Two EP's Of ACID KING


Acid King is a great band from California, U.S.A. I saw them at Roadburn 2007 and they really blew my mind.


Acid King is a stoner metal band from San Francisco, California. It was formed in 1993 by frontwoman Lori S., drummer Joey Osbourne and bassist Peter Lucas. Acid King have since recorded three studio albums and three EPs with a series of bassists.
The band's name was inspired by the book Say You Love Satan. It is based on the character of Ricky Kasso (nicknamed 'The Acid King') who committed a satanically-motivated murder in Northport, New York during 1984. The band itself have also been featured in two books – The Encyclopedia of Heavy Metal and the A to Z of Doom, Gothic & Stoner Metal – both published in 2003.
Strongly influenced by traditional doom metal and psychedelic rock, the band have developed and maintained a distinct musical style throughout their career. This is characterised by slow-tempo, low-tuned and heavily distorted guitar riffing, complemented with "hypnotic" female vocals.
