Official press release: Legendary Dutch Doom-Death Metal masters Asphyx are fiendishly pleased to reveal the cover art and tracklisting for their upcoming full length offering, Incoming Death, which has been slated for a September 30th, 2016 release date through Century Media Records. Asphyx - Incoming Death: 01. Candiru 02. Division Brandenburg 03. Wardroid 04. The Feeder 05. It Came From The Skies 06. The Grand Denial 07. Incoming Death 08. Forerunners Of The Apocalypse 09. Subterra Incognita 10. Wildland Fire 11. Death: The Only Immortal Asphyx vocalist Martin van Drunen checked in with the following comment about the album: "Incoming Death, the third Asphyx album after our resurrection in 2007, contains 11 furious songs in the traditional death/doom style which we are known for so well. Only more unmerciful than ever! Lyrical themes include gore humor, death, doom, war, sci-fi, the varying trustworthy Asphyx subjects, each fusing perfectly with the metal of the tracks. The album title already existed two or three years ago, being 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!" Once again, the album's artwork was imagined by the always prolific Axel Hermann (Sodom, Grave, Morgoth, etc.), who commented on the artwork approach as follows: "Incoming Death is my tenth collaboration with Asphyx. Instead of visualizing the obvious, which would have been a reaper just collecting the soul of a dying man on his deathbed, I tried a maybe more sinister approach, simply by giving the concept a slightly different twist. A demon-infested living cemetery filled with decaying souls, forever being tortured with their own consciousness...or worse!" Martin van Drunen added the following: "Of course no Asphyx release without the magnificent cover art of Axel Hermann, whose interpretation of the title fits superb with the atmosphere of the recordings. His demons are ours and soon they will be yours too!"
