DjNawo Youdash has crafted a beautiful piece of art. The schizoid tempos, the fun riffage, the heavy metallic drums and blast beats (That RIDE), Bungle-esque composition and brutal growls, and on top of all that insane amounts of MELODY, I can't get enough of Astrophobia. Favorite track: Force Guide.

about

End of the 2016 brings YOUDASH’S debut album „Astrophobia” under Deformeathing Production flag.

After many years of activity, two EPs and a number of concerts the band has mastered breaking down the barriers during the creative process. The terms like „convention”, „frames”, „styles”, „limitations”, „calculation” are not the point. There is only an absolute freedom of creating the sound.
„Astrophobia” includes eight compositions (7 original tracks + a surprising cover version of a piece by Acid Drinkers, featuring Uappa Terror from Terrordome) lasting 38 minutes as a whole.

The author of the album cover is Rafał Wechterowicz (collaborated with Machine Head, Slayer, Metallica, Slash).
Piotr Szafraniec/Archart Studio is responsible for the graphic design (collaborated with Trauma, Decapitated, Lost Soul).

Additional keyboards and samples were recorded by VX the Mind Ripper who also collaborated with Atrophia Red Sun, Naumachia and Thy Disease.

The album was recorded in Studio 67 under the watchful eye of Dominik Burzym (responsible for the sound of the albums by Mord’A’Stigmata or Atrophia Red Sun).

For fans of: Gorguts, Car Bomb, Gojira, Meshuggah, Dillinger Escape Plan, Naked City, Mr. Bungle.

"Remember the exact moment of awe and jubilation when you heard Dillinger Escape Plan, Meshuggah or Mr. Bungle for the first time? By listening to Astrophobia, you will experience the sum total of those respective moments and witness the birth of something transcending and overtaking its sonic relatives". Anton/Nine Circles

"These compositionsare biz-onkers. Not only do the tech death portions rip through some truly righteous riffs and drumming, they also purposefully derail into some strange and uncharted territories that rarely detract from my enjoyment. Variety is the spice of life, and with Youdash the spice flows freely." MetalTrenches.com

Track Name: Celestial Phenomena
I stare blindly up
Watching the surrounding-me sky
Through this lunatic black

I feel vastness, it’s upon me
Open!, reveal yourself to me!
Display what is in the centre

How to see the unnoticeable?
Enlighten me! Impenetrable
Show guidance, the lights
Endless lines through pitch black

Quiet request won’t help
Shouted threat won’t change a thing
Signs that I need to keep with, I didn’t know that cognizance is so hard
Travel now! Vide now!
But again, will you reveal for me,
Oh, the infinite darkness?

Maybe I should open my eyes?
Then I will see what’s in front
A single man quest!
Slightly different, not methodical, eyes widely open to seek the path

Maybe I should open my eyes?
Then I will see what’s in front
A single man quest!
I see it now, I can see myself now! I’m gleaming with light

Gleaming speechless among the stars
I, the light! Me, the point!
Ember burns my veins. I, the light!
Even gloomy chill can’t help Me, I the point!

I don’t need any guidance
Gently carried by the rays of light
Phenomena

Asking a question without the will to know the answer
An astral entity, a dark being
Fulfillment of dead existence

I look at myself – an individual
A single ray, an avidity to know more
To know myself better, me!

It will be a journey through the darkest corners of my spheres
Will I make it till the end?

Flame will last till the end
To reveal the further path
I will reach the verge of awareness!

Flame will last till the end
To reveal the further path
Wholeness is open for me

Or maybe…?
Track Name: Hunting Among The Stars
Gathering forces on the frozen land, underneath the ice and cold steel
Living in a dream of freedom, hidden in this rock
Unawarely founded, trying to run before the dark fire melts the ice

Flying in icy corridors
Dark lord lies down his hands, devastates last stand, slowly approaching to victory
I will hunt you down

No one will run away, I will take you down
Even if you hide at the end of the universe

Slowly retrieving through battleground, entering the ships, preparing to starride

To battleship, go after them!
The hunt won’t finish until last of them
Will beg for his life

Last months of our life buried under the ice
The dark fire ended that episode

My hand will lay on your throat!

Now, I will discover a new part of the sky
I will travel, following the opportunity to be more powerful
A green globe on black sky, glowing with force that guided me
Forest planet, I feel surrounded by the dark force, but I feel safe here
My master, teach me how to fight my fears

Another stars, another planet now the toxic waste
Atmosphere can’t support life but technology can
(Hunting among the stars!)
Steel city beyond the red sky, beyond the dead land
Beneath greed for authority and power
Lost all the values

At the end on the outer rims
Where light collapses
Steel city high in the sky
You fall, but it’s not your death
It’s beginning of my end
It’s beginning of your revenge
It’s beginning of retaliation
Track Name: Deathstar
I am forced to be a part of illness
I am forced to be a part of slain

I’ve made it, deathstar!
I will try to resist it, even if I am too scared

As we will unite, we can become a new life
Closed inside, between the walls of steel

