I had to get a Martin Van Drunen project in here somewhere and this seemed like the most likely group to do it. Asphyx existed before Van Drunen, but it was his manic, death-shrieking vocal style that really set the band's sound in stone. The band plays a slower style of Scandinavian death metal that helped propel the death/doom genre. Asphyx's sound is heavy, dark and powerful. This is truly the sound that made death metal the most extreme music in the early 1990's and it still holds up great today.
