Vanhelgd Announce New Album, Temple of Phobos

temple of phobos

Swedish blackened death metal band Vanhelgd announced the release of their fourth album, Temple of Phobos

Temple of Phobos is being released in Europe by Pulverised Records and in the US by Dark Descent.

The Swedish masters of aversion and forlorn VANHELGD returns with an even darker aspect of Death Metal surpassing what is deemed traditional and into the realms of blackened Doom Metal with “Temple Of Phobos”.

While still firmly locked into that unmistakable VANHELGD sound, it is clear that on “Temple Of Phobos” they have steered into a much more despondent territory; very reminiscent of the early Nineties Doom. VANHELGD have managed to capture the essence and vibe with such perfection on “Temple Of Phobos” that perhaps this will go down in VANHELGD’s history as one of their heaviest, gloomiest and blackest record ever.

Recorded and mixed at Studio Underjord with Joona Hassinen (Year Of The Goat, Saturnalia Temple, Ocean Chief, etc) and mastering duties by Tore Stjerna at Necromorbus Studio (Watain, Repugnant, Desultory, etc) and once again gracing the ominous artwork by VANHELGD frontman Mattias ‘Flesh’ Frisk (Ghost, Entrapment, Vampire, etc).

Released by:
Dark Descent Records & Pulverised Records

    This would be good if it wasn’t boring after the cool 20 second intro.

    “The Swedish masters of aversion and forlorn VANHELGD…”

    Hahahahaha what the fuck does this even mean?

      Ah, I figured it out after listening to the promo track: extremely bland C-grade death metal.

      1. Yep. Boring as hell.

  3. old school ANUS says:

    It’s like an on the sidelines death metal commentary on old death metal.

    Sounds good to my ears, so will eventually buy the vinyl. I enjoyed the “Church of Death” and “Relics of Sulphur Salvation” Lp’s enough to own them, and thanks to this article, discovered I am missing other Vanhelgd releases.
    Cheers big ears !
