CALVIN: If people sat outside and looked at the stars each night, I’ll bet they’d live a lot differently.
HOBBES: How so?
CALVIN: Well, when you look into infinity, you realize that there are more important things than what people do all day.”
This quote from Bill Watterson’s iconic comic strip “Calvin and Hobbes”, resumes accurately Dephosphorus’ intentions.
With 6 vinyl releases spanning from 2011 to 2015, the Athenians are embarked on a cosmic quest. Their concept and aesthetics draw influences from cosmology, astronomy and science fiction literature, as well as the associated sociopolitical and existential repercussions.
Being impossible to describe their music style by using one or two genre references, they have chosen to call it “astrogrind”.
“Impossible Orbits” is Dephosphorus’ 3rd album and their darker and more violent effort to date – both musically and lyrically. Its 9 tracks clocking at under 30’, see them return to a more condensed form of expression, not unlike their critically acclaimed “Axiom” debut mini-LP.
The similarities with the latter do not stop there, as Panos Alexiadis is again on board handling the live electronics and putting an extra eerie touch to the record’s atmosphere.
“Impossible Orbits” has been recorded and mixed analogically at Unreal Studios. The artwork has been hand drawn by Viral Graphics.
“Transcending Boring, Old-Fashioned, Biological Life”
"The band exists between dimensions; thematically with their sci-fi influences, but also sonically. It is a balancing act between different worlds of extreme metal. From the brutality of death metal and the volatility of grindcore, to the venomous touch of blackened influences and the attitude of hardcore, Dephosphorus mould these diverse worlds into a fiery result." - CVLT Nation
"Impossible Orbits is largely an enjoyable experience, and probably the best grind album so far this year." - Yourlastrites
"So what does this all sound like? Well, if you sent anarchists out into the farthest reaches of the galaxy to form space-squats, they would play some sort of cosmic crust-grind, altered by the journey: the genre’s dystopian anger transmuted into fervent hunger for a real future, and wide-eyed reverence for the approaching stars." - The Quietus

German grind unit Wojczech release three pulverizing and varied tracks for this ambitious split with UK band Krupskaya. They add more flavour to the proceedings and remain unpredictable for the most part without compromising on the sonic impact. Sounding like a contemporary blend of early Brutal Truth, Nasum, Dephosphorus and even Pig Destroyer, they've covering many sub-styles and it all falls in place beautifully. Here's grindcore that's not monotonous but just as exciting.
Krupskaya from UK tear the place down after a pensive build-up, and they're astonishingly fast. Reminiscent of Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Exit-13 and Yacopsae, their music will give you a head rush. Interspersed by atmospheric passages, their wild blasting feels even more intense and is bound to leave you scampering for cover. Crazed-up, hyperspeed grindcore is the order of the day and Krupskaya are one of the finest bands at present at that.
PRE-ORDER OF THE UPCOMING SPLIT BETWEEN GERMAN BLASTBEAT INSTITUTION WOJCZECH AND UK's AVANT-GRIND-MATH MADMEN NAMED KRUPSKAYA!

13/ 15 "WAKE prove in only 19 minutes how pissed off, and even dangerous, modern extreme music in 2016 is still able to sound"
8/ 10 "The multifaceted wealth put in these only 20 minutes inferno is really remarkable. Intense Record!"
"Wake is pissed. Granted, most grindcore bands are angry, but Wake’s music spits, stomps, and bucks with an unbridled, animalistic ferocity."
Heavy Blog Is Heavy: 4.5/ 5
"It’s a shame this band isn’t being talked about in the same breath as modern grind bands such as Torch Runner and Rotten Sound, because with Sowing The Seeds of A Worthless Tomorrow, WAKE have dispelled any notion that they’re unfit to be modern grind royalty."
"Sowing the Seeds of a Worthless Tomorrow is eight tracks of the quintet showing off, well, everything I mentioned up above but with harsher production, tighter execution and somehow a few extra doses of absolute carnage."
"The infamous and terrifying avant-grind horde from Calgary, Alberta has prepared the battlefiled for what is destined to be one the most humiliatingly devastating and bone-shattering extreme metal releases of the year. "
Releasdate: Feb. 26, 2016
A whole new level of violence and aggression from Canada's most infamous grindcore killing machine. WAKE's third full length album is a war zone of ferocious and swarming aggression that elevates the bar of grindcore to an entire new level, opening massive wounds in the listener's perceptions with a vicious and unrelenting onslaught of grindcore, sludge, black metal, crust and crippling post-hardcore.
