Hollywood are you listening, we just found the best motion picture sound track band in the business, Phobos Corp. Phobos Corp Felicity, The bands debut album Felicity would be an amazing score in any of today’s block buster movies.
Reminiscent of the mega group Evanescence, the new release from Phobos Corp combines heavy musical beats and riffs with a haunting and seductive female lead. Anytime you combine elements of hard core and sultry singing you really have a recipe for success. This is some underground music at it’s finest.
The music & lyrics were written by Spyros Papadakis, the orchestral arrangements by Jon Ong except on the track “Angels in Despair” which was done by Zach Lemmon. And finally mixed and mastered by Dave Chang. This incredible talented and diverse group of musicians and composers has really found a unique niche within the industry. At times I feel like I am at church while listening to Phobos Corp and then seconds later thrown into the mosh pit at a Slayer show, a complete roller coaster ride of emotions.
In 2005 Phobos Corp released their first demo As The Angel Stared, which can be downloaded here.
Fast forward to June 1st 2012 and then band’s LP Felicity is being released worldwide, picking up numerous fans along the way, this reviewer included.
The band is made up of Tara on vocals, Mark Jones guitars and bass ( I wonder how that works live ) and Chris Sutherland on Drums. Together these 3 create a sound that is large, haunting and powerful all at once.
Phobos Corp might not be a band to listen to before bed, or while sitting inside a haunted house unless you truly are a freak. But if you like hardcore music, stuff that gets your blood boiling be sure to take a listen. This is going to be some of my new favorite music to snowboard to as its Hauntingly Awesome!!
