Apophys Unleash Second Single ‘Deadlock’
Watch The Guitar Playthrough Of ‘Deadlock’ Here:
Dutch death metal bruisers Apophys have unveiled the second single from their forthcoming sci-fi epic Devoratis, set for release January 22nd via Ultimate Massacre Productions. The track, entitled ‘Deadlock’, “is one of the most powerful songs on the album,” states vocalist Kevin Quilligan.
The album 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.”
In regards to the new single Quilligan adds, “this one definitely packs a punch! As you can see in the video there is some serious riffing going on in this one, they make it look easy but I can tell you it’s not. Story wise, ‘Deadlock’ is the chapter where our two main characters meet face to face for the first time. Their embrace is like the embrace of a bear trap. Stuck, painful and possibly fatal..”
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 and Toxocara this is a band with experience and a clear vision and approach to their writing, song structure above technicality. Their debut album was testament to that and seen the band tour 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 among others.
