Several years ago a few friends associated with Dephosphorus and Blastbeat Mailmurder/Productions started a music/tech blogzine which didn’t work out like we would have hoped to (most of the team faded at some point  into silence and demotivation). As of today, one of the contributors and longtime comrade/friend, Pascal Cretain decided to post again! Read this fest report and share! Gonzo journalism at its finest!


Mega review/interview of the Hell Comes Home vol.1 split-7″ boxset.

Hell-Comes-Home-Vol-1

Mega feature on the Hell Comes Home vol.1 split-7″ boxset that we’ve really been thrilled to be part of, including an interview with the label’s head honcho Joel.

(…) The young Greek band Dephosphorus are trying to see what happens in blending black metal, death metal, post-metal, grind and something else, as one can learn from their own definition of their style, “astrogrind” as well as deduce from their acclaimed production. The amazing track “Stargazing and Violence” starts with a suffocating vortex of unrelenting death metal riffs and strained screams and periodically giving way to “swinging” black metal contaminated by post-metal dissonance and surprising ambience via the insertion of clean vocals.(…)

A brief heads up which has nothing to do directly with Dephosphorus…

Our good friend Andrew Childers, well known to the worldwide grind community for his excellent Grind & Punishment blog, has just published his book Compiling Autumn: The Making Of Discordance Axis “The Inalienable Dreamless”.  Its title is pretty explanatory, so if you’re into Discordance Axis and in modern grind in general, consider checking it out!


“Axiom” ranked #67 for 2011 @ rateyourmusic.com

The fuck is this? Well, it’s creative as hell, is what it is. I’ve rewritten my assessment of its genre three times now, so I’m just going to leave it. Suffice it to say that all the tags for it are correct to varying degrees.

The whole thing basically starts with a sort of semi-melodic sense of black metal and devolves from there, but then you get powerchord/D-beat “breaks” and three-note-bashing phrases that recall early primal BM in Bathory’s style; it’ll roar from something approximating crust into eerie minor chords without so much as a stop-and-start, with transitions so unbelievably fluid you don’t even notice the shift of styles most of the time. Riffs all over the place, big sweeping chords, aggressive breaks, and early-Disfear-esque vocals, and I am extremely fucking impressed.

Where the hell did this even come from? Seriously, with just seven tracks these guys made it into my favourites. Can’t wait for newer releases.

 

 


“Axiom” @ The Living Doorway’s Best of 2011

http://thelivingdoorway.blogspot.com/2011/12/living-doorway-presents-best-of-2011.html

It’s entirely possible that Axiom was the best reader submission TLD received all year, and I believe we might have even been the very first to post it anywhere on the world wide web. An honor for us, of course, especially since just about everyone who came in contact with this blistering clusterfuck of blackened space-grind got burnt to a crisp with utter delight. Seriously. This is the audial equivalent of eating solar flares and shitting space lava.


Update concerning Dephosphorus’ members side-bands

  • INJEKTING KHAOS, featuring Nikos on drums and vocals, are on the lookout for the appropriate label to release their self-titled mini-album. The artwork has been designed once again by Viral Graphics and the music is all about devastating black/death metal…

  • KOMMPOUND, Panos’ field recordings/ambient/drone project, is about to unleash its lengthier release yet, “The Mignola Split”, shared with noise comrade HELLBOY 106. KOMMPOUND contribute with “Northern Sea Ritual”, an epic 40-minute long track.This release will be out as a cassette limited to 50 copies by Blastbeat Mailmurder/Productions in cooperation with Expressionoisesism Prod.  It is a tribute to Mike Mignola’s Hellboy comic series. The cover artwork has been designed by fellow scenester Daniel Goudelis from Superpuma.

“Axiom” review @ Hangar18

http://www.hangar18.com.ar/index.php?topic=27324

Ok, evidentemente éste es el año en que el Metal extremo y los delirios alucinógenos decidieron unir fuerzas definitivamente. No es que antes no hubiera sucedido (nombres como Skeleton Of God, Cephalic Carnage, Agoraphobic Nosebleed o Portal así lo demuestran), pero en la actualidad parece haber una suerte de rebrote de locura generalizada que, en bandas como Mitochondrion, Baring Teeth, Psudoku, Gigan o Flourishing (entre tantas otras), está alcanzando niveles inéditos de creatividad violenta. Dephosphorus es un trío griego nacido en 2008 y, si nos guiamos por lo expuesto en estos siete temas que conforman su debut discográfico, tienen todo lo necesario para sumarse sin problemas a la lista antes mencionada. Se nota una clara fundación Grindcore en su sonido y el hecho de prescindir de bajista los puede asociar directamente con Discordance Axis o Pig Destroyer, con lo cual ya tendríamos un buen punto de referencia para empezar. En efecto, más allá de las voces podridas, los alaridos, los blast-beats y los riffs carnosos, aquí la cosa se pone bien retorcida e impredecible, con múltiples cambios de ritmo operando al filo del caos absoluto, una guitarra que se expande en intrincados y convulsionados paisajes cósmicos, haciendo gala de una vasta gama de recursos e ideas puestas al servicio de trastornar neuronas y quebrar huesos al mismo tiempo. Y es que, aún teniendo en cuenta la demencia surrealista que desprenden estas composiciones, el trío se las arregla para no perder de vista cierta energía visceral que funciona como perfecto balance y le da un sabor particular a su propuesta. Por momentos, suena casi como si en Napalm Death hubieran logrado resucitar e incorporar a sus filas al inmortal Piggy de Voivod, en otros asoma la cabeza cierto espíritu Blackmetalero a la Deathspell Omega pero cubierto de gruesas capas de alquitrán Sludgero y más adelante pueden hacer pensar en unos Neurosis epilépticos y nerviosos. En fin, material con personalidad propia, creatividad desbocada y la rabia suficiente como para atrapar a cualquier amante del extremismo musical que se precie de tal. 


