In the medical world 'asystole' (assist-o-lee) is a dire form of cardiac arrest in which the heart stops beating and there is no electrical activity in the heart. Asystole is a universal experience that every human will eventually go through, marking a passage from life to death. Sounding in the same vein as Killswitch Engage, Sevendust, and Mudvayne, ASYSTOLE delivers high energy metal with a unique edge that just skates upon the mainstream public eye. Based out of the Boston music scene, Tim Munroe, Art Gordon, Greg Gillis, and J.J. Long have been rehearsing their dynamic sound together since the summer of 2004. Their hard work ethic and overpowering stage performance have captured the hearts of many while subliminally bridging the gap between hardcore and hard rock genres. The Massachusetts area band has accomplished much since it's conception. They currently have a CD out in music stores all over New England, touring experience up and down the east coast, professional write-ups including a spotlight article in the November 2006 issue of Northeast Performer Magazine (40,000+ copies circulated throughout NE), experience being interviewed on college radio, experience opening up for national bands, and the fulfillment of leading a most dedicated street team and ever-growing fan base. They have also just recently been added to the roster as an official JAGERMEISTER band which is a music sponsorship that only 150+ bands in the whole country recieve. ASYSTOLE'S debut EP is a seven-track blend of ambient samples, heart pounding riffs, crunchy screams, passionate melodies, and brutal drums. Lyric wise, every song evokes different feelings of inner torment and mental anguish while the overall messages remain hopeful and true. Through their harmony of hardcore licks and hard rock grooves, accompanied by an explosive live show, ASYSTOLE continues to permeate all spheres of heavy sounding music, leaving audiences in a transfix of enthrallment.
