Pain, power and pounding. Stinging riffs. Crushing rhythms. Howling vocals that could rip flesh from bone. Asphyx bring death metal to a whole new level. So heavy it sends shockwaves into Hell. So loud it can be heard long into the afterlife. ‘Necroceros’ is harsh. It hollows out your soul and in return fills it with songs like ‘The Sole Cure Is Death’, ‘Three Years Of Famine’ and ‘Botox Implosion’ with expert precision that only a band on their tenth studio album can demonstrate. Recorded during Lockdown and partly inspired by what they describe as the horrors and frustrations of the global pandemic, ‘Necroceros’ is also an outstanding example of Asphyx’s phenomenal, forceful sound. It’s a record that will forsake all others and slay its way to the top. And hopefully take out this virus while it’s at it.
