Acrid - hard fucking core



ARTIST: Acrid
ALBUM: Eighty-Six 12" + split w/ Left For Dead
NATIONALITY: Burlington, ON, Canada
GENRE: hardcore punk, grind

I believe I have found one of the most pissed off, heavy, fast, and abrasive bands in all of hardcore punk. Grinding hardcore with a sludgy sting, these guys played with the likes of Assuck and Charles Bronson back in 1998. Five-piece, female bassist, groovy distorted as fuck guitars, and a vocalist (and back-up) with glass in his screaming throat. Canadians with an overflow of hate, they show plenty of metal influence and keep every song interesting with pounding riffs and solid song structure. It also seems that the drummer actively melds well into the sound of the rest of the band, not merely blast-beatting away.
