Biography

Chicopee, Massachusetts, US (2001 – present)

The Acacia Strain is a heavy band from Chicopee, Massachusetts, US that formed in 2001. The band have since undergone numerous changes in their lineup. To date, they have released five studio albums, as well as two split albums. The Acacia Strain have said they dislike genre labels, and instead describe themselves as “Heavy.” “You might hear other music that sounds like it, but those bands can’t touch what we have. We have heart. We mean it.” Lyrically, they base their music on “hatred, nihilism, humanity’s dependence on technology, and abhorrence for existence.”

The current lineup consists of:
Vincent Bennett - lead vocals
Jack Strong - bass, backing vocals
Kevin Boutot - drums, percussion
Devin Shidaker - lead guitar
Richard Gomez - rhythm guitar

    i would consider it metalcore or deathcore. its more deathcore-ish but it isnt pure hardcore either. i think their somehow created their own genre between those three haha

    Haven't listened to these guys in a while. Do they still have as big of a following as they did when Continent came out?

    I use to like whitechapel, but like it says in the bio You might hear other music that sounds like it, but those bands can’t touch what we have. We have heart. We mean it." Whitechapel just became another one of those were trying to hard to be heavy bands for me no substance to it

    TAS isn't deathcore and the fact that Whitechapel is listed as a similar artist proves how fucking stupid people are.
