Asphyx. The Rack itself wasn’t the product of a foursome, however. Loomans, ever the troublemaker, bowed out, leaving Daniels, Bagchus and van Drunen in a proverbial sweatbox. With songs to reconfigure – 80 percent of The Rack originated from the band’s label-free debut, Embrace the Death – lyrics to recast and a deadline looming for a nascent Century Media, Asphyx could have easily ended it with a slice to the neck.
