Remnants

Songfacts®:

  • This instrumental opens Asylum, the fifth studio album by American heavy metal band Disturbed. It was originally meant to be combined with the title track to make a 7:30 long song, but instead it was split into two parts in order to open the record and set the mood. Also it was felt the longer version of "Asylum" might not be played on the radio so it was divided up for a radio edit.
