Phal:Angst – Whiteout, January 13th 2023
What an eye candy!
The artwork was designed using photos by Kurt Prinz. These pictures were partly featured in the book Sezierte Architektur (dissected architecture), which was the initial release of Text/Rahmen publishing house. Again, another connection to Noise Appeal Records.
But, what’s inside?
The music on Whiteout bears the hallmarks of the very individualistic, if not idiosyncratic band. There are no songs in the classical meaning of the word, instead there are gooey, cinematographic sound epics which meander through various moods. These are frequently dystopic, melancholic, but also hyperharmonic with a distinct tendency to romanticism.
