I fell in love with Dephosphorus a while back and have yet to let this band go. I absolutely love all of their music and their drive and integrity make them infinitely interesting. Haapoja are a band that I am not really familiar with, but plan to become that way. Dephosphorus‘s style is a crushing crusty black metal while Haapoja are more straight forward blackened madness. The bands will unleash a split LP and you can hear a track from each below. OH MY GOD. Continue reading
