ASYLUM: Self-titled: 7”

This is the type of band that could be on Profane Existence’s roster if the songs were more politically minded. Don’t get me wrong, this band has very intelligent lyrics and content, they just tend to lean on the human spirit for subject matter. The song “Shitshow” focuses on ridding yourself of apathetic behavior and taking assertive action or you’ll, “endure a blind existence with a faint, tepid heart.” This is what I’m talking about—the words are beautiful, and the strong message is there. Musically, they’re angsty hardcore punk with a metal tinge. Fans of Nausea, Appalachian Terror Unit, and Skarp will enjoy. Good stuff. Seek it out.
