SPLIT BETWEEN GERMAN BLASTBEAT INSTITUTION WOJCZECH AND UK's AVANT-GRIND MATH WHATEVER MADMEN NAMED KRUPSKAYA!
List of products by label 7Degrees Records
19 songs of uncompromising swedish blasting from the same town that brought us Gadget.
The yellow/black splattered LP will be sleeved in a massive Gatefold cover!
Far more than a mere split, this is a trve kvlt collab: each band exchanged singers on each opening song and guitarists – AND the solo by Haapoja’s Pekka Kivela on Dephosphorus' tribute to Slayer "Shades of Reality", after all the release is dedicated to the late Jeff Hanneman.
Dephosphorus hail from Athens, Greece and play a unique musical style known as astrogrind: they endorse a cosmic, mind expanding aesthetic, striving to forge a creative damage path through the underground scene.
On the other side of the wax we have Finland’s Haapoja, who bring a bit more of a blackened approach to their fierce renditions.

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’ 3rdalbum 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.
