Previously, ASPHYX had launched the devastating title track of the upcoming album “Deathhammer” to be checked out online here.
Recorded at The Mörser Studio as well as at Harrow Studio with engineer Harry Wijering, “Deathhammer” was mixed and mastered in Sweden by Dan Swanö, who previously worked with the band on their “Death…The Brutal Way” studio album release from 2009 as well as on the “Live Death Doom” live / DVD release from 2010. Longtime design partner of the band, Axel Hermann (http://www.axel-illustrator.de), has once more provided the powerful artwork.
