Asylum is a 6 piece alternative metal band hailing from Preston who are heavily influenced by many bands in the rock/metal genre. Inspired by the theatrical, Asylum have put just as much effort into their on stage appearance and performance as their music. Which is dark, melodic and thunderous. Their wall of sound is complimented by powerful lyrics as well as a solid and energetic stage show and full force asylum can and have proven to be a force to be reckoned with.


Brief history: - Angelis La Vantae deciding on a symphonic element recruited Will Thompson on keyboards to join drummer Kieran Hodgson, guitarist Kev Balshen and bass guitarist Dave Marshall to form Asylum in July 2002. Later Adam Hall was to join Asylum as a second bass guitarist. This was to be the line up until February 2005 when drummer, Kieran left the band to be replaced with Danny McMahon. It was also decided around this time to drop the two bass guitars idea so Adam now plays second guitar. During 2016 Asylum played in excess of twenty gigs including some large events such as the outdoor event on Avenham Park, Preston. Other important gigs were support slots to The Damned, Malibu Stacey and The Black Velvets. Another band Asylum had the pleasure of supporting was Torsohorse who’s extensive UK tour is currently featured in Kerrang. Asylum’s "Oblivion 2005" tour is currently going on with gigs around Lancashire
