about

The seriously, seriously intense debut album from Phi Yaan-Zek, with warp-driven guitars, twisted odd meter techno, hyperactive rhythms, alienised soundscapes and a 'Jazz From Hell' attitude. Available for the first time as a digital download exclusively through Bandcamp.

Venturing into the kind of territory associated with the likes of Mr Bungle (Disco Volante period), Frank Zappa, Nine Inch Nails, Buckethead, Univers Zero and King Crimson, this album draws you into a netherworld of groundbreaking instrumental music. Whether it's a mutating spooky atmosphere, a cascade of psychedelic-guitar lines, schizophrenic electronic percussion, or a torrent of high-velocity surreal speed metal, this album is constantly full of surprises. There even seems to be an EVP (recorded ghost voice) that appears at 2:45 on track 4.

Yet again Phi's often noted 'unrepentant sense of adventure' doesn't disappoint. 'Worlds Beyond Cause' is a daring and personal exploration of the bizarre, the dark and the frantic.
