A new milestone! After the albums "Havoc" (2010) and "Anti" from 2013, which was described as one of the strongest black metal outputs from Austria, the path is clear for the third longplayer "The Cleansing" of the Austrian exceptional Black Metal act Asphagor. For this output, which documents a unique and logical evolution of the band, the successful collaboration with Patrick W. Engel from the Temple Of Disharmony Studio was continued to produce a successor that satisfie the high expectations - and exceed the high mark, which was set with "Anti". One can rightly say that with "The Cleansing" another milestone has been reached and this album will probably be one of the most intelligent and impressive Black Metal releases of the year 2018. Without getting lost in unneccesary production gimmicks, Asphagor create an overall work that is capable of creating an atmospheric density that enthrall you out over the entire 60-minute playing time of the album and leaving you back breathless and deeply impressed.
