ASPHYX – debut title track of “Incoming Death” album; Album formats and release shows announced! Death is coming nearer with the release of the long awaited new studio album by Dutch Doom Death Metal division ASPHYX on September 30th, 2016 worldwide via Century Media Records.
Consequently, it’s about time to launch a first song off “Incoming Death”, so check out the relentless title track here now: https://youtu.be/AYNkQh6VDNk
The clip enhancing the song was edited by Carl Assault and features live-footage from the band’s performance at Brutal Assault Open Air 2015.
ASPHYX vocalist Martin van Drunen checked in to comment on the song as follows: “’Incoming Death’ was musicwise composed in perhaps 10 minutes when Husky and Paul were checking the sound in the Perle am Rhein studio for the flexi recordings. When we all freaked out on it, we knew we had the title track for the album. It’s so typical our ASPHYX death metal style. Straight forward, no nonsense, three riff, in-your-face death metal. Not that we were looking for a title track that would be in the tradition of ‘Death The Brutal Way’ or ‘Deathhammer’. It just came out like this. It’s a damn neckbreaker to raise hell to when playing live and that’s why the choice for the track was only natural. Stanza, chorus, repeat, bridge, stanza, chorus, end. That’s how it’s done. On Instinct. Lyricwise three times death and gore by plague, aliens and zombies. And some metalbeasts are even shorter than two minutes! So grab a beer, bang that head and scream along. This is fucken ASPHYX and we always deliver the goods! “
