REISSUE: Dead Southern Bishop's 2nd EP, "Hymns of Malice and Discontent".

The album also includes 5 bonus tracks recorded in 2009 for their self titled debut.

Once upon a time I found myself dredging through the various underground websites in search of some new Southern Sludge (as I still do everyday) when I stumbled across this band from Georgia with the most beautiful and inviting name, "Dead Southern Bishop". I looked all over trying to find some way to buy their album but to my dismay it was very elusive. It was completely "underground", so far underground that it was an impossible task which actually added to the allure of my needing it that much more. I never did find a printed version of the only album they had out at the time. Over the years I wound up reaching out to the band after I started working for an online metal station and I was finally able to acquire digital versions of their debut self-titled EP as well as "Hymns of Malice and Discontent" which they had just released. Needless to say this band has been on my radar for many, many years, so when I started Swamp Metal Records one of my first endeavors was to get these guys signed. Well, it has finally all come to pass and my goal now is to put this album in your hands! The music that I have sought after since 09/10 will be readily available. It will be in their hands at gigs for you to purchase, and for those of you like me, digging through the online underworld you will now be able to buy it with the click of a button from anywhere in the world. With all that said, I have also taken measures to keep the underground integrity of the albums perfectly intact. They have not been altered in any way. The two EP's that we have combined for this special release are precisely as they were when I was searching high and low for them. I hope that you will enjoy this CD as much as I will. I'm eagerly anticipating owning a copy of this for myself...FINALLY! Jack, SMR
