Acid Bath

Acid Bath's fusion of hardcore (vocals and speed bursts) and doom (a raw, St. Vitus-style guitar sound) has since become synonymous with the NOLA brand of metal -- sludgy, angry, and intense. More diverse than others in this field, both albums are recommended, with the first album being somewhat more varied in its approach, and the second album being a bit heavier and more focused.

Following bassist Audie Pitre's death in 1997, the band went through a period of inactivity and reflection before deciding to call it quits. Dax Riggs and Mike Sanchez formed Agents Of Oblivion soon afterward, and recorded one album before disbanding, and Riggs later formed Deadboy And The Elephantmen. Sammy Duet joined Crowbar as well as continuing in the black metal band Goatwhore.
