Biography

Houma, New Orleans LA, United States (1991 – 1997)

Formed out of the swamps of Houma, Louisiana in 1991, Acid Bath released their first album, When the Kite String Pops, in 1994. Their second and final album, Paegan Terrorism Tactics, followed in 1996. The band broke up 1997 after the death of bassist Audie Pitre.

It’s impossible to categorize Acid Bath under one genre, as they combined several genres ranging from , , , , , with a strong overtone very similar to Alice in Chains style of doomy metal/grunge on Dirt, but even that doesn’t fully describe the sound of Acid Bath. The variation in their music has reached far from the underground into many , , and bands. Sweeping across many sounds, Acid Bath put forth two albums of considerable influence, opening the door for to be versatile and emotional without sacrificing creative character or the brute force of metal.

Frontman Dax Riggs is currently a solo artist, but was singer/guitarist for Agents of Oblivion, and later deadboy & the Elephantmen. Guitarist Sammy Duet played in Crowbar and is now in Goatwhore.

    Somehow I forgot about their debut live demo 'Screams of the Butterfly' and it's a pretty great treat for fellow Acid Bath fans. The sound quality is actually pretty good and it's pretty cool to hear the original lyrics/structure of some of the songs on WTKSP, very good. It wasn't included on the demo compilation though and I'm not sure why, it's great, the sound quality is great, everything's audible while still remaining that raw, live atmosphere that make live albums even better, the bands performance was tight, Dax's voice actually sounds pretty different when compared to their albums but he still did a good job nonetheless so I'm not sure why they wouldn't have included it.

    There is no band that sounds like Acid Bath, maybe somewhere out there but even then I doubt they're anywhere close to them. [2]

    Before I heard them I always saw them being grouped in with Eyehategod and Crowbar as one of the early sludge bands, so when I finally listened to them I was pleasantly surprised at how diverse their sound was.

    They're way too far from any other sludge band. They had their "grungy" feel, especially on their second record. Does anyone knows bands with a similar sound?