“Axiom” review @ metalitalia.com

http://metalitalia.com/album/dephosphorus-axiom/

I Dephosphorus sono l’ultima frontiera del metallo pesante esportato dalla Grecia. Debuttano con “Axiom”, un interessante lavoro che rischia fortemente di ergere la band a ben più che semplice promessa del grindcore europeo. Loro si definiscono “Astrogrind”, noi preferiamo lasciare i termini ad altri e concentrarci sulla sostanza di questo travolgente full-length, un disco astratto, onesto, senza alcun tipo di compromesso e, soprattutto, brillante per creatività. Il delirio sonico di “Axiom” è ampio, tanto quanto basta per immergere ed intrappolare l’ascoltatore in un’orripilante pozza nera come la pece. Un risultato stupefacente se si pensa che, partendo da una semplice e neppure troppo originale base grindcore, il trio greco ha iniettato nel proprio suono delle massicce dosi di black metal e crust, che esaltano al meglio il lato selvaggio e satanico della proposta. Tuttavia, il background dei Dephosphorus è prettamente punk, influenza più che marcata sui sette brani che compongono la breve tracklist, forti di immediatezza e di un incedere adrenalinico esaltante, dove a prendere il sopravvento sulla blasfemia sonora è la ragionata e organizzata forma canzone. La principale forza dell’album è, dunque, quella di picchiare duro ma con criterio, proponendo riff efficaci e diretti ma al tempo stesso profondi e, volendo, ultraterreni, dalla forza tale da confondere l’ascoltatore e metterlo alla prova nel capire dove inizia e finisce un genere, una capacità da lasciare senza parole. A rafforzare la robusta proposta troviamo, poi, l’adatto innesto delle urla disumane del singer, a tratti molto vicino allo stile vocale di Jeff Walker, un’ulteriore aggiunta ad un lavoro con molti punti a suo favore e reso ancor più efficace grazie ad una profusione caotica ma dannatamente adatta al mood della band. “Axiom” è uno degli esempi più personali nel mischiare le tenebre black metal, la ferocia del grindcore, la rabbia dell’hardcore e l’attitudine stradaiola del punk. Dunque, per gli amanti di questo tipo di sonorità, un lavoro da procurarsi ad occhi chiusi. Un songwriting sopra le righe e un impatto conciso, oscuro e divertente fanno di questo lavoro una delle rivelazioni del 2011. 


“Axiom” review @ Wahrschauer

http://www.wahrschauer.net/component/reviews/?task=view&rid=1413

Das griechische Trio DEPHOSPHORUS benannte sich bei seiner Gründung 2008 eigentümlicherweise nach dem chemischen Prozess des Abspaltens von Phosphor. Inhaltlich befasst sich die Brachial-Kapelle jedoch viel eher mit untergangenen oder auch zukünftig existenten Lebensformen außerhalb des bekannten Planeten Erde. Dementsprechend nennen DEPHOSPHORUS ihren Sound dann auch „Astrogrind“. Der Begriff Grind(core) mag allerdings nicht zu 100% passen, steckt in der Darbietung doch jede Menge schwere, zähe Doom-Lava, die man auch auf den alten BOLT THROWER Meisterwerken antreffen kann. Manche Gitarrenparts erinnern gar an MORBID ANGEL zu ganz ursprünglichen Zeiten und auch inhaltlich haben die drei offenbar ähnlich gelagerte Interessen wie die spacigen Florida-Deather. Wie auch immer, DEPHOSPHORUS erzielen mit Hilfe der Musik und der archaisch-apokalyptisch angehauchten Lyrics, die (womöglich unbewusst?) immer wieder die Nähe zu Lovecrafts Story „The Doom That Came To Sarnath“ ansteuert, eine beklemmende Stimmung, die so lange durch rasende Drum-Parts befeuert wird, bis das Ausmaß der extraterrestrischen Bedrohung klar wird und letztlich das Ende unserer Zivilisation einläutet. Der Sound des nur als Gatefold-Vinyl (!!!) erhältlichen Albums ist überwiegend extrem dem Underground verhaftet, klingt oftmals gefährlich nahe an der Demoproduktion, jedoch tut dies der „positiven“ Wirkung dieser eindringlichen und durchaus auch abwechslungsreichen Musik kaum einen Abbruch. Insgesamt bin ich ein wenig erstaunt, da diese Produktion eher dem Ende der 80er Jahre entstammen könnte als der Feder von jungen Menschen des 21. Jahrhunderts. Da ich jedoch vor 25 Jahren genau diese Band zu meinen absoluten Top-Acts gezählt hätte, muss ich sie auch 2011 allen Old-School-Death-Metallern wärmstens ans Herz legen! 


New reviews for “Axiom”

http://equivoke-mdl.blogspot.com/2011/07/dephosphorus-axiom-2011.html

The guys over at The Living Doorway brought this release to my attention. Dephosphorus are getting glowing reviews all over the place and for good reason. Dubbed “astro grind”, they released this album for free not long ago and promise new stuff very soon as well.

Axiom is an excellent blend of blackened hardcore riffs that melt into death/black metal stylings; like a mash up of Black Arrows of Filth and Impurity with Young and In The Way, but much more than that is to be heard here . It works really well and you can’t really pin them down to one genre for very long. A fantastic album indeed that demands to be listened to on repeat — check them out on bandcamp too.
