BPHL began its life in late 202019 as a means to make music in the restrictive environment of a global pandemic. With both members having a history of playing in various hardcore and metal bands, as well as having a shared interest in dark electronic music, the idea of forming a new project was born.
With influences ranging from DAF to Swans, and the name BHPL referring to a tragic gas leak disaster in India, the duo locked itself into a room full of synthesizers to create a new soundtrack to listen to while watching the world slowly turn into a cesspool of depravity.
Being fascinated by the gas leak disaster in Bhopal, a tragic and unknown episode in human history, M started writing lyrics on this dazzling display of human failure and its appalling aftermath.
BJ made the soundtrack for the first EP, providing 5 gritty, synth-driven tracks somewhere in between acid, techno and EBM. M's rough and screaming vocals add an extra layer of energy, adding depth to BHPL's debut EP.
