Revolution A.D.

Revolution A.D is a free download CD that is offered by the band Acid FM. This band from Kannapolis, North Carolina, USA plays a combination of Psychedelic, Space, Stoner and Hard Rock.
Acid FM is according to their Facebook page influenced by bands and artists like: Monster Magnet, Hawkwind, Kyuss, Pink Floyd, Fu Manchu, King's X, Clutch, Black Sabbath, L7, Smashing Pumpkins, A Perfect Circle, Tool, Motörhead, The Cult, Soundgarden, Audioslave, King Crimson, Orange Goblin, Led Zeppelin, Syd Barrett, Queensryche, Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Megadeth, Love/Hate, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Blue Öyster Cult, Gunslinger, Babylon AD, Atomic Rooster, Circus Of Power, Killer Dwarfs and Fastway.
The album Revolution A.D. was released along with their retail CD Phase II. After Phase II was recorded there were many songs left. Those songs has resulted in the album Revolution A.D. The songs on this album are for the most part acoustic, but it is anyway a great album. Enjoy!

Acid FM was conceived by Sparky Simmons in early 2002, with the intent to write & record hard rock that was a blend of two genre's; Stoner Rock & Psychedelic Rock. Sparky began writing, recording & structuring music alone (the proverbial all-nighter's) until meeting up with Doc in late 2003. Sparky asked Doc if he was interested in this writing and recording project, to ultimately become a live, touring Hard Rock/Space Rock act. A long, tedious schedule was put into place, which has transpired into what we are today.
Throughout the life of Acid FM there have been two consistent members; Sparky Simmons & Doc Obergefell. We have had several drummers and musicians who worked with us for long periods of time, but no one has stood the test of time. Acid FM's first release "Electroviolent Paradox," we worked with Tony Hatfield & Mike Robinson (on one song). Tony is currently unavailable to perform or rehearse. We worked with Ben Shepherd & Ian Guthrie on drums, for the majority of the recording process on our upcoming release tentatively titled, "Phase II." We have also worked with Sicko Zero on drums & Adam Richardson on bongos, not to mention everyone else. In 2008 thru 2010 Acid FM consisted of Sparky Simmons Guitar, Vocals, Synths; Alan Sislby - Bass; Ugg - Guitar; & Matt Scheipers - Drums
Acid FM is a hybrid of Space Rock and Psychedelic rock, with other Non-Mainstream elements. Some call it "Experi-metal", Fuzz Rock, Desert Rock, Stoner Rock, and others call it "just good hard rock". Either way, Acid FM is everything you want and nothing that's out there. Our influences range from Monster Magnet & The Cult to Pink Floyd & Hawkwind. Acid FM's ideas come from various sources that range from movies to facts to art to space to you name it!. Acid FM is the best sonic-induced trip you will ever take!
