    "Laughing into forever, acid party under the sun, slow motion, tranquilized, stop confusion taste the bullet, suck away the pain. A soft rope and dirty needles whisper suicide, whisper escape. Handcuffed the king - blue sun ripples inside insect circles - the dead. I'm bored, bone the innocence, love pain. Suck! Kill the queen and whisper we want freedom. Let's rape again nowhere avenue - slowly fade, trippin' free. Trip with the sun, hum, the whisper of screaming anti-freedom"

    Just noticed that in the lyrics section of the booklet for WTKSP there are some apparently randomly bolded words that, if put together, form sort of a "message". I don't know the reasons behind this but I find the thing incredibly cool

    Actually it's true, i've never heard of another sludge band or anything similar to acid bath. There's just no way you can top Dax's voice.

    "Someone on metal archives gave "When the kite string pops" a 76%. Let's lynch that guy." I was thinking the exact same thing.

    There is no band that sounds like Acid Bath, maybe somewhere out there but even then I doubt they're anywhere close to them. [3]
