Austrian Extremists Release Clip For “Hardwire”
Austrian industrial mob Phal:Angst are set to unleash their brand new video for the stunning “Hardwire”. Set to be released in tandum with their upcoming new album “Black Country”, the band have worked tirelessly to build a name for themselves in their native Austria and are setting their sights on bigger game this time round.
A stark and frightening clip, the band had this to say regarding the clip: “The first video to the new Phal:Angst-Album “Black Country” is to the song “Hardwire” and it was shot in the legendary viennese café/bar “Café Stadtbahn” which enjoys a perfect reputation with local bohemiens, (sub)cultural people & heavy drinkers. So, a perfect ambience for Phal:Angst.
Also note the sign for “Kat’s Caravan” which was a regular event there and refers to the legendary radio show by Jim Lowe & John Peel. The “story” of the video is social alienation, boredom, voicelessness but also a gloryfication of slowness. It might not be a coincidence that this one comes out of the city of Vienna, well known for it’s morbidity, leisureliness and psychoanalysis. It took the viewers of the testscreenings usually about 5 minutes to start asking themselves “what the fuck?!”
At the end all questions should be answered.”
Phal:Angst is an Industrial/Post-Rock-Band from Vienna/Austria. Formed in 2006, they sit between Industrial, EBM, Post-Rock and Doom; taking influence from bands like Earth, Mogwai, Coil, Front 242 and Neurosis.
