Asphyx will drop their tenth full-length studio album Necroceros, on January 22 via Century Media. The album was recorded at Tom Meier Studio as well as at Paul Baayens’ The Mörserstudio while it was mixed/mastered by Sebastian “Seeb” Levermann at Greenman Studios featuring cover art by longtime Asphyx artwork designer Axel Hermann. Check out the video for “Botox Implosion” from Necroceros below:
Frontman Martin van Drunen states: “It came out spontaneously, sounded powerful and since we used the word ‘Death’ in every release-title, so did ‘Necro.’ The idea was a sci-fi fantasy entity on an eternal course, existing only to devour planets, turning universes into meaningless voids.”
Asphyx formed in Overijssel, Netherlands in 1987 and currently features Stefan “Husky” Hüskens [Drums], Paul Baayens [Guitars], Alwin Zuur [Bass] & Martin van Drunen [Vocals]. Earlier this year Asphyx was named “One of the Greatest Rock Bands From Europe” by Kerrang! Necroceros is the long-awaited follow-up album to 2016’s Incoming Death.
