About

Dead Asylum

Label: Independent
since circa 2011
Dead Asylum formed in Vancouver, BC at the end of 2011, and features vocalist/guitarist Mike Lister (ex-Theocide), vocalist/bassist Roger Mowat (God Said Kill), guitarist Eric Morrison (ex-Expain) and drummer Samantha Landa (ex-Scythia). Dead Asylum’s style combines elements of thrash and death with melodic and grooving overtones--and echoes elements of band influences such as Kreator, Amon Amarth and Exodus.

Dead Asylum has become known for its throat-gripping riffs and rhythms and its energetic, balls-to-the-walls live performance. Dead Asylum “is one of those bands that’s hit the ground running” (Abort Magazine). On top of tour dates around the Western US and Canada, they've shared the stage with thrashers Toxic Holocaust, Warbringer and Exmortus; Soulfly and Soilwork; the legendary Anvil; and festival dates with Suffocation, Bison BC and Holy Grail.

Dead Asylum's second album, 'Death Always Wins' (2017) was recorded and edited by Roger Mowat at Jam Factory Studios in Port Coquitlam, BC and mixed and mastered by Chris "Hollywood" Holmes (Korn).

Heavy and melodic, the eight tracks on Dead Asylum's debut album 'General Carnage' (2013) were produced by Nick Engwer and Brady D and mixed/mastered by Chris Holmes.

Songs range from thrashy headbangers, to technical compositions, to chantable, heavy metal anthems. Lyrical themes include revolution and political uprising, the apocalypse, and—as the band name alludes—twisted facets of the human psyche.
