Apophys have announced their brand new album Devoratis, a concept album based around life the universe and everything and it has an absolutely killer single “Retaliate” which you can listen to right here!
Dutch Metal is known for its no nonsense attitude and for good reason! Releasing their Metal Blade debut Prime Incursion back in 2015 Apophys left an impact on me that last long after the awesome intro featuring an excerpt from I Am Legend had finished! Announcing today that their brand new album Devoratis, latin for I Devour will be released January 22nd 2018, Apophys are sure to be kicking the year off in style.
Fan of the concept album, singer and all round gentleman Kevin Quilligan states :
“We wanted to do a concept album but we couldn’t find a fitting concept. So we decided to write it ourselves. Together with all the members we fashioned our own tale to tell which has given a whole new meaning to our music.”
Given their impressive touring history with the likes of Cattle Decapitation, Vader, Dying Fetus and Immolation Apophys are a band that are doing something different in the genre. New single “Retaliate” is merely one element of the story but from what I’ve heard so far, this band are onto something truly special. Featuring Sci-Fi influenced concept and pin point accuracy and not to mention drafting in Stefano Morabito and Yuma van Eekelen on production duties at 16th Cellar Studios in Rome, its sure to be a fantastic release to kick off 2018. One that if you’re a fan of Death Metal you certainly won’t want to miss out on.
