Brushing, flossing, combing, rinsing, and wiping of all vital parts
of ones personal hygiene, some more then others, some less. There is
however one element that when experienced, has such a lasting impact
it must be made a consistent part of everyday routine - the Acid Bath.
Secluded in the outback swamps of the Louisiana bayou in 1991, Acid Bath's
humble inception exploded on the local level after they recorded "Hymns
of the Needle Freak," produced by their then manager Keith Falgout. This
self-promoted demo ultimately lead to their singing with Rotten Records,
which allowed them to work with D.R.I.'s Spike Cassidy to create their
acclaimed debut label release, "When the Kite String Pops." Two years and
three national tours later, Acid Bath is ready to deliver their long awaited
eleven song sophomore album "Paegan Terrorism Tactics." This effort finds them
returning to work with Falgout, to produce such songs as Dead Girl, Bleed Me an
Ocean, Graveflower, Paegan Love Song and New Death Sensation.
Acid Bath has an incredible diversity to their music that lends them the
ability to play with bands from almost any other genre, but it would be
ludicrous to categorize their sound; the result would be too limiting.
Furious, aggressive guitar buzz is supplied by Mike Sanchez and Sammy Duet.
Audie Pitre adds vile, low-end pulsations on bass to fill out the bottom.
Jimmy Kyle uses his characteristic springless snare as a channel to create
exhausting, tooth-grinding beats and often times pushing rhythms. Dax Riggs
contributes the vocal element as if he were the satanic son of Jim Morrison,
with an occasional brutal scream added to the mix by Audie or Sammy.
Together, they fuse numerous musical styles that fall under the category of
loud or heavy creating an intoxicating gumbo that tempts one's palate with
hard-core, gothic, psychedelic-punk and grind. This innovative blend is
insanely exlosive, but creates a breathless intensity and exhilarting flavor
that is easy to swallow. Acid Bath's boundary-busting swamp-core sound conquers
what death metal has yet to encounter.
