Beauty For Ashes

Beauty For Ashes is the first of two albums by The Sabians. Recorded circa November 2001 and released May 2002 via The Music Cartel, it features two founding members of Sleep in Justin Marler and Chris Hakius in what would be their first recorded material together in a decade, last working together on the 1991 album Volume One. The band had signed to The Music Cartel on 31 May 2001[1] and would announce on 27 July 2001 that they would record in November with Alex Newport (Fudge Tunnel, Nailbomb), who had recorded with the likes of Melvins, The Mars Volta, Sepultura and At The Drive-In.[2] Following touring in the Fall with Totimoshi and two songs premiered in February 2002, the album would see release that May.

Beauty For Ashes would attain generally positive reviews from the likes of AllMusic,[3] Exclaim![4] and several other publications.[5] Beauty For Ashes would reach #3 on Metal Maniacs' top ten hard rock albums of 2002.[6]
