Apophys have been making waves since their surfacing in 2012, slowly carving their path in the modern death metal scene. Featuring members from GOD DETHRONED, MELECHESH, and TOXOCARA this is a band with experience and a clear vision and approach to their writing, song structure above technicality. Their debut album PRIME INCURSION (2015) was testament to that and the band then toured internationally with acts such as Vader, Hate Eternal, Dying Fetus, Misery Index, Cattle Decapitation and many others as well as several festival appearances including Eindhoven Metal Meeting and Deathfeast Open Air.
Apophys' new album DEVORATIS meaning "I devour," is based on a science fiction story written by Quilligan. “We wanted to do a concept album but we couldn’t find a fitting concept,” Quilligan shares. “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.” The story is of an unlikely union of two forces against an intergalactic race led by a zealous leader known as Consul.
DEVORATIS was produced by Stefano Morabito and Yuma van Eekelen, and mixed and mastered by Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio Rome. DEVORATIS was released on all digital formats and on CD January 22nd, 2018.
