Acid Bath. The name alone brings imagery of horror and disgust. And the rest of the album completely lives up to those themes. When The Kite String pops is one of the most gripping, terrifying yet real and emotional records I have ever heard, metal or otherwise. Aligning heavy metal prowess and malice with poetic and meaningful lyricism, and a little bit of everything in the vast genre, Acid Bath have crafted an extreme metal masterpiece that will be remembered and adored for ages to come.
a lot of this reminds me of the kind of corny 90s grunge/metal hybrid you'd hear during a chase scene in sons of anarchy but sometimes they get really sad too ("scream of the butterfly" is every bit as emotional as the title sounds)
I think Acid Bath should be better, well known that is. This would be the first Acid Bath album that i own, and its no dissapointment in any really big ways. The opener "The Blue" is a great opener to a great cd. But not the best tracks. If someones wanting to get into new stuff to play bass to, look no further. As there are many good songs on here for bass, but "Scream Of The Butterfly is the funnest and easiest to learn. It is in fact the slowest song on the album. I wouldn't really know what to classify Acid Bath under. But if I had to I would say Gothic style Metal, something on those lines. These dudes hail from New Orleans, and to my understanding, none of them was injured physically be Katrina earlier this year.
