Asphyx – Embrace The Death (1996)

Not the first album that I have heard by this legendary Dutch band, but when listening to it, and doing my research, I realised how confused and in the dark I was about the band’s complicated discography. Embrace The Death sits a few albums in, but was recorded towards the start? Or something like that?

Despite all of this, Asphyx has this unmistakable mournful approach to the slower side of death metal; a melodic depth without being a melodeath band or anything silly like that. If like your death slow (lol) then come one and come all.
