Asphyx checked in with the following comment:

After just hearing the news that we entered the German charts on number 3, we all thought we didn’t get it correctly. Like, they forgot the 0 of 30. But after a double confirmation it appeared to be bloody true! So, from the bottom of our death doom metal hearts, a massive THANKS to everybody for making “Necroceros” such an amazing success!

 Words cannot describe how pleased we are that after all the hard work of us as ASPHYX, everybody involved in creating the album and all at Century Media/Sony, you, our highly appreciated and loyal fans gave us the biggest reward possible! We cross our fingers that we can celebrate this with you all very soon in the near future!

 For now, from Martin, Paul, Alwin and Husky; a thunderous and grand CHEERZ!”

Asphyx recently performed a special and highly successful live-stream release show for “Necroceros” on January 23rd, 2021 at the “Metropool” venue in Hengelo, The Netherlands.
