Embrace The Death, The Rack, Last One On Earth are some of best death metal albums to ever be made.

Asphyx maniacs speak up!

For some reason never really checked them out/ never was amazed by what I've heard, but that was years ago....where to (re)start?

I would say start with Embrace The Death if you want to hear their most evil, crushing display of death/doom. Vocally it's fucking disgusting and morbid as can be.

Majority of Asphyx fans prefer The Rack or Last One On Earth to be their best material. It all depends on what your ears want to hear. I like the early occult based death/doom they were vomiting forth on Embrace The Death.


Check this out for starters.

I agree completely. Embrace The Death is my favorite as well, doesn't get much more obscure sounding.

I am alone, but I love God Cries.
No deathmetal on this album, only tough guy hardcore.

"The Rack" gets a few spins a year. Just listened to it this past week a couple of times. Even the re-incarnated Asphyx sounds better than most bands of today. Hails Of Bullets also crushes!

One of the absolute greatest Death Metal bands ever! Flawless discography and they have a style that's so distinctly their own—over-the-top guitar tone and sloppy drumming together with those massive riffs...unbeatable. They never even lost it with the past two albums, which are just as good as their earlier works. HOWEVER, now with Bob gone, I really hope the new drumming style won't affect their sound... Confused

Almost twenty years I disliked the band until couple years ago noticed that I might havent heard one single song from them. Dont know why I disliked/skipped them, maybe just mixed with some other band. Or maybe checked one song and noticed that it didnt sound anything like PESTILENCE and let them be.

But still they are just ok. There is nothing wrong in them, its just that riffs & songs arent that good. But those vocals, man, they are so fucking good that who cares what riffs there is playing on background.

Just this week listened The Rack and Last One on Earth, only to hear those vocals. One can only imagine how much blood Drunen coughed in studio.

I know a lot of people will disagree with me on this but Theo>Martin. IMO Martin is great at what he does but Theo just has that truly morbid and disgusted vocal style that really made Embrace the Death stand out the most to me.

Theo is my favorite. Some of the most evil, guttural, hateful growls I have ever heard.

Martin is one of the best death metal vocalist of all time.

Agree with these two posts ....awesome band with strong discography. One of the few reunions that worth to follow with every release.
