Staff review by
Second band from Tunisia I am reviewing, Phobia plays a very melodic death metal, metalcore and deathcore are mentioned by the band as big influence, and since I know absolutely nothing of these two subgenres I'll stick to a more conventional melodic DM view. The EP's name is Itinerary.

Throughout Itinerary, the rhythm is constantly kept flowing. The whole is continuously heavy, which is quite normal for the genre. The songs are well performed, "Unavoidable Torment" and "Out of Control" are my favorite of the lot, "Unavoidable Torment" being quite atmospheric and having a nice keyboard outro. As a matter of fact all the four songs deliver heavily guitar wise, it's rhythmic and catchy exactly like it should be. Although the band is apparently very influenced by Lamb of God, some lead guitars here and there vividly remind me of Necrophagist for some reason.
