Asphyx debut album title track Incoming Death

Dutch doom death metal band ASPHYX have debuted the first song off of their long awaited new studio album Incoming Death.

The album is set for release on September 30 worldwide via Century Media Records. Check out the title track below:

The clip of the track was edited by Carl Assault and features live-footage of the band’s performance at Brutal Assault Open Air 2015.

ASPHYX vocalist Martin van Drunen commented on the song: “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 metal beasts 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!”


The album’s track listing is as follows:

1. Candiru
2. Division Brandenburg
3. Wardroid
4. The Feeder
5. It Came From The Skies
6. The Grand Denial
7. Incoming Death
8. Forerunners Of The Apocalypse
9. Subterra Incognita
10. Wildland Fire
11. Death: The Only Immortal
