Despite only releasing two albums, Acid Bath gained a strong underground following owing to the unique, experimental nature of their music. Acid Bath are best known for blending extreme, grindcore-influenced sludge metal with a mixture of death growls and melancholic goth/grunge-style vocals and acoustic guitar passages, as well as the use of sampling and spoken word poetry.
"Every element of Acid Bath's two-decade-old debut is deep, devious and unsettling. From its eerie John Wayne Gacy cover art and its cold Spike Cassidy-production, to its cataclysmic rhythms and twisted scriptures, the records spews forth 70 of the densest, most maladjusted, sinister minutes of bluesy bayou bleakness ever composed." - Liz Ciavarella-Brenner, Decibel
