” (…) So where does the “astrogrind” thing fit in? Why even bother to coin such a term? There is a space-y, otherworldly, extradimensional feel to the band. Like there’s some sort of space opera being woven within our ears. It’s not psychedelic thing though. After you hear it, it makes sense, but on paper it’s difficult to describe. Dephosphorus weave some intricate and incredible tracks. (…) This is next level grind.”
(…) Maybe I’m just saying this because of the country that they’re from, but on some level I can’t help but think of a slightly crusty, metalcore influenced grind version of Dead Congregation because of their tri-tone heavy riffs. That’s not a very accurate comparison, but in all honesty I’m stumped as to what bands to really compare this to. Perhaps I would describe it as an incredibly evil version of something like Human Remains (though that’s a stretch) mixed with Dead Congregation, Ulcerate and something like His Hero is Gone or From Ashes Rise. All in all, a damned fine album! (…)

“(…) Side A is made up of three rapid-fire tracks from Dephosphorus. Unit is a huge sounding, wrecking ball of a song lasting for a minute and a half, and Dephosphorus even manage to inject some rock n roll influence into their sound. The Final Computronium begins in the same vein, but morphs into a more outright grind blast. The accented vocals of Panos Agoros making it sound even heavier. The Cosmologist starts off with a spoken word passage sitting atop of their instrumentation before one final lurching blast that completes their half of this split. (…) What a record this is. It takes multiple listens to fully appreciate, but both bands reward with skill and a rip-roaring morsel of grind at it’s best. As with other bands that 7 Degrees Records have released material with, both Dephosphorus and Wake make perfect bedfellows on what is an uncomplicated and blasting release.”