In the beginning – gathered as a mindless mass
Clothed in white with fearless eyes
We stand face to face with greater evil
We stand against a man of closed mind
Now we’re marked by a gallant sign

We are the rebellion, a paradox inside deathstar
We are rebellion, silence surrounds us
In the name of those with hands cuffed
Let us be an example of how to fight

The rebellion has started
Battle against the man in a dark mask
The Dark Lord breathes deeply in his chamber
Fueled with greed

You’re not the first that stands against me
Not the last that I will defeat

We spread through the veins of star
At last! Days of slavery will end
Then I saw a beam of light which ends everything
Track Name: Devouring Cell
It came out of nowhere
It came after shadow, braid with dust
With one desire – to change and rule the world
Nothing can stop it
The undead creature, the one thing army
Slipped out of control
Flesh and hope eater, spits with fear and death
Created by a crooked mind, bigger than the awareness
I was raised in a crystal womb, I am a god among the others
I spread my seed through the whole galaxy
Horns made of flesh, face of nightmare
Eyes which can see through
Digestion roar shrouds our existence
Dust fills the eternal life
Hunger for flesh in dying world
A desire for an absorption of masses
To become the most splendid
The flesh and hope eater, spits with fear and death
Created by a crooked mind, bigger than the awareness
I was raised in a crystal womb, I am god among the others
I spread my seed through the whole galaxy
To be the greatest, absorbs siblings
Oppose to rest of species, strive to lead
One after another sucked into stomach

Nothing remains this slaughter...

When time will come that hunger will be appeased?
Immensity of victims still doesn’t satisfy
Lust to absorb more and more
Nothing remains after the slaughter

Whole lands are deserted, only death
Eternal silence above once full of life planet
When time will come that hunger will be appeased
It came out of nowhere
It came after shadow, braid with dust
With one desire – to change and rule the world
Here comes Devouring Cell!
It will crush their bones and gobble their flesh
Here comes Devouring Cell!
The artificial maggot is born
Track Name: Astral Anxiety
My wings are burning
Every single feather falls down
I am falling right behind
Why I can’t stop myself from collapsing?
Why are we afraid to fly higher?
I should be a god now! A leader of my own life!
I won’t quit! Push, strive and destroy to reach limits.
I should be a god now! A creator of my own life!
Don’t quit, spread the flame to reach the limits.

Too quick.
Too soon,
After such a long time, fate again turned back on me.

My body becomes heavier and heavier
The struggle, awareness of your own fear
I should be a god now! Creator of my own life!
Don’t quit, spread the flame to reach the limits.
Too quick.
Too soon,
After such a long time, fate again turned back on me.

Fate
Be a god for yourself.

Hesitation by lack of knowledge, cracked mind
A third person breakdown
Be a man, not a boy!
Be something more than a piece of meat!

Should I leave my body to become emotionless entity?
To live without fear, without greed
Or still in numb fury push ahead to wreck everything
Framework which contains human emotions
Leave it and choose a different way to become…
I look at my life through fear prism
Through luminosity of my burning wings
Burned up by a lack of confidence
Dread of falling…
I’ll take off these lenses, I’ll cut off and fly
Track Name: Force Guide
When I’ve walked through this doors, my knowledge was poor
But now I am rising above with mindforce that Darklord has shown
I wanted to change after I saw a filth of light, I’ve changed into…

I’m the master, I’m the guide
I walk between shadows of force trying to keep my soul pure
I’m the guide now
I will teach you, my young lad, everything I know
In equality I’m not those who bow down

In Searching for knowledge you need to enter the shadow
But now bow on your knees in front of me, you can’t stand against me

Standing between the shadows, going further into it
Darkness surrounds me but I can see more than before

I’m your master so bow on your knees
I’m your master, open your eyes to see

Standing between the shadows, going further into it
Darkness surrounds me, but I can see more than before
Crawl on your knees, move closer to the edge
One more step to be redeemed

Feel the free fall, dip your body into the shadow’s world


Now, don’t be surprised when you will see world differently
I show you new horizons of today’s world
It’s darker than before

When I’ve walked through this doors, my knowledge was poor
But now I am rising above with mindforce that Darklord has shown
Track Name: Strip Tease (Acid Drinkers cover feat. Uappa Terror)
Money is a nerve of war, love and theatre
and I'm convinced, fuck, it isn't funny
and you're ashamed, when you talk about money
but it's your mask, I will pull out the true
I'm gonna humble you, I wanna strip you,
I wanna force you to...
Psychical strip-tease
You sau to me tolerance, it smells of falsehood
you drive a knife in my back, takin' bout botherhood
now you're telling 'bout friendship, it is nasty and it's cheap
it is your mask, I will pull out the true
I'm gonna humble you, I wanna strip you
I wanna force you to...
Psychical strip-tease
Running with the devil
Dear blockhead, dear lovely muthafucker, I present you
panorama of mu crotch, Are you indignant?
Don't be indignant, boy, my little sweet sucker
it is your mask, I will pull out the true
I'm gonna humble you, I wanna strip you
I wanna force you to...!
Psychical strip-tease (x8)
Are you a rebel?!
