Acid Bath: When the Kite String Pops
As with the previous Acid Bath review, let me add this precursor:
Let me start this review by saying how utterly disgusted I am with myself for not hearing
anything from this band until 3+ weeks ago; but now that I've gotten a healthy dosage of
Acid Bath into my veins and feeling its blasphemous ways take hold of my subconscious......
let's start this review........
Acid Bath is as follows:
- Dax Riggs: songwriter, vocals and lyrics
- Audie Pitre (RIP -- 1997/01/23): bass, backing vocals
- Jimmy Kyle: drums
- Mike Sanchez: guitar
- Sammy Pierre Duet: guitar, backing vocals
- Tommy Viator: keyboards
When the Kite String Pops track listing -- circa '94:
- The Blue

- Dope Fiend
- Toubabo Kooml
- God Machine
- The Morticians Flame
- What Color is Death
- The Bones of Baby Dolls

Notice anything about the album cover? That's right, it's a self portrait from John Wayne Gacy.
I just can't even begin to do this band justice by trying to describe their music to you....... it's undescribable...it's consuming...it's pure angst in its raw form! The best way to experience this
album...in my humble opinion...is while peaking during a 'magic mushroom' trip.
