Dutch doom/death metal veterans ASPHYX will return to the studio in January to “finish composing and arranging the final pieces” for their follow-up to 2012’s “Deathhammer”. The forthcoming CD will mark the recording debut of the band’s new drummer, Stefan Hüskes, who replaced Bob Bagchus in early 2014.
Says ASPHYX vocalist Martin Van Drunen: “2016 will definitely see another brutal ASPHYX album in our own particular style.”
ASPHYX recently completed a South American tour, the band’s first run of dates on the continent in more than twenty years.
A video recap of the tour can be seen below.
“Deathhammer” entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 67. The CD was released in February 2012 via Century Media Records.
Recorded at The Mörser Studio as well as at Harrow Studio with ASPHYX‘s longtime engineer Harry Wijering, “Deathhammer” was mixed and mastered in Sweden by Dan Swanö, who previously worked with the band on “Death…The Brutal Way” and “Live Death Doom” releases.
