Just found out this:

Transcending Obscurity Records to release new P.H.O.B.O.S. full length

We’re always trying to expand our repertoire and it’s a rare thrill to come across exceptional bands that push the sound in their own twisted ways. We had a different category altogether for such bands in our 2018 label sampler where even P.H.O.B.O.S. contributed a track along with other luminaries such as Veilburner, 0N0, Project Omega, etc. It’s time to reveal the album artwork and other information pertaining to their upcoming release titled ‘Phlogiston Catharsis’.

Label owner Kunal Choksi states, “I’m ecstatic and overwhelmed to work with a band of the calibre of P.H.O.B.O.S. It’s extremely rare to find relentless and overlooked projects with that originality. Once a one-man operation for almost twenty years, this now multifaceted entity of perfectionists is back with a vengeance, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. If in the past years we put out releases of Drug Honkey, then this year it will be P.H.O.B.O.S. that will keep high the torch of industrial black/doom metal, with their slab of sick atmospheres. Watch out for their upcoming release on Transcending Obscurity, which will for sure end up on several best of the year lists.”

Track listing:
1 – Biomorphorror
2 – Igneous Tephrapotheosis

I get that music is subjective, but I'll never understand some of these press releases. Not a fan of this song.

Very excited for this! I had listened to this advance track a few months ago, it's not my favorite but I enjoy it and am curious to hear how it shapes the rest of the album. I had previously thought this band was over with, so very happy to see they're putting out more music.

P.H.O.B.O.S. are the best at what they do. I'm still pissed their 3rd album didn't get a CD release, but I guess I can be excited for this one now. Hoping they bring back some more of the doom and aggression that made "Tectonics" such a masterpiece.
