phoenix/NEBULIN describe themselves as a (r)evolution in sound that amalgamates the tyranny of reality with the imagination of the insane.
Sounds a little crazy... but we're going to check it out!
We're listening to their new track PURGE/CREATE/DESTROY/REBUILD off of their new album Mainframe.
First thoughts are it's a very industrial sounding dark track, with heavy riffs and that iconic rammstein-esque effect in the background. The vocals however aren't so traditional, with hard female vocal choruses, with a refreshingly light chorus vocal that wouldn't be out of place on a poppier track. Not dissimilar to a few of the more ear friendly Arch Enemy tracks out there.
Some of the more techie breakdowns are reminiscent of some of the work Davey Havok did on the Blaqk Audio tracks.
Overall, there's definitely a nice blend of genres here that would appeal to fans of more punk-rock-ish music as well as all you creatures of the night that can be found in underground rock nights across the world!
