Asphyx: To perform special set at Roadburn festival 2013! Playing Turock Open Air this weekend!
Dutch Doom Death Metal pioneers ASPHYX continue to promote their newest and possibly most acclaimed album release ever, "Deathhammer". Released worldwide at the end of February via their longtime partners Century Media Records, "Deathhammer" entered the official sales charts in Germany on position # 67 and amazingly ranked as "Album Of The Month" in the German publications Rock Hard Magazine, Heavy Magazine and also Legacy Magazine. ASPHYX have consequently appeared at festival events like SWR Barroselas Metalfest (PT), Extreme Fest 2012 (G/S/A), Obscene Extreme (CZ) or most recently Germany's Summer Breeze in order to showcase the album.
It is with great pride that ASPHYX can now announce to have been invited to appear at 2013's edition of the prestigious Roadburn Festival, as announced by the event's promoters:
Asphyx To Play Their Slowest Death Doom at Roadburn Festival 2013
"We're extremely pleased to announce that Asphyx will be playing a special set of their slowest death/doom (only throwing in a couple buzzing, diabolical tracks for good measure) at the Roadburn Festival 2013 on Saturday, April 20th at Het Patronaat in Tilburg, Holland.
...Especially for Roadburn Festival 2013, Asphyx will put emphasis on their most epic, crushing material, played with guts and balls, and which will guarantee pure doom/death rapture.
Along the way, Asphyx' undisputable influence on many bands that have shredded Roadburn stages will become apparent as well."
Roadburn Festival 2013 will run for four days from Thursday, April 18th to Sunday, April 21st, 2013 (the traditional Afterburner event) at the 013 venue in Tilburg, Holland.
Other acts appearing at Roadburn Festival 2013 include Alcest, Castle, Hour of 13, Jess and the Ancient Ones, Kadavar and many more will be announced soon...
