Asphyx - God Cries

Posted on Friday, September 03, 2010

When I played this for my associate Count Bacchus, he mumbled something like, “If there were trees possessed of an evil as ancient as the evil of this band, I’d plant an orchard of them in my back yard.” Well, it’s hard not to agree with that assessment. There’s a raw edge here that might be attributed to the vox not being as low as most Death Metal guys, or maybe a kind of treble boost in the production. Whatever it is, it’s working for them. A reshuffling of the lineup has brought them close to their original form, and they are not fucking around. Some of the drumbeats & guitar parts suggest a (minor) Punk influence, and that’s the only incongruous aspect here, detracting a little from the undead feeling that pervades the rest of the album.
