Album: Acido Demo '86
Style: Heavy Metal
country/location: Alessandria, Piedmont, Italy
I stumbled across this quaint little Italian heavy metal band about a year ago and recently rediscovered in my massive music library (random play is a wonderful thing haha). I was like "hey let's post this!"
Acido is a fairly unknown 5 piece band from the mid to late 1980s. Released a couple demos in their lifetime, but unfortunately didn't go much further than that. A shame really for they had talent and an excellent sense of melody and song composition, though it's hard to know how their lyrics are as they are in Italian (which is pretty nifty! If any of my followers know Italian care to translate!). Lots of classic galloping riffs and epic solos here for heavy metal fans to feast on. The vocalist has a mid ranged raspy/gruff style that works really well. Old school metal fans will easily hear that they were fans of Dark Quarterer, as they definitely took that awesome sense of epic build and riffs that grow on each other. Again, it's too bad they didn't get a chance to at least record a full length, I could totally see that album being a favorite among metalheads. Oh well, this demo will definitely please folk!
