Since the band was formed in 2007 – all members in their mid-teens – APHYXION has been going through a major development both musically and mentally. The young boys have gathered a rather good reputation by their appearances on prestigious festivals such as Wacken Open Air and Copenhell, massive touring in Europe and shows played alongside well established bands both inside and outside of Denmark. APHYXION has managed to play nearly 100 shows before the age of 20. They have a prominent willpower that is always increasing.
APHYXION has managed to release a handful of EP’s: ”Eradication of Fates” (2009) and ”Obliteration of the Weak” (2010) – which gave them the confidence and experience to work towards a full album. At an early state, the band teamed up with highly experienced and professional people which secured the high quality of all their written material. All releases were well received by the Danish metal press.
Their very first full-length album, “Earth Entangled” is produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Aborted, Mercenary e.g.) and the APHYXION’s own guitarist, Jonas Haagensen.
A perfect teamwork during the recordings of the album has ensured a tight and powerful sound. Strong riffs, melodic choruses, ass-kicking breakdowns and mind-blowing vocals are all aspects of “Earth Entangled”. A strong combination of catchy guitar-riffs and groovy death/thrash metal makes this album stand out.
The new album Aftermath which was released December 2016 saw the band rise from promising to established on the Nordic metal market. Changing it up a bit, the young five piece hit hard with their heavy riffage and huge choruses. Metal Hammer Germany picked it as Album Of The Week, whilst Metal Hammer UK named it contender for album of the year. The band was praised all over the world, which recently amounted to a nomination at the annual GAFFA Awards for Metal album of the year. Their high praises also caught the eye of the fans. After only 30 days on the digital platforms (Spotify, Tidal, Apple, YouTube) the band streamed 500.000 times which is a new record for a Danish death metal band.
