Acid Bath

While they didn't gain much more than a cult following during their existence, Louisiana's Acid Bath has since attained a somewhat legendary status in the darker corners of the rock/metal underground. Their style -- a blend of Black Sabbath-like sludge, bluesy Southern rock, death metal, hardcore, and hints of goth and industrial -- remains difficult to pigeonhole, having elicited comparisons to everyone from fellow Bayou-dwellers Soilent Green and Eyehategod to less extreme acts such as Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, and '90s-era Corrosion of Conformity. Formed in 1991, the Kenner, L.A.-based group consisted of Dax Riggs (vocals), Mike Sanchez (guitar, backing vocals), Sammy Pierre Duet (guitar, backing vocals), Audie Pitre (bass, backing vocals), and Jimmy Kyle (drums). They recorded their first demo, Hymns of the Needle Freak, with the help of producer/manager Keith Falgout. This led to a deal with California's Rotten Records, which released the band's debut CD in 1994. Entitled When the Kite String Pops, the album was produced by D.R.I.'s Spike Cassidy and featured artwork by infamous serial killer John Wayne Gacy. Two years later, Acid Bath returned with the Falgout-produced Paegan Terrorism Tactics, this time with a painting by suicide doctor Jack Kevorkian gracing the cover. This album leaned in a more melodic hard rock direction, while still featuring a heavy dose of the sort of menacing metal that characterized much of When the Kite String Pops. Both of these albums earned positive reviews, however, neither managed to establish the band all that well outside of their home state and its surrounding area.

Unfortunately, before they were able to release any more material, bassist Pitre was killed in a drunk-driving accident (the other driver was at fault). This effectively brought Acid Bath's career to a close -- rumors of another album circulated for a while, but ultimately nothing else surfaced. Riggs and Sanchez went on to form the band Agents of Oblivion, while Duet joined fellow Louisiana metal outfit Crowbar on guitar in addition to forming the black metal group Goatwhore. Meanwhile, Rotten Records maintained its plans to release a home video featuring live performances along with the video for When the Kite String Pops' "Toubabo Koomi." ~ William York, Rovi

GLEN RAMBO FROM SOILENT GREEN GOD REST HIS SOUL ALSO (KATRINA GOT HIS THAT BIG B**CH) GOING ALL OVER LA. TO SEE THEM. MANY MANY EARLY MORNINGS IN THE QUATER THATS FOR SURE....THOS E WERE GREAT TIMES... THANKk MOTHER EARTH FOR THE GREAT MEMORIES....
acid bath was the s**t,me and my boy ruled the pit at papa joe,s
My fav songs by these guys are Dr Suess is Dead, Bleed Me an Ocean, What Color is Death and Godmachine but they are an awesome band i love them too bad the band isnt together still they have an original sound and Dax is Awesome love his voice
I had the pleasure of watching these guys many times in the mid 90's. I had seen so many awesome shows during the 90's. NOTHING compares to acid bath in those small south Louisiana venues!!!!!! The most amazing band I have ever seen! I never left with a shirt on. Mosh pits were ridiculous

Acid bath played shows all over in early ninety's. They drove a school bus with green spray paint and a rat fashioned on the hood . I was in a local band that got to share the stage with them I felt so lucky.

Seen them twice. Loved it both times(what I remember). Ruined many speakers in my vehicles cranking acid bath. Still have the original tapes I got from the shows. Yup. Im bragging.
satan himself loves it!!!!!
Yes, music to bleed to.
still one of the greatest bands ever.
crazy the popularity now I drove through the park in another state and heard someone blaring it from their house..I wanted to stop and hug them
Oh what could have been....I wish they had made 10 albums.
Are you f**king kidding me? Dax Riggs is a douchebag. Refers to his fans as sheep. At a Houston concert, a friend of mine scored some pills for him. Acid Bad is forever badass..but Dax not so much.
The God machine is hungry for individualis m and ripe brains.
The skull farmers do their rain dance and pray the machine falls to sleep.
She holds me close and whispers wet, there are cannibals among us.
Mad in love with dry dead boys in the backs of abandoned cars.
Smoking the bones of children, plotting the murder of love.
When the kite string pops is the best heavy metal i have ever heard!!!!
acid bath will forever be the greatest. I apologize THE F**KING GREATEST METAL/ROCK BAND that most never got the chance to hear i was eased into them listening to scream of the butterflies beautifully spun dark sick and twisted narrative @ 15, then i ventured out and it was what I imagine that first hit of crack cocaine or shot of heroin is like. . and paegan terrorism tactics was uncut dope, pure musical bliss. i still imagine how far their star would have risen, given a chance

Acid Bath is fuckn raw as a gang banged dry docked gay a**hole... and then some. Just awesome...pr i m a l .
OH and at anyone who thinks he has sold out or isnt as hardcore as he used to be? He grew up along with the rest of us. and is at least bringing us the music, meeting his fans, and drinking his Miller Lite
I saw Dax on Sunday, he doesnt live far from me. Hes so very sweet, and humble. He is absolutely amazing. He autographed my daughter's picture. I have loved his music since highschool, and to get to meet him in a small venue was a highlight of my musical life
I first heard Acid Bath in 1997 and fell in love. I've followed the guys ever since. Dax's music is mellower now but still dark. Sammy is still bad a** in Goatwhore. But I will always love Acid Bath. JEZEBEL is my favorite song!!

Greatest underground band ever
bigoz12345
I was on d.r.I. mailing list here in tennessee and got a preorder card and had it shipped to my house. Loved them from then on. Plus I got a rare single release with that preorder card. F**king awesome
Cheers relectic! Im a,local boy too.. these guys are the s**t. Totally dig the whole local sludge scenething.

black goat semen \m/,
i have found myself listening to these guys when nothing else in life makes any sence. They have a way of making me feel like everythings gna add back up to something more meaningfull than just the here and now. im from Shreveport,L A . and have been friends with the guys from corrosions for several years. I love to wash my minde in an ACID BATH. its the only thing that can get the sticky stupidity of life out.
dropped alot of good acid to this s**t
Ther was The Bath then there was everything else. Worship the Godmachine!! ! ! ! ! ! !
miahpg333

jmprocks80
Hell of a band. We were listening to them in Florida back in the mid-90's. Still my favorite hard rock band...
christian propaganda and dog sperm, gotta love the hidden tracks.....

Scream Of The Butterfly
Acid Bath was the s**t!, no other band like them since! I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED !
I can smell abortion on you, i can see through, i take the gun out of my mouth and point it at you!! Most underated band ever
I adore this band. I was definitely born before my time (having only been two when When The Kite String Pops was released). Saw Dax Riggs play at Spanish Moon in Baton Rouge, LA a while back and was very disappointed in his new sound. Not enough lyrics like Paegan Lovesong and Bleed Me An Ocean :(
it's even in their bio...
