Badass Band Alert: Asylum
Get in here and learn about Asylum, a blackened tech-death band from Forth Worth, Texas!
I don’t remember exactly how I heard about these guys, but I’m willing to bet it was Youtube recommendation related… Here’s the first song I heard. It’s killer. Check it out:
It’s unlike anything I’ve heard. It has the technicality of tech death, only without being over the top. On the other hand, it has the atmosphere and vocals that you might expect from black metal. It’s like what would happen if Skeletonwitch and Enfold Darkness had a baby.
I received my physical copy of Committed in the mail just the other day, and it came with a hand-written thank you note from the band. That kind of thing is just cool and it earned them even more points in my book. These guys care about their fans.
