Acid King- The Early Years
(Leafhound Records LHR-013)

From Aural Innovations #36 (May 2007)

Leafhound Records have just released the first two Acid King releases (debut 10” and Zoroaster) on this CD. These date back to 1994 and 1995 and have been out of print for some time now. The sound has been remastered (whatever that fucking means) by Billy Anderson (Men of Porn), who also did the original sessions. For those not familiar with Acid King, they are a three piece playing very heavy stoned doom rock. Lori S (ex- Melvins), lays down some heavy shit on the guitar (although rarely any solos) as well as all the vocals. The tracks all sound quite a lot as there is hardly any solos or any sort or interesting guitar to mix things up, just pure uninhibited tuned down guitar riffing stoner doom from hell. Plain and simple! Acid King III was better but this is where it all started….
