These two “30 Year Anniversary” concerts will not only be supported by metal comrades Pentacle and Soulburn, but also feature long ASPHYX sets, special merchandise and Meet & Greet opportunities with former band members like Eric Daniels, Bob Bagchus, Wannes Gubbels, Ronnie van der Wey, Roel Sanders or Sander van Hoof.

Tickets go on sale today and will sell out quickly, hurry and reserve yours now here! Further details can also be found directly on the venue’s website: http://www.turock.de.

ASPHYX have checked in with the following message about the anniversary shows:
“Salutations Asphyxians! Due to the unexpected, rapid sell out of our 30 years anniversary show in Turock, Essen, Germany on November 18th, for which our massive gratitude, we decided for those who could not obtain a ticket, to do an extra show the very next day. So, Sunday the 19th of November 2017. Same bill, same set, same goodies, same price. Just a little earlier, doors open at 15.00 hours, so everybody can get back to work on time the next day. Cheerz and see you all in November!”

November 17, 2017 will also mark the long overdue release date for a special and limited anniversary version of ASPHYX’s classic debut album, “The Rack”, as a double-album, containing both the original album as well as a special bonus version of the entire album sequence covered by friends and peers of the group. More details and formats of this project will be unveiled soon, so stay tuned!

It was once again mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studio and entered the official sales charts in various European countries upon release as follows: Germany: # 30, Switzerland: # 67 and Belgium (Wallonia): # 78.
