SHADOW KINGDOM RECORDS unearths
80s heavy/doom demos from ASYLUM




SHADOW KINGDOM RECORDS has unearthed and will release the demo tapes from ASYLUM, titled 'The Earth Is The Insane Asylum Of The Universe,' one of the many underground gems that made up the legendary doom metal scene of Maryland in the 1980s.

A posting on the official record label's website about the release reads: "The legendary Maryland Doom Metal scene was and still is filled with monster bands! ASYLUM (who later changed their name to UNORTHODOX at their old record label's request) is yet another underground gem, never officially released. With only copies of this tape being spread (known as the 1985 Demo) around in trading circles since the time of its recording, this was one of the harder demos to find.

Now for the first time in 23 years, this recording is officially being released. What a treat this is for 80ís metal fans too because what most people donít know is that Dale Flood (guitarist/vocalist) is an absolute magician on the axe. His style derives from Progressive 70ís Rock like RUSH, YES, DEEP PURPLE, etc mixed with the thunderous and mighty Doom/Heavy riffs from likes of PENTAGRAM, BLACK SABBATH, MOTORHEAD, etc. This is all played together with an amazing rhythm section featuring of the most underrated drummers in heavy metal: Ronnie Kalimon. This album has its own mark and sound in the underground and believe me this is no carbon copy of any other band; their unique sound speaks for itself and stands alone! The amazing thing about this recording is that is sounds fresh and new even though its 23 years old.

If you love 70ís Heavy Rock, 80ís Heavy Metal and Doom, you wonít believe your ears! This is the very first ASYLUM demo released with all its flaws from low budget recording and if you like this, thereís plenty more in the ASYLUM vault to be released in the future."

Besides MERCYFUL FATE, this is one of the best Demos ever. The songwriting is unbelievable! I never heard something so technical, yet so groovy in the same breath.

There's a bunch of demos... I think most of them if not all of them are on thrashmegeddon. They're all solid, some songs over lap though..
