Asphyx, the old-school death metal veterans from Holland, have concluded work on their new album, titled Deathhammer, in mid December 2011.
The new album will be released in February the 27th via Century Media.
There is a new song streaming at the following url:
Song is boring as ferk, funny how they opted to go all "this is true death metal" over such a stale and lifeless backing. What if somebody thinks that this is what death metal is about? Will probably just ignore this release.
Digging: Stereolab - Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements
yeah i already heard the new song, it was overproduced and kinda boring
Digging: Gas (Mat Jarvis) - Gas 0095
The song is cool but not amazing.
i saw at the gates and jizzed.
When i was writing it, I figured that some would react like you did Jim
"at the gates"
Har. Har hardy har har. Ha-r.
Song isn't bad at all. Way better than what some of the "old school" death metal bands are putting out these days.
Digging: Thank You Scientist - Maps of Non-Existent Places
can't listen to the song yet, but I love The Rack and Last One on Earth so I'll probably check it out
Digging: Grave Miasma - Odori Sepulcrorum
The vast majority of retro-death is derivative drivel, yes. I think that literally the only new wave band I'm excitedly following is Krypts.
yeah except this isn't a retro-death band
and there is also a good amount of awesome osdm revival out there
yeah it's better than thrash revival that's for sure
The vast majority of retro-death is derivative drivel, yes. I think that literally the only new wave band I'm excitedly following is Krypts.You realize that Asphyx has been around for two decades and their frontman is the legendary Martin Van Drunen, right?
glad I wasn't the only one who found that comment ridiculous
Meh. Not terrible. Just generic.

Oh, there's an article here too.
"Song isn't bad at all. Way better than what some of the "old school" death metal bands are putting out these days."
My comment was a response to this. If I was noob enough to not know Asphyx from your average revivalist band, would I be into such a global power band as Krypts? Or terribly underrated demo era legends from the times of old like Eternal Darkness (Swe) or Paraxism? :P I'm sorry it sounded downright silly in context.
