Acid Bath is a rather unique band. They fused downtuned distorted doom metal guitars and doomish vocals with hardcore vocals. Sometimes they have punk-like drum patterns but most of the times use slowed down mid-paced doom metal drum sequences. There is hardly a guitar solo but that is to be expected; they are more based on effective powerful chord structures. Since they are from Louisiana, they have picked up on the whole sludgy, angry intense sound that Down, Crowbar or Corrosion of Conformity. Dax Riggs delivers blues influenced vocals while Sammy Duet and Mike Sanchez deliver hardcore-ish lyrics. They put two records out for the Rotten label before bassist Audie Pitre was killed in a car accident by a drunk driver on January 23, 1997...

Let's talk about this band some more... what do you think the album title "When The Kite String Pops" means?

My theory is that it is related to heroin use/abuse. You know, when you're high on heroin, you're "high as a kite". So when the kite string pops, you lose all control over your addiction or over your life. Or you get even more high. What do you think?

I think it could be like you said.
When I read the name I started to think about something that lose it's own control. It could be some kind of freedom or when life isn't safe anymore.

Well, I think all Acid Bath songs deal with drugs in one ore other way... metaphorically, lyrically speaking, but also musically, you can feel the anguish, sickness and despair felt by an abuser of hard drugs.

I heard Dax ran away from his parents with a girlfriend to a different state, back when he was 13, and dropped a lot of acid in those days. That's pretty hardcore.

He seems to be doing alright now though, with his solo stuff and all that. Does anyone know if he's still an addict?

Listening to Pagean Terrorism Tactics last night. Awsome album. This might seem kind of irrealevent but, the bitch that showed me this band is un-fucking-worthy.

Such a great band. Usually I don't really run into people that have heard of them. "When the Kite String Pops" has been one of my favorite albums for a long long time! definitely a band whose career ended too early!

Yeah, WTKSP is a really awsome album. Better than Pagean Terrorism Tactics, that's for sure. I think it Noble of them though, to have decided to end after Petri Audy's death.

I once read in an interview that even if Audy hadn't died, they would've split up sooner or later anyway. Just take a look at what bands the members are in now, Dax Riggs with his Agents Of Oblivion/Deadboy & The Elephantman/Dax Riggs stuff, Sammy Duet with Goatwhore... they were bound to break up due to musical differences at some point if they'd have had the chance.

I also heard that there were some small tours AFTER the bassist's death but the thing ended because there was just too much drugs involved or something like that.

Yeah, they've always been crippled by that I believe,

Yeah, I guess it's just a bit of fanboyism to desire yet another amazing album,

I gave this band a listen last night for the first time in a long time and I couldn't help but thinking they were much more Stoner sounding then I remembered and much less Sludge. I realize what is on their myspace isn't a full representation, but they sounded much more Sabbathy than I had ever remembered. Regardless, very good nonetheless. I should really look into grabbing one of their albums.

Nah, Acid Bath is 100% sludgecore. Sludge and stoner bands all worship Black Sabbath, so you can't really represent a genre based on that one band.

I'm trying to get into these guys. Does anyone have a suggestion for their best album? I love the melvins and queens of the stone age; I wonder- are these guys similar in any way to either of those two bands? Thanks, and cheers!

P.s. I have however heard my buddy play a song in the record store he runs...sounded pretty cool. I wanna say it was off the album that has the clown on the cover because I asked who this was and he directed me to this album.

When The Kite String Pops! They aren't similar to Melvins or QOTSA.
