PHOBOPHILIC SIGN TO PROSTHETIC RECORDSAug 12, 2021
Prosthetic Records is proud to welcome death metal four-piece, PHOBOPHILIC to the label roster. Hailing from North Dakota, the band have two demos, an EP and a split already under their belts, and have commenced work on their debut full length which will be released in 2022 under the Prosthetic banner. The band will be playing a short run of dates supporting Gatecreeper later this month - full details are below. Of their signing to the label, the band commented: "Prosthetic has been home to many bands that were the stepping stones for us discovering heavier and more underground music. To now be part of the roster feels like a real full circle moment. The material we’ve been working on for our Prosthetic debut is without a doubt our most extreme and authentic yet – we can’t wait for everyone to hear it!" With lyrics inspired by Lovecraftian horror, PHOBOPHILIC’s abrasive explorations of existentialism and the limits of human consciousness are a welcome feature of the currently thriving US death metal scene. The influence of death metal’s forefathers is evident in PHOBOPHILIC’s full throttle output, but their gaze is fixed firmly on the future - wherever it may take them… Stay tuned for more news on PHOBOPHILIC in the coming months, and catch them with Gatecreeper at the below shows in the meantime.

Prosthetic Records is thrilled to announce the signing of Maryland trio, YATRA. The band has recently been in the studio working on their debut release under the Prosthetic banner, the follow up to 2020’s All Is Lost long player - which took a turn away from doom and dived headlong into an old school death metal vibe. YATRA will hit the road later this week for a run of dates - including a string of shows with High Reeper - full dates are below. Of the signing to Prosthetic the band commented: “We are very happy to be working with Prosthetic Records, and super excited about this new album that we have just recorded. It is our best album yet, and a crucial step for us in the evolution of YATRA as a band, in the darkness of this changing world we are living in. “ Since their inception, just four short years ago, YATRA have released three full length albums; their appetite for quantity may be voracious but they haven’t compromised on quality. Their take on sludgy death metal is served up blackened around the edges. Stay tuned for more YATRA news in the coming months.
