soundtrack to break faces to, look no further than this band to get the job done.
