Legendary grindcore outfit, PHOBIA, release DECADES OF BLASTPHEMY, a discography of 25 years worth of material--some previously unreleased--on MELOTOV RECORDS! The discography, which will first be released as a 4-disc CD collection this year in 2015 and available on vinyl in 2016, encompasses all releases, including some previously unreleased material; everything from splits, EPs, 12″s, CDs from 1990 up until their most recent "Grind Core" release on Deep Six from 2014. The monolithic grindcore pioneer has been a band for as long as Melotov Records’ self-proclaimed “head bitch”, Melanie, has been alive. Originally hailing from Orange County, California--a less-than-favorable locale for punks as Orange County is often stigmatized by white supremacists and affluent teenagers (as portrayed by the popular television drama “The OC”)--PHOBIA now spreads its grindy, crusty, anti-establishment self across the United States from Phoenix, AZ to Austin, TX. It’d be easy for such a nomadic band to go on a “permanent hiatus”, but vocalist (and founding member), Shane “The Pain” MacLachlan has a socio-political bone to relentlessly pick with the world. Since the first inklings of their anarchistic tendencies, the grind-crust quintet has questioned all facets of authority, covering an array of topics of their 20+ years from veganism to institutional racism. It is PHOBIA’s ability to produce intriguing, intellectual, and succinct lyrical content against the violent, break-neck-white-knuckle musical backdrop that is grindcore that has kept them relevant for literal decades, and a founding staple in the punk/hardcore community in general.
