Mixing influences and styles, Asylum Pyre can't be shut in a closed and predefined universe. From Speed Metal to Progressive, passing through Lyrical or ambient metal, Asylum Pyre draws elements from multiple genres so as to create its own identity. This band's trademark is to build songs around catchy melodies and rhythms breaks that alternate quiet parts and powerful tempos. The result is both swinging and poignancy for one of the force of Asylum Pyre lays in the messages expressed in its songs.
All the tracks are then well thought and offer a succession of simples and complexes parts, where melodies and lyrics, sung by the original voices of Chaos Heidi and Johann, carry senseful messages all the way through.

Check out "These Trees" the 1st extract of our upcoming album "Fifty Years Later"
(release on december 7th, through Massacre Records)
Far from the worst bit of power metal I've heard this year, that's a fact, doesn't get too stale during the song, and I like the vocals as well (which is rare enough, female vox don't always agree with me), will keep an eye on the release date and try to get a listen in.
After the release of our 2nd album "Fifty Years Later" on dec., 7th 2012 through Massacre Records we spent a lot of time on the road, touring in France mainly.
This week we decided to put online the whole video of our latest show in Marseille, with Myrath.
We are putting online one song from the gig every day and it has begun yesterday with our intro + "Dead In copenhagen"
