Acid Bath - When the Kite String Pops (1994)

   In every genres have to be a black sheep band, that doesn't followed strictly the basic features of the actual style, but still it had reasonable influence on it's development. Or from another view: there always have to be a band which is more genuine or experimenting than the others. In sludge metal that band was Acid Bath.
   Their music had more melodic parts and was more diverse than the other classical bands of the genre. In general it thad an aggressive impression and sympathized with the same lyrical concept based on violence and drug abuse, but the melodies, doom-like influences and occasionally romantic lyrics gave a gloomy, gothic touch to the main view. The same time they involved extreme elements that are more common to hear into death metal. Of course the sick, morbid and scandalous section was also not skipped, that's already shown by the self-portrait of John Wayne Gacy used up for album cover. So it was quite wide scale which Acid Bath pulled together for self-expression, and that high diversity made "When the Kite String Pops" an interesting classic.
