about

"Sometimes the most brilliant gambits are the most obvious. Case in point, the excellent and ascendant 7 Degrees Records grabbed its two foremost bands -- Wake and Dephospohorus -- and told them to each record enough music to fill one side of a 7-inch. The result was an absolutely scintillating pairing that proved to be a pivot from Wake's Leeches (which graced last year's list) to Dephosphorus' dominating Night Sky Transform. Dephosphorus had backed off the artistry of Axiom for something more primal and vicious, which put them firmly in Wake's realm, giving the pairing a wonderful balance from side to side. This is absolutely everything you want in a split experience: two bands at the top of their game that clearly enjoyed the idea of working together."

- Andrew Childers (grindandpunishment.blogspot.ca)


"Two names that should be synonymous with grindcore in 2012 are Dephosphorus and Wake. Unfortunately this is not the case because these names do not reach far enough in today’s press circuit. But, fuck. They deserve it. Both of these bands are fucking phenomenal and they both absolutely crush their respective sides on the new split 7” that they are putting out on 7 Degrees Records. I was so stoked to get this split because I have loved both of these bands for quite some time. I knew that this would be a premiere split to check out this year and boy, was I right.

Dephosphorus pick up side A and pummel your ear drums into the ground right off. Their shocking brand of pummeling psychedelic grind is one that never disappoints and always delivers. Crushing aggression and pinpoint accuracy are a must for Dephosphorus, which means that there are no mistakes or boring parts to their just-over four and a half minutes of pulverizing adrenaline.

Settling the album out on the B-side is Canadian destroyers Wake. I posted about this band a while back and I loved their music so I was extremely stoked to learn that they would be releasing this 7”. This band’s neogrind aspect is spot-on all day, every day. Spot on accuracy and precision with ever passage makes their side just as creative as Dephosphorus’ side.

Throughout this release there no disappointments and no regrets. This split is definitely one of my favorites of the year thus far and there is so much more coming from both of these bands that I cannot wait to see what it is they come up with next. Hoo-rah, Dephosphorus and Wake. You left me wanting more."
