BAD ACID TRIP

"Lynch the Weirdo" (Sony; 2004)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Now that I have finished listening to Bad Acid Trip's "Lynch the Weirdo" all I can do is shake my head and wonder just the hell I have experienced. I could not believe the hardcore metal music that was coming out of my CD player at a blistering and unrelenting place. The music was played so incredibly fast I had to consult the liner notes just to get a vague idea of what the band was singing. 

Beneath the band's name on the "Lynch the Weirdo" CD cover are the words "energetic bursts of psychopathic fury." That statement pretty much sums up what this CD is all about. Dark, apocalyptic, twisted, ghoulish and sinister are just a few words to describe the tunes of this totally original twist on metal music. 

This CD reminds me of Frank Zappa and the Mothers Of Invention, Primus, a Stephen King novel, and a bit of raw nuclear energy all mixed together to make a very unique sound. I found Bad Acid Trip very entertaining throughout, although it was a bit hard to follow without the lyrics sitting right in front of me.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
