As previously reported here at Stargazed Magazine, the Dutch band Asphyx will release their 10th full studio album, “Necroceros”, on January 22nd, 2021 via Century Media Records.

The album’s first single “Botox Implosion” has a video filmed by Maurice Swinkels / Younique Film (Legion Of the Damned, Exodus, Kataklysm, etc.) that can be seen here:

ASPHYX line-up (from left to right): Stefan “Husky” Hüskens (drums), Paul Baayens (guitars), Alwin Zuur (bass), Martin van Drunen (vocals).

Asphyx frontman Martin van Drunen checked in about the song and its video as follows:  We actually wanted to film this on Sunset Boulevard LA, where most of the pathetic subjects of this song have their residence, but due to the pandemic it was best not to fly over to the USA. So since it’s a fast shredding and written in the typical humorous death metal gore tradition track, we put a few laughable elements in it. Fortunately good old Turock in Essen was so friendly to let us film there and where we’re usually not that keen on shooting videos, with this one we had quite some fun. Still, it is a helluva brutal tune!”
