Xasthur vs. Acid Enema

This split has long been out of print and highly sought after. Xasthur should need no introduction. The one-man entity from Los Angeles has left an indelible mark on the world of American black metal. Of Xasthur's rather large discography, this is some of his best work. Acid Enema are another black metal band from L.A. Oddly enough, Acid Enema started out doing gabber and hardcore techno music and crossed over to black metal shortly before this release. It works. This was originally released on cd by Total Holocaust Records in 2002.

The best part of that is definitely godflesh 'streetcleaner' on cassette. Enjoy, it's a great listen.

If anything can be said about Xasthur... It's that their logo is truly awesome.
