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!”Also, November 17th, 2017 will mark the long overdue release date for a special and limited anniversary version of ASPHYX’s classic debut album “The Rack” as 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.
