Is this record worth a spin? Should I buy it? Will it add to or detract
from my credibility? Should I care?
I wish someone could break it down for me.

Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats- Vol. 1

Fuzzy, sludgy, distorted, and druggy debut release from Cambridgeshire, England trio. It's full of chunky riffage a la Black Sabbath, but with a decidedly more up-tempo, hook-driven bent that includes some rewarding free-form jams. Does a good job of capturing the haunted gloom of a British manse in the woods feel. There is definitely more on this record than you'd find from your typical doom/sludge act.

Buy this record to accompany the grilled cheese sandwich you've just taken down to the basement where a Call Of Duty game awaits while Faces Of Death plays on the back wall projector.

  1. killer album if you can find it and afford it. limited to less than 100 copies, selling up to a few grand for a copy. this band is touring with black sabbath this fall and winter. their newest album, mind control is available now as is their 2nd , blood lust, both on metal blade records. http://www.metalblade.com/uncleacid/
