BPHL began its life in late 2019 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.
