Autodigestion by Asbest








Asbest are a Basel, Switzerland based trio whose sound is based on post punk, shoegaze and noise rock motifs. The band is connected to the LGBTQIA+ movement, and with their new album Cyanide they aim "to condemn the compulsions of modern society: pressure to succeed, self-optimisation, self-exploitation."

The group's scorching new single, Autodigestion, is a strange and ferocious noise rock track that encloses their overall fervor.

The band describe: "Autodigestion begins with a forceful riff that dissolves into a slow lament, decrying our imprisonment in a system created by ourselves, destroying itself and only propped up as an end itself. It suggests a dystopia in which humans are reduced to their functions – exploited systematically, existing and being allowed to participate only in order to consume. Any attempt to break out falls due to the impossibility of finding a true life in the false one."

Asbest, which consists of Robyn Trachsel (vocals, guitar), Judith Breitinger (vocals, bass), and Jonas Häne (drums). Their new album Cyanide will be out in 2023.
