Sunday Old School: Classic Acid Bath Performances
Back in the dark days of metal, the 90's, New Orleans' Acid Bath formed and began rising through the underground ranks with their unique mesh of death, thrash, groove, stoner/doom, and sludgy NOLA sound and themes that largely centered around death, drugs, and serial killers. The band did not last long enough for a full ascent, however, releasing just two albums and finally disbanding in 1997 when bassist Audie Pitre and his parents were killed by a drunk driver. Those two studio albums, "When the Kite String Pops" (1994) and "Paegan Terrorism Tactics" (1996), however, were then cemented as underground classics.
Members of Acid Bath went on to form numerous other bands including Agents of Oblivion, Vual, Ritual Killer, and most notably, Goatwhore.
Being an underground band, Acid Bath played mostly smaller clubs and never had an impressive light show. When they came to Baltimore (and I regrettably passed on seeing them for another show), they played some little hole in the wall that I'd never heard of before. So you can't expect too much of an impressive live video outside of the performance itself. Here's a video apparently shot in one such small joint, of their live performance of "Bleed Me An Ocean" in Omaha, with a bonus performance of "Scream of the Butterfly" after the jump.
