Done To Death


Dutch deathsters stream new video 

Dutch Doom Death Metal pioneers ASPHYX are ready to announce their new studio album release, following up on 2012’s acclaimed ‘Deathhammer’ record, the new album is entitled ‘Incoming Death’ and will be released worldwide on September 30th, 2016 via Century Media Records.

Vocalist Martin van Drunen comments:
“Four and a half years after the release of ‘Deathhammer’ we finally managed to finish its long awaited successor. It will be out on September the 30th,  as always on our beloved label Century Media. Expect 11 unmerciful battering tracks in the typical ASPHYX death/doom style, but also the most varied ASPHYX material up to date without losing our rawness, brutality and heaviness. The album will be entitled “Incoming Death”. And like “Deathhammer”, it’s a phrase that doesn’t really exist, but refers to what entrenched soldiers cry out when under severe artillery fire. Thus “Incoming Death” implies another relentless bombardment of monstrous ASPHYX death/doom metal!”

He continues: “recorded on diffferent locations throughout 2016 and once more mixed and mastered by the mighty Dan “The Man” Swanö. Serious ear bleeding is guaranteed! It’s also our first record also featuring “Husky” on drums, who is now with us for already two and a half years molesting the pig skins with the absolute perfect ASPHYX attitude, passion, pride and mayhem. We are very proud of this best ASPHYX album ever! And knowing our dedicated fans worldwide, they will be proud of us as well! Soon we will hit the stages on every continent to do what we do best; Intense, loud, sweaty, filthy and ruthless live performances!”
