“Weltenbrand” is the title of the new PHOSPHOR album. With passion driven musicians the album quickly gets to the point and delivers emotions of joy and harshness throughout the 13 tracks.
This is the bands second release; their last debut "Raum / Zeit", delivered harsh vocals in the German language and the band is consistently pursuing new ideas without convention or limitation.
The band is supported by guest musicians Simon Rippin on drums (Fields of the Nephilim, The Eden House) , Shir-Ran Yinon on violin (New Model Army, Eluveitie, Haggard) and Antje Dieckmann (Patenbrigade: Wolff) on vocals. Weltenband promises dark melodic yet catchy riffs and Phosphor have successfully created a varied and complex album. It is heavy, ruthless and more powerful than their previous release.
PHOSPHOR have created a much darker, more infectious atmosphere, which was deliberately set in relation to the title "Weltbrand" and its content.
"Change" is the theme of the new album. The constant change in everything around as is explored as is death and resurrection. The awareness of oneself is determined by changes in each individual’s life both on an incremental and large scale with reference to global catastrophes or momentary political-social developments.
"Weltenbrand" is an album full of deep passion, aggressiveness and apocalyptic depth. It shows hope and the possibilities presented in light of every change.
May the world burn in the phosphoric fire ...
