Digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of the New York rockers' 1987 debut. Raging Slab have an illustrious career that goes back 30 years to 1983 when hip young guitar slinger Greg Strzempka met slide guitarist Elyse Steinman in New York City, and the Slab were born. Assmaster is a unique snapshot of the band's independent roots before they were snapped up by major labels (RCA followed by Rick Rubin's American Recordings), and featured full length comic book artwork by Marvel Comics artists Pat Redding and Pete Ciccone. Also included is the True Death EP, originally released by Buy Our Records, as well as 'Earache My Eye' and 'In Contempt' that appeared on the Slabbage compilation in 1991. Disc two is a real treat for all fans of '70s Boogie and Southern Rock, featuring no less than 14 previously unreleased tracks compiled from Greg Strzempka's own personal archive, including brand new remixes made for this set, several unreleased demos and much more.
