Bad Acid Trip

Bad Acid Trip is an experimental grindcore band that is currently signed with Serj Tankian’s record label, Serjical Strike. They have been recording music since the early 1990’s, but it wasn’t until 1999 with the release of For the Weird By the Weird that they began reaching wider audiences. Serjical Strike first began releasing BAT’s work in 2004, with a reissue of For the Weird, and Lynch the Weirdo, produced by Daron Malakian (System of a Down). After scoring a slot on Ozzfest’s second stage in 2006, the band began touring less to begin working on new material.

Recently they announced that an EP, Symbiote Slavery, would be released by the end of 2009, in lieu of an album. An album is still in the works, albeit with no release date, titled Humanly Possible.

Guitarist Kieth Aazami has cited (among others) Brutal Truth, Primus, Death, Jane’s Addiction, Minor Threat, and King Crimson as influencing Bad Acid Trip’s sound.

    I remember their set from Ozzfest 06. Very energetic stuff, definitely a cool band.

    Somewhere between my old comment and this one, I fell in love with the older work and disappointed with the new. It isn't so much they got worse, but their commitment to music seems to have fallen. They don't tour, they don't update the fans, and music is released infrequently. They were one of my favorite bands... now I didn't even know Humanly Possible was released.

    Y'all are too touchy. I always prefer the grittier, more punk-driven sounds, but changing their sound to be less grind isn't selling out. Having all the production quality of Anal Cunt isn't very appealing. There is some enjoyment to be had in more coherent lyrics.

    I will admit the biography on here makes them seem shitty, but I'm not one to judge on that. I have their Remember EP from like 1995, which was released on Slap-A-Ham, and that's good? And the only 'new' song I've heard was "Plate of Shrimp", which is really sick. It's not really different, the production values are just very good. Still has that Chris Dodge-like SWAGGGGG vocals, so I'll see if I can find Lynch the Weirdo somewhere.
