The band’s name

Asylum Pyre… Ringing like an original name, has a heavy meaning.
The place where you burn the fools… and those considered as fool because of their differences! The Asylum is not only material. It can be the result of exclusion or segregation. In the manner of the way the metal world is judged… As the story unfolded in “The Asylum Pyre” explains it, the goal of this song, and of the band, is to reverse the pyre against all these inanities and particularly the prejudices…
