ASPHYX "Deathhammer"

Martin Van Drunen (Ex Pestilence, Hail Of Bullets, Ex Bolt Thrower etc) and crew had a 9 year hiatus, then the praised "Death...Brutal Way" was released and the rollercoaster was about to begin again. This time they give us a album pretty much in the same vein. You got that dirty death metal with heavy doom parts. It´s no frills, no fancy guitar techniques or blastbeats from hell. You´ve heard much of it before from other bands (what the hell it´s 90´s death metal, not progressive new school metal), maybe except the doom parts which isn´t that common in death metal. As always I prefer when things are hittin´hard, the slow passages makes me wanna take a nap. I don´t need blastbeats all night long, but I need some kind of intensity to not press the skip button. As long as they stay to their formula of angry distorted guitars, great riffs and a pretty intense pace I am a big fan. And of course Martin Van Drunen adds an inch of madness with his tormented voice. . Keep the pace up guys and you kill most of the competition in the old school game.
