"Madman Industry" (Self-released; 2009)
Reviewed by Snidermann
"Madman Industry" is an interesting study into the strange, twisted imagery that is Asylum.
This band is aptly named; the songs are very weird in a sick way. That is both a good thing and a bad thing. The musicianship of the band is undeniable; they know how to put together a song and the sound is strong.
Now for the negative: it sounds like the band is trying too hard to make a statement and the entire project suffers. The songs tend to be depressing and the world is too small for depressing music. Maybe if the band just relaxed a little and let the music flow, it would come out cleaner.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
