Affliction Vector has been conceived as an introspective exploration by Ans in 2018.
After the dissolution of Ooze and his separation from Grime, the artist decided to embrace a solitary journey through his own inner demons, choosing isolation and his dissolving mental health as a fuel for his creative flame.
In 2019 drummer Christian Musich (The Secret, Grime) joined the project, projecting his primordial percussive ferocity into the compositions and solidifying the line up.
Inspired by masters like Mayhem, Bolt Thrower and Voivod, Affliction Vector regurgitates its influences into a completely new, unique, self-devouring Death and Black Metal magma that annihilates every boundary between nightmare and reality.
“Death Comes Supreme” is a spirit-possessed descent into suffering without any expectation of catharsis or cleansing. It’s the sound of an artist abandoning his mind into his own inner chaos, a realm dominated by demons.

If Deftones played black metal and were from Iceland. Massive aggression, intense vocals, impressive musicianship. Only drawback: foreign characters make it nigh-impossible to search for in my music player. Worth the effort. Kurt Hagen

The guitar tone and fullness of the mix is unbearably heavy and punishing. The pulsing nature creates the swarming atmosphere of guilt and despair. One of the best albums I’ve heard in awhile Will Brown
