Asphyx - Deathhammer

I have a huge hard-on for basically anything Martin van Drunen touches. Hail of Bullets, Grand Supreme Blood Court and a few albums from Pestilence and Bolt Thrower. But his home will always be Asphyx, and Deathhammer is both a love song and a kick in the ass to the current state of death/doom metal. Whether it's the title track that kicks the teeth in of false metal bands or the sluggish horror of "As The Magma Mammoth Rises," Asphyx are dark, deep, heavy and painful - just the way it should be. The deluxe edition has their fucking awesome cover of Celtic Frost's "Os Abysmi Vel Daath" which makes it all the easier to recommend this to anyone. 2012's best death/doom record.

Standout tracks: Deathhammer, We Doom You To Death, As The Magma Mammoth Rises
