remembering Asbestosdeath (video, High on Fire, Om…)

by Black Bubblegum

AsbestosdeathBefore High On Fire and Om, there was (and now is) Sleep, but before THAT, there was Asbestosdeath:

Asbestosdeath started life as trio consisting of Al Cisneros on bass, Chris Hakius on drums, and Tom Choi on guitar. Matt Pike later joined as a second guitarist. They recorded two 7″s: their first (“Unclean”, 1990) was self released (Asbestos Records) and a second 7′ (“Dejection,” 1990) was released later that year by Profane Existence. Choi left Asbestosdeath to form Noothgrush after the release of the second 7″. The band recruited Justin Marler to replace Choi and changed their name to Sleep. – [Wikipedia]

High On Fire recently announced that they are working on their new album for their new label, Koch Records. Check out great video of Asbestosdeath live at Gilman in 1990 as well as High On Fire live at Amoeba Records in 2007, below…
