End of the 2016 brings YOUDASH’S debut album „Astrophobia” under Deformeathing Production flag.
After many years of activity, two EPs and a number of concerts the band has mastered breaking down the barriers during the creative process. The terms like „convention”, „frames”, „styles”, „limitations”, „calculation” are not the point. There is only an absolute freedom of creating the sound.
„Astrophobia” includes eight compositions (7 original tracks + a surprising cover version of a piece by Acid Drinkers, featuring Uappa Terror from Terrordome) lasting 38 minutes as a whole.
The author of the album cover is Rafał Wechterowicz (collaborated with Machine Head, Slayer, Metallica, Slash).
Piotr Szafraniec/Archart Studio is responsible for the graphic design (collaborated with Trauma, Decapitated, Lost Soul).
Additional keyboards and samples were recorded by VX the Mind Ripper who also collaborated with Atrophia Red Sun, Naumachia and Thy Disease.
The album was recorded in Studio 67 under the watchful eye of Dominik Burzym (responsible for the sound of the albums by Mord’A’Stigmata or Atrophia Red Sun).
For fans of: Gorguts, Car Bomb, Gojira, Meshuggah, Dillinger Escape Plan, Naked City, Mr. Bungle.
"Remember the exact moment of awe and jubilation when you heard Dillinger Escape Plan, Meshuggah or Mr. Bungle for the first time? By listening to Astrophobia, you will experience the sum total of those respective moments and witness the birth of something transcending and overtaking its sonic relatives". Anton/Nine Circles
"These compositionsare biz-onkers. Not only do the tech death portions rip through some truly righteous riffs and drumming, they also purposefully derail into some strange and uncharted territories that rarely detract from my enjoyment. Variety is the spice of life, and with Youdash the spice flows freely." MetalTrenches.com
