Mighty and threatening thunders from the Bulgarian capital Sofia ... fatal cause:
EUFOBIA hail with their important third studio album brute and martial in the ears! This extremely determined disc is clearly created with gallons of the most rebellious heart and with immense compositional joy. And you can clearly hear the massive further development of the THRASH DEATH METAL troupe.

Fact is: absolute artistic openness prevails here in all conceivable musical matters. Contemporary baptized with the programmatic and socially apt album title "Madness", these indomitable hell souls reveal the successful striving for artistic identity. Fortunately successful: EUFOBIA show on their 'new' a very own face! 



Outstanding specialty of the much-cursing death horde in all their new creations: brutally aggressive, technically adept and really fat guitar assaults! Heaps of razor-sharp riff canonades are to be experienced, which not infrequently ignite as quickly as a giant tank filled to the brim with fresh kerosene.

And also with their capably handled lead axe, EUFOBIA conjure wonderfully massive earworm moments out of the boxes again and again. Remarkably fit in instrumental interplay, noticeably skilled in the passes and with gigantic enthusiasm at the start, the flaming world critic quartet stands out from many competitors with its new furious output.

Performing with martial and at all times confidently hewn rhythmic earthquakes, the truly bone-crunching and edgy drum work on this superbly crafted release is by no means left behind either: for the drumsticks of the fierce rhythm kettle-keeper Blago hammer on his cauldrons as fast and nimbly as gigantic, ultra-heavy demolition hammers. 




In addition, the sinister Balkan flails fire razor-sharp words in the most authentic and truthful way on their new output with welcome provocations:
biting lyrics straight from the dirty and dusty street. Singer and guitar monster Niki doesn't give a damn about compromises in content and fights on "Madness" with incredibly effective and uncompromising throat attacks.

With "Madness" EUFOBIA show the worldwide rest of the scene that even nowadays it is still efficiently possible to hammer acutely into the epicenter of the Death Metal profession with a lot of self-confidence and burning fervor. (Markus Eck)


EUFOBIA has produced a new music video for the title song "Madness", which is the first single of their third album. The video was created by Val Volegna of 12 Drops Design. The lead role is played by the Bulgarian model Maria Georgieva. The story of the video is about a group of survivors in a world, which has been destroyed by a nuclear war, who try to save a girl trapped in a radioactively contaminated area:

FLASHBACK:
The memorable band name of these Bulgarian THRASH DEATH METAL command is of ancient Greek origin and literally means 'fear of good'.

EUFOBIA was founded 2003 and no band member has ever been replaced since, which is pretty rare to find nowadays.

These musicians are in any case a very own formation. The emphasized independent, intense sound of EUFOBIA is just as individual as interesting structured and full of variety, even in the abysmal, manic emotional passages. Every song by the guys therefore can stand completely for itself.

During the summer 2018, EUFOBIA worked on the music video for the song "Cyber Pervert", which is presented the world since September 17th 2018. The title is so self-explanatory that nothing needs to be explained about the lyrical, socio-critical content.

Besides, the members also diligently write new songs for the fourth album, which is expected to appear between spring and summer of 2019.

So far EUFOBIA have performed live more than 180 (!) times and shared the stage with well known acts such as Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquillity, Rotting Christ, Kreator, Vader, Immolation, Onslaught, Malevolent Creation, Pyogenesis, Gorgoroth, Sinister, Broken Hope, Dragonforce, Eluveitie, Keep Of Kalessin, E-force, Negura Bunget, Suicidal Angels, as well as with many fellow underground ones.

In October 2017 the musically and lyrically hard biting genre-hopefuls from the city of Sofia published their music video for the song "Graveyard":

"Graveyard" is taken out of their third, self-titled album "Eufobia", which has been published in November 2016.

For this successful longplayer, the Bulgarian idealists were able to bring in a lot of sympathetically affirming to fully encouraging and enthusiastic press reviews.
