Interview was prepared by OccultBlackMetal (A Different Shade Of Black Metal Zine)

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
Psychophobia is the band established at the beginning of the new century in Świdnik – typical workers city in southern Poland. Our first demo “Promo Accident”  was recorded and self released in 2006 and our first LP was self released in 2012. This year we signed contract with Metal Scrap Records and at 25th June we have released EP “The Fall” under metal Scrap Records label.

2.How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recordings?
It’s a good piece of metal I think, with a lot of influences. In our music you can hear  elements of death, black, heavy and power metal, but we don’t want to put ourselves in any of these boxes. It isn’t very important for us. Psychophobia is just a metal band.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Generally, lyrics are about human condition in the world and his place in the universe. Sometimes the topic is about catastrophic visions of the future and uncertainty what tomorrow brings us in the age of dehumanization.

4.The band has been around since 2002 but so far has only released 2 demo's, a full length and the current ep, can you tell us a little bit more about the gap in between releases?
In those years there was a lot of squad changes. Each of us grew up and started adult life. You know: end of the school, going to college, going to work, try to start a family. The music was on the second place sometimes but we’ve had always stay together.

5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Psychophobia'?
Anything special. Really.

6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?
We was very proud of sharing the stage with Christ Agony and Frontside – big names of polish rock/metal scene, but sometimes the best show is when you’re playing a small gig with bands you are befriended. In our case that will be R.O.D. and Shame Yourself.
