Asphyx are another of those "old school" death metal bands that surfaced in the late 80's/early 90's, punched out a handful of albums, then disappeared for years on end, only to return in the latter half of this past decade. Hooray for nostalgia and 20 year trend cycles!

The band has featured about as many line-up changes as Anthrax or Megadeth, and the 2009 resurrection* features Martin van Drunen (also of Pestilence and Hail Of Bullets) on vocals, Wannes Gubbels on bass, Bob Bagchus behind the kit, and the veteran Paul Baayens (also with Hail Of Bullets and Thanatos) playing guitar.

Yes, this album is REALLY that good. If you like death metal with doom vibes, that is. In that case you won't find many albums better than this one.

Rating: 7 The mid-paced portions are solid and catchy as hell, but the doom-like and fast-paced parts aren't as enticing....

Rating: 6 Lacking in textures, a rip-off of Entombed. The slow doom-style tempo is monotonous.

a rip-off of Entombed.

The main difference being that this album (and Deathhammer for that matter) are better than anything Entombed have released in the last decade and a half.
