DEPOPULATION DEPARTMENT was formed in the summer of 2018, by Ana (Haemorrage), Jose (ex-Haemorrhage/Ultimo Gobierno) and Luisma (Haemorrhage). The original idea was to play Punk/Crust/D-beat influenced by old bands from the 80s like The Exploited or Discharge. Some months later Lucky (former member of the Death Metal band Avulsed along with Luisma) joined on bass and gave the name to the band.
In February 2019 DxDx entered the studio to record their first ever official release, entitled "Life Kills" set to be released via Spikerot Records in September 2019. Anti-everything attitude with both male and female vocals screaming their heads off from start to finish. 7 songs, 7 deadly bullets.
About ‘Life Kills’ Luisma said: “What we like the most about this EP is that it sounds fresh. We made the songs just to have fun and to unleash all the Punk music we’ve always had in our hearts. We felt no pressure whatsoever and we didn’t even know which direction our music would have taken. Just pure fun. Punk, Crust, Hardcore, call it whatever you prefer but we are proud of what we came up with. Although we weren’t worried about the musical direction we had a clear idea about the lyrics instead. Each one of us were/is involved mostly in Grind and Death Metal bands so we used to sing about Gore, monsters, demons and so on. This time we just wanted to express our feelings towards the sick world we live in, that’s why we entitled it ‘Life Kills’. There are songs dealing with things we see everyday: war, corruption, violence against women, animals, etc…”
