Joe T of MoonlightSpeed Press turned me on to this band when I saw him in Denver last weekend. Uncle Acid takes all the good things about Pentagram, Black Sabbath, seventies Grind House and exploitation films and stuffs it into a tasty, lysergic-tinged sack of modern-vintage metal doom.
I don’t know precisely what that means but it makes precise sense if you listen to their latest album (streaming for free on Amazon’s new Mp3 store). Unfortunately the damn vinyl is out of stock. I’m going to be calling around to see if I can locate a copy. Meanwhile, put this in your headspace and let it do its black magic.
