Biography

Chicopee, Massachusetts, US (2001 – present)

The Acacia Strain is a metalcore band from Chicopee, Massachusetts, US that formed in 2001. The band have since undergone numerous changes in their lineup. To date, they have released seven studio albums, two split albums, two EPs, and have appeared on the Soundtrack for Homefront. 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

    Their set in Phoenix was insane, one of the best live deathcore bands i've seen hands down.

    i really like The Acacia Strain but their lyrics fluxuate from being pretty great to "boy that was clique" also i really like their dips into being actual Doom metal which i hope they continue to expand upon.

    DITOM took some time to grow on me. Same with the new album. People just need to get over that we're not getting another Dead Walk.

    Observer is a great funeral doom song. It's an unexpected turn for the Acacia strain but it reminded me of the Halls of Amenti EP by Cephalic Carnage that was also one of their best song.

    @MICHAELETRON dude, DITOM was their best album, my favorite album. now the second time listening to CW, and the album doesn't seem shitty. he is better than i expected, but production… great lyrics on this one and vocals sound amazing.

    DITOM is still my favorite TAS album, but the new one is pretty solid. I just loved the Noise Rock leanings on DITOM. The guitar tone was searing.

    also lol at everyone saying DL is missed. maybe old DL, but Wormwood and DITOM were kinda shit so I dunno why everyone wants him back.

    Wow, this album is much better than I was anticipating. It's obvious now, Will Putney is hands down the best producer in deathcore.
