(4 out of 5 stars)
"Asphyx should have godfather status right up there with the Florida greats like Death, Morbids and Obitiuary and the Scandanavian greats like Entombed and Dismember. Formed by Martin Van Drunen when he left Pestilence this band is pedigree stock.This is the last one with Van Drunen but the band continued without him after this. This is old school quality sound remeniscent of Obituary style.Sludgey and distorted but very powerful.On the musician scale again very much like Obitiuary or Entombed.Far from tech-metal This is very raw and basic, mostly mid pace tempos.And if your familiar with Van Drunen's demonized throat screams he has never sounded so forceful and scary.I gave only 4 stars instead of 5 just because it does get repetetive with the same brutal attack on every cut. Not much variety but the onslaught is welcomed. If you think you are a death metal specialist and you dont have any Asphyx you better get crackin' and get them all.Essential part of Death Metal history."
