Last One On Earth is a solid album of death-doom metal. On vocals, legendary Martin Van Drunen delivers his trademark low deep growl, with the occasional high-pitched scream. Asphyx music weaves in and out between slow dense rhythms, heavy as anything, and then braking into dense bursts of pure death metal. Released in 1992, Last One On Earth would be the third and last time Martin Van Drunen recorded with Asphyx, the first of course being 1991s The Rack and the 1992 EP Crush The Cenotaph (included as bonus on this re-press). Even though both albums sound very similar, this album has a more violent and aggressive sound in most of its songs. Asphyx music is not intricate and fancy, no 100 mile per hour double drum blasts, no elaborate guitar solos or sophisticated bass patterns. Asphyx is the true definition of old school death metal. The music is simple, yet the riffs and over all rhythms all come together to form an evil and raw sound. This album is a must for every single death metal fan, the bands ability to churn out riff after riff of head banging proportions really amazes me and will make you yearn for the death metal of the early 90s!
