Asphyx launch new music for video “Candiru” and announce tour dates!

Dutch Doom Death Metal division Asphyx continue to promote their much acclaimed latest album, Incoming Death, which was released at the end of September via the band’s longtime label partner Century Media Records.

Therefore, Asphyx are now launching a a new music video for the album’s merciless opening track “Candiru”. The clip was shot during the band’s recent appearance at Turock Open Air festival in Essen, Germany and was edited by Maurice Swinkels / Younique Film (Exodus, Kataklysm, etc.), who most recently worked with ASPHYX on the “Forerunners Of The Apocalypse” clip.

Asphyx vocalist Martin van Drunen checked in with the following comment about “Candiru”: “Candiru is a no-nonsense, non-compromising 3 riff containing fast Asphyx Death Metal track. A gory story about a revolting little fish from the Amazon that can nest itself in human genitals to suck blood after it got there via the urine stream. Only removable through amputation, so be careful there were you relieve yourselves folks! The video was recorded at this year’s Turock Open Air in Essen Germany, which we can almost call our second home. The very first time we ever rammed that tune on stage. We had a ball, as always, so hope you do too while watching this“.

Asphyx debut “Forerunners Of The Apocalypse” video clip

Only about a week left to go until the long awaited new studio album Incoming Deathby Dutch Doom Death Metal division ASPHYX is released worldwide on September 30th, 2016 via Century Media Records. Therefore, ASPHYX are pleased to debut a promotional video clip for the new album’s track “Forerunners Of The Apocalypse” today!


Directed by Maurice Swinkels / Younique Film (Exodus, Kataklysm, etc.), who already worked on the “Deathhammer” clip by ASPHYX, and featuring conceptual illustrations by Roberto Toderico.

ASPHYX vocalist Martin van Drunen checked in with the following comment about the video: “Forerunners Of The Apocalypse” is the first official video from the “Incoming Death” album. Done on a hot Thursday night at the Turbinenhalle in Oberhausen, Germany, where massive credits go out to the crew there. Lots of sweat, beers, laughter and probably the loudest playback session ever in metal! Filmed and edited by the one and only Maurice Swinkels, who probably went deaf after this. A grand cheerz also goes out to Roberto Toderico for the great Mongol warrior drawings! It was the last track written for the album, about genocidal ruler Genghis Khan. Especially about the sacking of Urgench, where 1.2 million were decapitated without mercy. A fucken stampede of a headbanger, so break your necks on this one!”
