about

The music:

This album marks the beginning of VoidWork. The structures are linear, the melodies simple and the atmosphere oppressive. Made as a whole rather than a combination of elements, Asylum’s strong point is coherence and flow. Something for the cold winter evenings.

The story:

There are places in the world that harbour the souls of those who can not pass. One such place is the fictional Shunville Asylum. Here the old groundskeeper shares the history of the dilapidated institution with anyone who will listen. He spares no grim detail, from the story of the ghosts that inhabit its rooms, past his own encounters with evil entities, to the mythology of obscure Gods worshipped by the staff and inmates.
