In 2004, Chemnitz based DJ Pedro Engel founded the project ACYLUM. The East Germans first feature album "YOUR PAIN" (2005) dominated the harsh electro/industrial scene like nothing before. The frequent and fanatical use of provocative samples staged huge controversy mainly in the german press.
Pedro Engel showed his harsh music production skills in the long expected following album MENTAL DISORDER (2007). His style stands out in a sea full of dark elektro sounds. The distorted vocals and a concentrated charge of cold, heavy, radical noise attacks with soft orchestral melody arrangements makes ACYLUM sound so unique.
In 2008, Nadine "Cooraz" Engel joined the project and ACYLUM signed a deal with a belgium based label called Alfa Matrix. This unfolded a new era for the project.
THE ENEMY (2009) was their third and by far the most successful, most provocative and the most discussed album in the history of the project. The feedback on the album ranged from "Best album of the year" to "Please, boycott this album". Both the vocals and lyrics tell a story of the brutal truth about our time. This is what makes ACYLUM what it is now!
The launching procedure to THE ENEMY‘s successor KARZINOM is in the making and is due for release in October 2011. With an improved production process the new album will leave its three ancestors in the dust.
