Death By Audio, The Black Angels team up on Phosphene Scream
Death By Audio has teamed up with Austin psych-rock group The Black Angels on Phosphene Scream. This limited-edition delay and reverb pedal, which is sold in a collaboration with Austin’s Levitation festival, commemorates the city’s contributions to psychedelic rock.
Phosphene Scream was borne from a collaboration between two Black Angels members – Alex Maas and Christian Bland – and DBA’s Oliver Ackermann, who’s also the frontman of A Place To Bury Strangers. According to DBA, the pedal is primed for “blasted-out” psychedelic sounds that’ll give you the feeling of journeying through space. It’s touted to provide “every” reverb and delay sound from the 60s psychedelic period as well as futuristic laser-like effects.
On the reverb side, you’ll be able to tap on different room ’verbs, including tight rooms as well as “realistic halls”. Delay can be sculpted by a D-Time knob, which, depending on your settings, can give you filter-flange sounds, 50s-sounding slapback effects or cavernous reflections. Adding to these is a feedback knob that is simultaneously responsible for the delay’s output and feedback level. Maxing out both parameters is said to give you “never-ending screaming repeats”.
Rounding out the control section is a three-way filter toggle switch that lets you change the character of the pedal’s decay. The options include low- and high pass, as well as unfiltered.
The Phosphene Scream is limited to only 420 units worldwide. Each is priced at $200. Pre-orders are now available via Reverb and the Levitation festival’s web store.
