16) ASPHYX - Incoming Death (Century Media)

Death, doom and destruction are apparent in Ashpyx’s crusher Incoming Death. Crashing in at #16, the Dutch death metal act’s ninth album is a premier slab of death/doom metal with razor sharp headcrushing tracks and spine-tingling riff monsters. Can’t go wrong with this one!

Vocalist Martin van Drunen said about Incoming Death:

“Expect 11 unmerciful battering tracks in the typical Asphyx death/doom style, but also the most varied Asphyx material up to date without losing our rawness, brutality and heaviness. The album will be entitled Incoming Death. And like Deathhammer, it's a phrase that doesn't really exist, but refers to what entrenched soldiers cry out when under severe artillery fire. Thus Incoming Death implies another relentless bombardment of monstrous Asphyx death/doom metal!”
