The legendary Dutch death doom elite band Asphyx recently announced their tenth full-length studio album Necroceros, which arrives January 22, 2021 via Century Media Records. Pre-order the record, which comes in various configurations, HERE.
The band has just shared the video for the single “Botox Implosion,” filmed by Maurice Swinkels/Younique Film (Legion of the Damned, Exodus, Kataklysm).
Watch it HERE:
“We actually wanted to film this on Sunset Boulevard in L.A., where most of the pathetic subjects of this song have their residence,” says frontman Martin van Drunen. “But due to the pandemic, it was best not to fly over to the USA. Since it’s a fast-shredding song and written in the typical humorous death metal gore tradition, we put a few laughable elements in it. Fortunately, good old Turock in Essen was so friendly to let us film there and while we’re usually not that keen on shooting videos, with this one, we had quite some fun. Still, it is a helluva brutal tune!”
Necroceros was recorded at Tom Meier Studio as well as at Paul Baayens’ The Mörserstudio, and then finally mixed/mastered by Sebastian “Seeb” Levermann at Greenman Studios. The album features cover art by Axel Hermann.
Necroceros track listing:
“The Sole Cure is Death”
“Molten Black Earth”
