Additional info
Recorded and mixed at Harrow Studios, Holland 1992 - all bass parts played by Ron Van Pol.
Martin Van Drunen recorded the vocals alone in the studio without realizing he was already booted from the band. The vocals were intended to be recorded by Ron Van Pol. However the other members of Asphyx thought the vocal track was fine with Martin singing so it was kept (the lyrics to be sung by Van Pol were yet to be written so Van Drunen's lyrics were kept as well).

Last One on Earth is a "krushing" release, simply put. That meaty Asphyx logo on the cover should be developed into one single iron brand; to be rightfully stamped onto the center of each and every death-doom metal release's jewel case (preferably stamped on by the pupil-less "last one on earth" himself). It would be an appropriate way to remind listeners of the origin of the definitive death-doom metal tone.

At first I thought this was awesome, but now... it's a good album but its greatness wears off quickly...

In that case, man is only air as well.

Last One On Earth...Dear fucking lord, that main riff is heavy is enough to rip apart spacetime.

The only thing that really bothers me here is the production, I think it needs a little more polishing, anyone agree?

Nah, I think the sound of this one is fucking savage as it is. Check out The Rack, now THAT's raw. The debut should have been a bit more polished like this one. Both are great albums though.

I actually like the production in the debut. This one is good too, I just think it could have been even better production-wise.

Remastered sounds better.
