(1991 – 1999)

Meaning bandname: The name fell out of the sky on one of the first practises, a drunk night full of word-jokes. No-one remembers exactly how and why.

History: Yphobia started in 1991 with Chris, Emil, Bas on guitar, bass and drums and two vocalists Rob and Oene (formerly Chronicore). Quite some gigs were done with this line-up until somewhere in 1996 Emil left because his study and activities as singer for Catweazle. René (ex-Larry Speaks) joined and also a 2nd guitarplayer, Rommert and Rob was replaced by Erik-Jan (ex-Boycot guitarist) for a short while. Because of being too busy with Fleas And Lice and PCP, Oene decided to quit, but helped out until a new singer was found: Jaap who joined in 1998 and in this line-up they did their final concert in Duisburg, Germany on 30.01.1999.

Lyrics: The lyrics were (very) critical towards certain aspects of society like war, religion, meat, abuse; shortly: the decline of human and animal rights on a worsening planet.

Description: Extremely fast and chaotic (death)metal based hardcorepunk, later more and more grind.
