Before there was Sleep, before there was OM, High On Fire, there was Asbestosdeath. The band recorded two long-out-of-print singles, collected here on this specially priced EP for the first time. Check out the luxuriously languid "Nails" to hear the unique writing
style that Al Cisneros, Matt Pike and Chris Haikus would bring to perfection in the coming years; listen to the mind-expanding "Scourge" for more and study hard at the altar of "Anguish." True, that track and its successor, "The Suffering" prove much rawer, even
at times, less interesting than the other cuts but why split hairs when you're about to drink from the Holy Grail of modern 'eavy rock? (OK, maybe the Holy Big
Gulp.) Are ye a collector? Snatch it up.
