DEPHOSPHORUS – SUBLIMATION ( Review by Varg The Mighty )

Greek Death Metal band Dephosphorus have based their fourth album on Iain M. Banks’ sci-fi novel “The Hydrogen Sonata”, and the music on this album perfectly fits such a story.
With slight touches of Greek Black Metal, their particular music sounds especially spacey and dissonant. These songs remind us from other sci-fi Death Metal bands like Blood Incantation, but also to the original alien masterminds Voivod.
This is definitely not pure Death Metal, but something quite hard to identify with influences that span from Doom to basically any other Extreme Metal subgenre. This mix gives us a very chaotic soundscape that gets help from the unique vocals to give the music singularity.
With interesting songs like the definitive highlight “The Mists Rose Like Departing Dreams, this album is very elaborate and a great opus from the band. I surely recommend it if you like any kind of dissonant sci-fi metal.
