Australian thrashers Asylum release 'Sadistic Intent', the second single from their upcoming album 'Tyrannicide'
Brisbane thrash metal titans Asylum have released their second single "Sadistic Intent" from their upcoming album due to be released on the 2nd of September 2022.
‘Sadistic Intent’ challenges one of humanities most horrific crimes. Based on the brutality of human trafficking, ‘Sadistic Intent’ musically portrays this as being one of the most intense songs on the ‘Tyrannicide’ album while lyrically depicting the lives of the victims.
Lead Guitarist Rob Armstrong comments: "‘Sadistic Intent’ delivers on all fronts, its aggressive and in your face but also tackles a very dark part of the human race. Personally, I have always felt that we live in a false sense of safety and this song for me describes what could be lurking around the corner. Musically its dark, intense and melodic – it definitely contains some of my favourite riffs!"

Asylum is a thrash metal band from Brisbane Australia. Since forming in 2012, Asylum has quickly established itself as one of Australia’s hardest working thrash metal bands. The band has released two EPs, "Slaughterhouse" (2013) and "Concealed Death" (2016) which have captivated thrash metal fans locally and overseas. They released a live EP "Live In Melbourne" (2021), but ultimately they have been super hard at work to release their long awaited debut album "Tyrannicide" in 2022.
Asylum's live shows have been described by critics as energetic, engaging and musically flawless. The band have toured regularly around Australia performing at Australia's annual festivals such as LEGIONS OF STEEL (VIC), AUSOCAPLYPSE (VIC), STORMRIDER (WA), SHREDFEST (QLD), STEEL ASSASSINS (NSW), NEW DEAD FEST (SA), CHURCHES OF STEEL (SA) and BODIES ON BODIES (SA).
Over the years, Asylum has supported international touring bands such as ACCEPT, DESTRUCTION, TOXIC HOLOCAUST, VOIVOD, TANKARD, GEOFF TATE, ANVIL, ANGELUS APATRIDA, METAL CHIRCH, ARTILLERY, LICH KING, GIRLSCHOOL, TANK AND RAVEN.
In 2017, Asylum embarked on their first international venture, performing at Japans annual TRUE THRASHFEST, alongside DARKNESS (GER), S.D.I (DER) and DEFILED (JPN).
