APHYXION was formed back in 2007 and has only had one change in the line up since then. 

The young 12-13 year old lads, Michael Vahl, Jakob Jensen, Jonas Haagensen, Jais Jessen and Bertil Rytter made up the line-up of the band through many years. 

It was only in 2017 that guitarist Bertil decided to leave the band to have better time with his family. 

We then decided to contact long time friend Jesper Haas. He was a bass player at the time and had never touched a guitar. But he was quick to accept the challenge of being in a band on the rise, and within 6 months he learned to play the guitar and played some of the biggest gigs in the history of the band, including support for Metallica in front of 16.000 people.
