In the late ’80s, before the mighty formation of Sleep: Al Cisneros (Bass/Vocals), Chris Hakius, and Matt Pike (Guitar) played together along with Thomas Choi (Guitar) in Asbestosdeath. Abestosdeath is the roots of the oak that branched into the massive creation of not only Sleep but of course Om (Al and Chris), High on Fire (Matt) and It Is I/Operator Generator (Thomas Choi). Asbestosdeath was short-lived and only existed long enough to record 4 songs that were released on 2 separate 7”s. Unclean was released by the band. The other, Dejection, was released by Profane Existence.

In 2007, Southern Lord reissued Asbestosdeath’s two 7”s on CD and 10” vinyl.

    What's with that stupid camel-case/web 1.0/Apple-product typo? The band is from the early 1990ies when StupidCompositeWords[tm] weren't cool, and they're called Asbestosdeath with a lowercase d. Seems it can't be fixed by suggesting a correction as well, believes it's the same name, with or without camel-case.
