The Madness Masquerade Ball: The perfect marriage between the spirit of Halloween and the insanity of Asylum 13.We are also proud to present, for the first time ever in Delaware: AESTHETIC PERFECTION!
Besides our incredible lineup of bands and DJs, this evening's festivities include a Burlesque performance, Fire Spinners, fetish performance and play spaces.
Since this is a Masquerade Ball, we're also going to be holding a costume contest with prizes to giveaway for those in the best "insanity" themed costume. Even if you're not trying to win, it's the weekend before Halloween and it's a masquerade... come out, wear a mask, have fun!
"I make music because it is the only thing I know how to do. Writing about my every day struggles is what keeps me sane... some people seem to relate to that. If not, fuck it, I'd still be doing this if no one listened."
Aesthetic Perfection has been taking the industrial dance scene by storm for the last few years, breaking down genre boundaries and redefining what the term "industrial" really means, or should mean, when it comes to music. Daniel Graves writes for himself, not for the "scene," and his passion shows in one incredible track after another.
Originally formed as a duo by Gant and Denman in 2002, DIE SEKTOR were
quickly signed to leading German harsh-EBM label NoiTekk following the
self-release of their 5-track demo “Scraping The Flesh” in 2004.
The acclaimed debut album “To Be Fed Upon”, mastered by Kolja Trelle (SOMAN), was released by NoiTekk in 2006 – and later by Russian label Gravitator in 2007.
Subsequently DIE SEKTOR have remixed several high-profile artists in the electro-industrial scene including DAWN OF ASHES, GRENDEL, and most recently ALIEN VAMPIRES (DWA/Alfa Matrix), CEDIGEST (DWA/NoiTekk), DETROIT DIESEL (DWA/Infacted), and the illustrious and infamous Suicide Commando.
Nekronet is an electro industrial metal band from New York City. Formed
with its current lineup in 2011, Nekronet has been touring the east
coast and is now in the process of recording another full album. West

Keep an eye out for Nekronet's new album, singles, remixes, and shows throughout 2013!
Venal Flesh is a dark electro project from Washington, DC, USA focusing on dark, unsettling atmospheres; heavy, crunchy beats; and complex, multi-layered melodies. It was formed in 2010 by Dan Barrett (aka rhythmic noise act Worms of the Earth) and DJ/model VanityKills; later adding Joseph Myers (aka DJ Biodread) on synths and live keys. This project is based around the concepts and imagery of VanityKills: the juxtaposition and parallels of extreme religious devotion and obsession with physical beauty. Venal Flesh hopes to evolve the dark, heavy sound that was started by the first wave of dark electro/terror ebm acts and create music fitting of the genre’s name.
This man should require no introduction. Front man and officer of verbal assault for the legendary Philadelphia punk band, the Dead Milkmen, Rodney has decided to lend his insane antics to Asylum 13, placing him precariously behind the turntables and with easy access to a microphone.
We can only wonder at the calamity and horror that is likely to ensue.
One of the biggest assholes in the industrial scene, despite also being one of its more talented artists, Steven Archer (of Ego Likeness) is well known throughout the region, and has frequently been on our stage.
This marks the first time he is DJing with us, so we apologize in advance.
Project Two, top DJ at Asylum 13, has been bridging the gap from the bright lights of the trance and house music scenes to the grittier and more aggressive dark alternative community. Project Two fuses his house & dance music background with his current and new love of electro-industrial music, creating hybrid soundscapes that will keep you pounding the dance floor for years to come.
A veteran of the tri-state area goth industrial club scene, DJ Killcrazy weaves together the dark, hard electronic beats to make you move your feets. That might not be grammatically correct, but you've got to break eggs if you want to make an omelet.
