As most (all?) of you, we are heartbroken by the tragic death of L.G. Petrov, taken away too early from this cruel world at the age of 49 after a fierce fight with bile duct cancer.
He was the emblematic frontman of one of Dephosphorus’ favorite bands and influences (the live cover of Say It In Slugs back when myself and Thanos played with Straighthate, was the high point of our opening set for Cursed (CA) -heavily influenced by Entombed themselves- in Athens circa 2005).
I still remember the excitement of seeing them live with him back in 1994 supporting Wolverine Blues by opening for Napalm Death in Paris. Even though they were technically the support act, a big part of the audience came just to see them – leaving just before ND!
LG had an inimitable voice, sounding at the same time deep, expressive and super angry.
Most importantly though, everybody knew him as an all around great guy. He was the archetype of the cool metalhead/musician/music lover: passionate, talented but never taking himself too seriously.
Our hearts go to this family, band mates and loved ones.
Gone but not forgotten – REST IN POWER!

- “Impossible Orbits” release gig
As you probably have noticed by now, we rarely play live due to the geographical distance that separates our guitarist/songwriter Thanos who lives in Sweden, and the rest of the band. That’s why we are so excited to announce our second gig ever, which will also be the “Impossible Orbits” album release party! Please find the details below.
<<< It is impossible not to be impressed by this third demonstration of strength of the Greeks, which indeed seems to be the most intense and convincing of their career. >>>
<<<Avant Impossible Orbits, Dephosphorus était surtout pour moi le groupe principal d’un membre d’une formation injustement boudée à l’époque de la seule sortie à son actif : Amnis Nihili, créatrice de l’excellent EP Christological Escalation réconciliant black metal orthodoxe et punk. Certainement, le projet-maître avait déjà eu un petit succès avec ses deux précédents albums – Night Sky Transform et Ravenous Solemnity (apprécié à l’époque par FleshOvSatan) – ainsi que ses splits avec Wake ou encore Great Falls, mais son « Astrogrind » (comme il l’appelle) me passait à chaque fois au-dessus, ne trouvant pas les autres instruments à la hauteur de la voix de Panos Agoros. Mais ça, c’était avant.
