How would you describe your music to someone who's never heard Protector??
MICHAEL: Bestial invasion!
HANSI: Brutal & aggressive!
MARTIN: Fast, thrashy, murderous & neck-breaking!
- Protector interview, Phoenix Militia #3, 1986
Golem was recorded at Phoenix Studio in Bochum, Germany throughout August, ending on this day in 1988. PROTECTOR's next album Urm the Mad and the 1990 EP Leviathan's Desire were also recorded at Phoenix.
HOLY MOSES released that debut LP on Aaarrg Records and the label continued using Phoenix for several of their bands in the mid-to-late 80s including MEKONG DELTA, RAVENOUS, and TARGET.
