Phosgore - Warhead
TBM, Industrial Phosgore's new album, 'Warhead', is a strong contender for a club favorite. The first album, 'Domination', was Flo D. performing by himself, and in 2010 he added Sonja to the roster, making Phosgore a two person band. The first album instantly became a club favorite throughout Europe and got Phosgore signed right away to the Pronoize label. 'Warhead' is sure to solidify Phosgore as a band which should be headlining shows, not opening for them. I hadn't heard of them until now, but instantly became a fan after hearing just a few songs.

'Warhead' has 13 tracks on it and is very similar to the 'Domination' album, but is much stronger. Their style sounds like Faderhead, Suicide Commando and Hocico all blended together, but in a much stronger style. "The Beginning Of The End" opens the album with noise which sounds like a Geiger counter going off, and then it jumps into the second song and hits hard.

Tracks 2, 3 and 4 are hard-stomping and will get every rivethead in the club dancing immediately. "Mutilator" starts off more electronic in style, but then hits us as hard as the previous tracks. The songs use a lot of Industrial sounds and vocal samples from all sorts of places. "Panzerfaust Scheissen" is the hardest song on the album and will put the club into a frenzy for sure. The entire album is similar in its hard-stomping Industrial style, with the first track being the intro and the last track being the outro. The last track, "Flatline", is a perfect ending for this album. It has a heart monitor sound beeping and then it flatlines. This is what your heart would be doing after listening, and dancing, to this album. Your heart will race, and then it will flatline from being so exhausted from dancing to the songs.

If Phosgore keeps putting out albums like this, they will never have to work a day job again. With just two albums out, Phosgore is cranking out killer songs that rival acts which have been performing for years and years. People who have never heard of Phosgore, will most likely, as I did, become an instant fan after hearing just a few songs.
