APOPHYS
"PRIME INCURSION"
METAL BLADE RECORDS

"PRIME INCURSION" is the debut release from APOPHYS out of the Netherlands.
These guys play some crushing Death Metal music that mostly falls on the technical
side. The band features members of
GOD DETHRONED, TOXOCARA,
PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT, EREBUS, DETONATION
and more, so you
already know this is going to be good. They play a brutal old school smashing full force
into new school Tech Death Metal. Their name comes from the name of an asteroid that
is set to hit Earth in the year 2029 and cause immeasurable damage. This is exactly how
their music is when it hits your ears. The music is so full and dynamic that it plows into
you. The music has that thick and heaviness to it that is found in great Death Metal
bands. The music is much better constructed and thought out than a lot of bands in their
same genre. The guitar work just keeps chugging along and repeatedly pummels you. I
loved it, it was like a fast aggressive Thrash sound amped up a hundred times faster and
more aggressive. The vocals are done in a mid ranged thick Death growl style that just
pierces you. These guys have started out with one hell of an amazing debut release. I
can't wait to hear what they have coming next and they have a lot to live up to!!! For
fans of
HOUR OF PENANCE, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, NILE, SPAWN OF
POSSESSION, ORIGIN
& DEEDS OF FLESH!
