West Coast Heavy Metal!
We're proud to announce the we've finally found on witch shelf our music belongs. In a recent interview with musiq.no Ulve were asked what kind of metal we played. His response were instantly: "...We define our music as West Coast Heavy Metal, a mix between old school, trash and modern metal. I don't think anyone else is doing what we are doing in the same way we're doing it, but in future I hope WCHM are going to be a new sort of metal that we created and that other band will pick up and continue the legacy..." Sounds a bit( allot actually...) more arrogant then its meant to be, but we are sick and tired of all the different opinions about our music. This is the metal we play: WCHM, period.

Some new reviews of "NEON" and the interview we did with Musiq.no can be read right here !

New gigs confirmed! Were when & what right here!

Jingle (hells) bells!
The record are in the press now, and it will be available only in Desspo's online merch. shop.
It will be available on the first 4-5 live shows after release, but that’s it. What we will do however, is to give a 2nd

Review of the Metropolis gig out here! (Norwegian)

The movietakes are finished and the Zoom gig done. It was one of the most hectical days ever but fun as hell!! Images from both events will be out soon!

Desspo will start making a video to the track "Overkill" today. The guys at Tryllefilm will help us out with animation and special effects. Stay tuned for info and clips......

Thank you everyone who showed up at Tribute last friday and made the gig real fun to play. It was great to see Thunderbolt do their classic metal so fucking good and that they could party as good as well...flash flash guys!!

The gig at Metropolis went in ordinary Desspo style even thou a bit to few of the local
metalkids showed up. What is more important is the fact that we filmed and
taped it all, and that will be done at Tribute Friday 7th of October as well.
Just show up to participate in our video with maniac slamming and headbanging...

If you want to help Desspo kicking ass outside Norway you can write some nice words about us here and maybe get us to Sweden rock festival. Thanx!!!

Hi there MoFos!
Summer holiday is over and Desspo is back in business.

be quick. Be cool..!!!

"Obscured" review from Vampster.com out here!

"Obscured" review from Metalfan.nl (Netherland) out here! Images from the "Rockin" gig out soon.

Here we are again mo fos, Desspo did a good show in Oslo at Rock In, but I'm sorry to say that to few came to check us out. PR has to be blamed for that, but then again we played 2 weeks after Inferno so its possible that people were a bit sick of metal and live shows at the moment. We will be back, we will return, we will roll all over you again this fall, so watch out for us in a club near you. Metals up...

Greetings mo fos!
Our release concert for "Obscured.." is one of the best we ever done.
Everything seemed to fit, and the cover tune we presented really thru
people as we thought it would. Altho we had some technical problems in
the beginning and the pyro started a small fire and made the light
engineer go apeshit , everything went just fine. Desspo would also like
thank our good friends of Deathfare and K(nine) for making the event
memorable with their support and music performance. Special thanks to
Arvid of K(nine) for stepping in as a sound engineer and saving the
night audiowise. And to you trusted fans who showed up; thanks for
making the gig as good as it got. We hope we gave you what you wanted;
namely Pure Fucking Metal...!!!

Desspo will play "Obscured" release gig in Stavanger 28.01 Watch out for ditails.

Interview out here and new session images from Ulves celler out here...!!!

New interviews will soon be added..:)

Some new session images will be out soon.

Desspo would like to thank all of you mo fos out there for voting for us at Bylarm. Thank you for the effort...!!!

Images from Desspo`s support gig for Deicide and some reviews of "Obscured" out soon..!!

We had one hell of a night last night with Deicide as we
did the support act. We played very hard and good as well as Deicide doing their job seriously. The audience were very happy with the
triple bill that suprisenly came up as the european support act were
coming to scandinavia without any notice. More fun for the money put in
for tickets. Till next time; see you crazy m****r f*****s out there soon on a gig near you...!!!

Desspo will play support for Deicide at Folken 24.11. 04. All we can say is Fuck in'A'.....
