ACID KING picture
Acid King is a stoner doom band that was formed 1993 in San Francisco, California, USA.

Acid King's signature is distortion, tight guitar-bass riff attacks and a Marshall-stacked, bloated low rear end. Ampeg bass amps and Osbourne's Ludwig drum kit supplemented the heaviness accordingly. Heavy but spacey. Lori's searing guitar leads contrasted nicely with her nefarious vocal stylings. People appreciated something different and distinctive, enthusiastically supporting Acid King's opening slots for the likes of The Obsessed, Sleep and Hawkwind.
Thanks to Stooge, UMUR, Time Signature, Unitron for the updates

ACID KING Middle of Nowhere, Center of Everywhere

Nightfly
Acid King return with their fourth album, Middle Of Nowhere, Center Of Everywhere after a gap of ten years, their last being 2005’s III. The San Franciscan doomsters clearly adopt the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” approach as nothing much has changed with the bands spacey stoner/doom sound.

What you get is eight tracks including the Intro and Outro of slow bottom end heavy psych tinged doom. It’s all heavy stuff and frequently locks into trippy instrumental workouts. It can on the surface all seem a little samey but repeated plays reveal some subtle melodies over the sludgy bass from guitarist Lori S who throws in some simple droning solos too. She also takes care of the vocals and while not having a great range her stark tones suit the music well enough and give the band a distinctive and easily recognisable sound.

If you’re already a fan of the band then you’ll almost certainly enjoy this one too but anyone sitting on the fence is unlikely to be swayed one way or the other. I enjoy Acid King but am unlikely to have a marathon back to back session of their albums, one being enough to satisfy my craving for this sludgy doom.

Warthur
Acid King's basic sound involves sludgey, muddy baselines and guitar work from Peter Lucas and Lori S., with drummer Joey Osbourne (no relation to Ozzy!) kicking in mostly when they want to speed up and rock out a little. Over that Lori S. delivers snarling, defiant, punk-influenced vocals; the overall effect reminds me of Joan Jett at her angriest backed by Kyuss at their sludgiest. It's an interesting and original combination which gripped me at first (especially during the opener, "Evil Satan"), but it isn't quite varied enough to sustain my interest over the course of an entire album; by "Tank" I've usually had enough and go listen to something else. I'm glad I've got Zoroaster on my iPod because Acid King always raise a smile when they come on shuffle, but I just can't sit through the whole album in one go.
