ASPID's 'Extravasation' Released On CD For The First Time

"Extravasation", a long-lost thrash gem from Russian four-piece ASPID, has been released for the first time on CD. Prior to now, only a very small number of vinyl copies and some very low-budget tapes were ever released — both near-impossible to track down. The world now has a chance to hear what they should have 15 years ago.

Russia's ASPID was only together as a band for a few short years in the early 1990s, recording its debut full-length (entitled "Krovoyziliyanie", meaning "Extravasation" in English) in 1992 at a prestigious Russian studio. All the ingredients were there for a very successful career: Musicianship, production, vision, and songwriting as impressive as the abilities of its creators. Unfortunately, the album was released in very small numbers on vinyl, and later, tape, meanwhile ASPID disbanded, resulting in the album and band vanishing from the radar before having a chance to leave a mark.

Stigmartyr Records in conjunction with ant[ICON] Laboratories obtained permission to reissue the album which has been remastered for the CD format.

According to a press release, "Extravasation" is best described as "an epic, theatrical exercise in progressive thrash excellence. Leading listeners on a dynamic journey, with constant pace shifts, sterling musicianship, very impressive production, a punishing guitar tone, strong vocal performance and excellent bass-work. 'Extravasation' is a very dramatic record, often feeling like an a-grade thriller. Fans of progressive/technical thrash (the likes of CORONER, VOIVOD, MEKONG DELTA etc) are especially likely to enjoy the CD."

The 2007 reissue of ASPID's "Extravasation" includes all eight original tracks, clocking in at almost 45 minutes, and includes the original cover artwork which has been refined and enhanced, in addition to brand new full-color internal layout which includes a six-page booklet featuring a band photo, considerable liner notes and more.
