Acid Bath was a band I loved for many years to the point of obsession.
I remember seeing their Gacy/Kevorkian cover art and being intrigued at a young formitable age.
Then I heard some associate burnout cheesily singing the lyrics to "jezebel" whilst taking blotters and finally checked them out.
I bought "when the kitestring pops" and was instantly blown away.
Dax Riggs... awesome singer/lyricist. All the way up to the early years of Deadboy & The Elephantmen.

I saw someone mention how gay goatwhore is in the Midnight thread and wondered what you guys think of the acid bath?

do they have the hold-up power of Incantation?
or are they jump-da-fuc-up inspiring nu-metal with darker lyrics?

Great band, still unique and original as when their albums came out.
They had much more talent than more mainstream acts such as AiC for sure.

I always find it odd how the key players from that whole NOLA scene never ever mention them...

Great band. One of my first forays into extreme, or darker metal, anyways. I remember learning the main riff from "Scream of the Butterfly" on guitar to impress my cousins who'd got me into them... Laughing Dax Riggs' vocals are amazing and one of a kind.

I heard somewhere on the forums that the vinyl versions of these albums are complete shit sound wise, can anyone confirm/deny? I'd like to pick them up sometime assuming they're not.

Have clear version here of 'Kite String.' It's okay sound quality - a bit thin. Quite possibly came direct from CD. Not sure in what state the masters are but would think a better cut is possible.

The layout on the jacket is however pretty nice.

One of my favorite bands and one of the few bands whose releases I prefer on CD, have both vinyls and neither sound as good as the CD versions. Someone should do a proper repress of their material on vinyl one day. Some of the Deadboy stuff is ok too.

Maybe not as good as Eyehategod or Crowbar from the NOLA scene, but I've always loved the band's guitar tone and random switches between death metal-ish sections to sludge. Dax's vocals are a bit of a mixed bag at times, but the band were unique in their scene

This would be cool, seeing as the current vinyl versions are apparently sub par.
