The first full length, Earth Entangled, is produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Aborted, Epica) and APHYXION’s own guitarist, Jonas Haagensen. A good cooperation during the recordings secured and tight and powerful sound on the album, which was received very well both domestically and internationally. After the release, the editor of Metal Hammer UK called out APHYXION to be “… the new saviours of melodic death metal – one of the most promising bands in Europe!”
The newest album, Aftermath, was released in december 2016 and marked a new era for APHYXION. The album reflected a bigger and more modern sound from the young boys, and was quickly chosen as “Album of the Week” by Metal Hammer Germany, while Metal Hammer UK pointed it out as a contestant for “Album of the Year”.

Let’s see what Aphyxion has to say about Vocalzone!
“Vocalzone saves me all the trouble of worrying about my voice before going on stage to perform. It gives instant relief and hasn’t failed me yet. I’d recommend it to all who uses their voice as a part of their profession.”
