Asylum 8 are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of industrial and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Repressed" which will be released in November by Inverse Records.
Industrial and ebm elements start off the album while also mixing in with the heavier sections of the songs along with the vocals being mostly death metal growls and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion as well as some power metal vocals also being utilized at times.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while screams are also utilized at times and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard along with the riffs also bringing in a decent amount of melody and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and they close the album with a cover of David Hasselhoff's "True Survivor".
Asylum 8 plays a musical style that takes industrial, ebm and death metal and mixes them together with a touch of power metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion Asylum 8 are a very great sounding mixture of industrial and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Disarray" "Passing" and "Deliverance". 8 out of 10.
