<<<Apparently Dephosphorus are gonna keep dribbling out new music in spurts until your balls are swollen and cerulean in anticipation for Night Sky Transform. Here’s one more astrogrind tune to keep you primed.
Unlike the comparatively pithy pack of songs they gave us on the Wake split, Dephosphorus go long with “Stargazing and Violence.” The lengthiest song in their repertoire to date, Dephosphorus had me worried at first because the first 30 seconds of the nearly four minute tune is spent beating to death one stomping riff. I’d feared the Greeks may have lost their touch, but then “Stargazing and Violence” supernovas into crystalline black metal spidering. That gets blended with blastbeat urgency and guitarist Thanos Mantas’ constantly shifting musical architecture that manages to bleed psychedlic swirls, shrill thrashings and downtempo introspection into a single protean tune. The one real misstep to the song are some really sour clean vocals at the midpoint, but they’re mercifully short and then erupt to one of drummer Nikos Megariotis’ finest blastbeat moments, a snare rolling snap that reminds of me of Kataklysm’s Max Duhamel at his best. “Stargazing and Violence” is only one song and one with some admittedly awkward components, but it shows once again how fearless Dephosphorus can be. They take a lot of chances here and most of them pay off. I’ve heard the ambitious Night Sky Transform and this actually serves as a nice Rosetta stone to decrypt Dephosphorus’ evolution since Axiom.

Track Name: Stargazing & Violence
PROOF FROM ABOVE
ONE THAT HAS TRAVELED FOR BILLIONS OF YEARS
TRANSMITTED AT THE EPOCH WHEN
THE UNIVERSE WAS STILL YOUNG
AND THE GALAXIES FEWER
THAN WHAT THEY ARE TODAY

DECIPHERED
UNIVERSAL NUMERICAL CODE
INTERPRETED
UNCERTAIN WHAT THE MEANING WAS FROM THE START
CHAOS & TURMOIL
THE INSTANT REVELATION OF A SINGLE FACT

DETHRONEMENT OF MUNDANE RULERS
COLLAPSE OF THE WAY
THAT LOCAL INTELLIGENCE ORGANIZED

SMASH WITH A STONE
THE SKULL OF THE MAN
WHO STANDS IN THE PATH
BETWEEN YOU AND THE STARS

SMASH WITH A STONE
THE SKULL OF THE MAN
WHO STANDS IN THE PATH
BETWEEN YOU AND THE STARS

STARGAZING & VIOLENCE
STARGAZING & VIOLENCE

EVOLVED LIFEFORM
OF CAPABLE INTELLIGENCE
IS CHAINED, FORCED TO SLAVE LABOR
BY ITS NATAL PLANETS TYRANTS

EACH TIME IT STOOD ON ITS FEETS
RAISING HIS HEAD
TO LOOK AT THE NIGHT SKY
THE COLLAR NAILS SINKED DEEP

PUNISH THEM FOR THEIR IMPERTINENCE
REPLACING SCIENCE WITH MYTHOLOGY
WHIP THEM IN PUBLIC
THEN HANG THEM AND LET THEM ROT

STARGAZING & VIOLENCE
WE HAVE TO BEND THE FABRIC
AND OPEN THE GATES

BEND THE FABRIC
