about

“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.

Notorious grindcore label from Poland, Selfmadegod, will handle the CD and cassette release. Digital copies will be available directly though the band’s Bandcamp page. A vinyl edition will follow later this year.

Track Name: Rational Reappraisal
MILLENIA OF TURMOIL AND PAROXYSM ARE ENDING NOW
AS A LONE FIGURE EMERGES THROUGH THE TOXIC MIST
WHEN THE CORPSES OF FALSE MESSIAHS HAVE BEEN DECOMPOSED
AND THEIR NONSENSE FORGOTTEN

STARTING WITH A CLEAN SLATE
CALM, RATIONAL DESIGN
NO ROOM FOR AMBIVALENT EMOTION,
BIOLOGICAL LIFE AND A.I. HAND IN HAND
RATIONAL REAPPRAISAL

THE OPTIMAL KICK OFF OF COSMIC EXPANSION IS AT STAKE
ENCODED SIGNAL RECEIVED AEONS GO
KEPT OUT OF REACH BY ANTICOSMIC ZEALOTS
CRACKED WIDE OPEN
UNVEILING A CRUCIAL TRANSMISSION
DEPHOSPHORUS!
