Phallus Dei (one of the most important German industrial & darkwave project of the 90s!!) are celebrating their 25th anniversary with the new album Black Dawn. Combining industrial guitar drones with minimal music, Phallus Dei’s signature elements melt together creating a repetitive, orchestral wall of sound on what is definitely their heaviest, deepest album ever. Featuring guest performances by Merzbow, Peter Brötzmann, Niels van Hoorn and Jacqueline Hamelink .
