BAD ACID TRIP - FOR THE WEIRD BY THE WEIRD 1999 / BAD ACID TRIP + MUNICIPAL WASTE SPLIT EP 2003

I am no doubt going to get shit from the tru-metal snobs, and maybe even from Shelby Cobras himself, for posting Bad Acid Trip's 1999 breakthrough album "For The Weird By The Weird." But I would be lying if I said that this album wasn't totally kicking my ass today. 11 years later this sucker just sounds so good.

Hailing from the suburban wasteland of North Hollywood, CA, this four piece was (is?) equal parts comedy crustcore and circus metal, but mostly BRUTAL GRIND and they were the ONLY good grind band that dared to play living rooms when I was growing up in The Valley. This is their first full length and for cred's sake I am also throwing in their awesome 2003 split ep with Municipal Waste.

Is this the band that was hyped by System of a Down? They opened for Slayer years ago when Lombardo first came back. I remember seeing them and I just didn't know what to make of them.

I'm not going to claim "false metal" cuz Bad Acid Trip rips. What I DO want to know is this: where did you find that picture of me?
