ASPHYX: Quality Footage From HEADBANGING ENSCHEDE Festival

Quality fan-filmed video footage of ASPHYX's November 27, 2010 performance at the Headbanging Enschede festival at Atak in Enschede, The Netherlands can be viewed below (courtesy of "letthedeathmetalflow").

ASPHYX recently entered Sonic Assault studio to record two new songs — a cover version of the MAJESTY classic "Bestial Vomit" and the new song "We Doom You To Death". The MAJESTY cover will appear on the upcoming split seven-inch with Dutch death/thrash band THANATOS and will feature lyrics in Dutch dialect while "We Doom You To Death" will be included on a split seven-inch single with Finnish doom/deathsters HOODED MENACE.

ASPHYX's new DVD and double CD, "Live Death Doom", was released in August through Century Media Records. With a total playing time of approximately 225 minutes, "Live Death Doom" contains ASPHYX's two-hour-plus July 4, 2009 performance in Essen, Germany as well as a one-hour-plus documentary about the history of ASPHYX and "tons of krushing additional bonus material." The main live show's audio (which is the same as the CD content) was mixed and mastered by producer Dan Swanö (BLOODBATH, EDGE OF SANITY), who had previously worked with ASPHYX on the band's 2009 comeback album, "Death...The Brutal Way". The glorious "Live Death Doom" old-school artwork was created by Axel Hermann, who was also responsible for the artwork on the group's classic 1990s releases. The DVD was coordinated and edited by Oliver "Bomber" Barth.

ASPHYX parted ways with bassist Wannes Gubbels earlier in the year and replaced him with Alwin Zuur (PULVERIZER, ESCUTCHEON).

ASPHYX's new lineup made its live debut at this year's edition of the Hammer Of Doom festival on February 6, 2010 at Posthalle in Würzburg, Germany.

ASPHYX 2010 is:

Martin van Drunen (vocals)
Alwin Zuur (bass)
Paul Baayens (guitar)
Bob Bagchus (drums)
