Split Release Sees Wojczech Team Up With Krupskaya

German grind unit Wojczech will release three pulverizing and varied tracks for an ambitious split with U.K. band Krupskaya. The release drops on October 27th via German label 7 Degrees Records.

Wojczech adds more flavor to the proceedings and remains 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, the band covers many sub-styles and it all falls in place beautifully. Here’s grindcore that’s not monotonous, but just as exciting.

Krupskaya from U.K. tear the place down after a pensive build-up, and they’re astonishingly fast. Reminiscent of Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Exit-13 and Yacopsae, the 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.

The track listing for the split LP is:

1. Wojczech – Burning Solids
2. Wojczech – Sickening Discretion
3. Wojczech – Stunde Des Wolfes
4. Krupskaya – Frozen Bodies Against The Wire
5. Krupskaya – A Dawn Of Shattered Silence
6. Krupskaya – Theosophical Separation Of Earth
7. Krupskaya – Skin Of The Cruciform To Ash

Dephosphorus Reveals “Impossible Orbits” Release

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” accurately describes 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. The band simply refers to this style as “astrogrind.”

“Impossible Orbits” is Dephosphorus’ 3rd album and the band’s darkest and more violent effort to date – both musically and lyrically with 9 tracks clocking at under 30 minutes. The album will drop June 15th, 2017 via Selfmadegod Records.

Check out the first excerpt, “Rational Reappraisal,” in the player below. “Impossible Orbits” was recorded and mixed analogically at Unreal Studios while the artwork was hand drawn by Viral Graphics.

1. Above The Threshold

Tanned Christ Streaming New Album “Antipodean Sickness”

This one will mangle your brains: Aussie grindcore band Tanned Christ is streaming all of “Antipodean Sickness,” which will fit right in for fans of Brutal Truth, Pig Destroyer and Discordance Axis. Listen in below. The following press release was also issued about the album:

“Grindhead Records is one of the oldest and most experienced labels in Australia right now. Its latest release is from this bizarre and shocking band called Tanned Christ. ‘Antipodean Sickness’ will hit you like a bottle of tequila and then it’ll start making sense, somehow. I hope. Initially difficult to comprehend, things fall in place once you determine its intent and approach.

“It becomes the music your inner complacent critic secretly yearns for – something challenging, something vile and something that’s demanding enough to get you to sit up and listen intently. It’ll make you scratch your head. While volatile and harsh in its expression, it’s surprisingly intricate and technical.

“Many bands have tried to push the limits but listening to this one, you know Tanned Christ has done something exceptional and truly challenging. In terms of its boldness, this is in the same league of bands like Pig Destroyer, Dephosphorus, Morgue Supplier and Antigama (mid-period).”
