PAUL AT KINSON
THE AXXED ASYLUM PROJECT 2011 - 2014 (&2019)
Axxed Asylum is a solo project of Paul AT Kinson (ex Skyclad, Battleaxe, Jess Cox Band, Secret Sam, Bob Dee with Petro-UK). The project started whilst writing and producing the album 'Heavy Metal Sanctuary' in 2011. Frustrations were running high in the Battleaxe camp so Paul made the Axxed Asylum project a release for his own music, which was taking on an unwelcome style in the band.
Paul teamed up with Roddy Bvevino, a Brazilian born singer and began the process of recording material. The first track they recorded together was entitled 'Into The Fire', a cliched song title, but it helped form what was to be a great recording relationship between Roddy and Paul for the next 3 years.
With the first track experiment done, it was time to produce something better, and the next track was....'Afterlife'. The song was a great success in production terms, but it would also turn out to be the recording Roddy was most proud of, and rightly so.
Work on the project was difficult due to other commitments, but it ran from 2011 until 2014, with a alternate version of Afterlife produced as a demo in 2019.
Roddy died in 2017 after a short battle with cancer, leaving a wife and child and a host of talented musician friends who had shared many stages with him since his arrival in England.
