“‘What We Will Be’ is a song unlike any other on our new album Devoratis,” claims vocalist Kevin Quilligan of Dutch death dealers APOPHYS. “The way the song grows as it progresses and the fact that it’s not based on whirlwind blastbeats and riffs gives it something special. It is very welcome with the way we are growing as ourselves as well. It’s the start of new creativity in Apophys and one of my personal favourites on the album.”
Taken from their forthcoming sci-fi epic “Devoratis”, set for release January 22nd via Ultimate Massacre Productions, ‘What We Will Be’ is undoubtedly a departure from most of the album, more ethereal, but yet just as majestic and as crushingly heavy in its own right.
Listen To ‘What Will Be’ Here:
The album is based on a science fiction story written by Quilligan. “We wanted to do a concept album but we couldn’t find a fitting concept,” Quilligan shares. “So we decided to write it ourselves. Together with all the members we fashioned our own tale to tell which has given a whole new meaning to our music.”

APOPHYS have been making waves since their surfacing in 2012, slowly carving their path in the modern death metal scene. Featuring members from God Dethroned and Toxocara this is a band with experience and a clear vision and approach to their writing, song structure above technicality. Their debut album was testament to that and seen the band tour internationally with acts such as Vader, Hate Eternal, Dying Fetus, Misery Index, Cattle Decapitation and many others as well as several festival appearances including Eindhoven Metal Meeting and Deathfeast Open Air among others.
