Finally, I found some time to sit down and write about the last album from Greek grinders Dephosphorus. First of all, I want to highlight that this work is very dark. This darkness starts right from the front cover and ends only with the last riff in Blessed In A Hail song. We all know how people of Greece love black metal and dark things. These sub-genres have a influences in, almost, all music in that country. I can name ton names of crust, metal, grind bands that are using a lot of black and dark metal. And I really don’t know why, this is some kind of phenomenon for that country. But let’s go back to “Impossible Orbits” album…
This album has strong heavy metal sound. And yes the whole album is well produced. Dephosphorus is playing their own music. All songs contain something from death metal, grindcore, crust, black metal and so on. So I can’t name this music a poor grindcore. The black metal elements on this album stand out a lot. The vocalist uses high screams that you would find in crust/stenchcore genres. The album also slows down a bit in crust parts with nice d-beats and a heavier atmosphere. When bands raise the tempo up in grindcore and blackened parts, it usually sounds messy and aggressive.
I can name lots of band names here, which influenced their music, but let’s say it is a kind of extremely heavy and speed version of Mayhem, Nasum, and Extinction Of Mankind.
So this album definitely is not for fans of old school noise. This is more modern tunes, Dephosphorus is a part of the new wave of grindcore bands. So if you love bands like Wake, Iskra make sure to check this CD!
