Middle Of Nowhere, Centre Of Everywhere (CD)
On their fourth outing, the three-piece maintains the corrosive concoction at the heart of their identity, while simultaneously progressing. "I really wanted to add more depth and layers to our signature sound," says Lori. "Everything still feels like riding a motorcycle on Quaaludes, but things have expanded. It was important that we didn't write the same record over and over again. This is a little moodier. It happened organically that way." Certain pillars uphold the underground. Their influence pervades throughout future generations, shaping the sound, style, and spirit of artists for years to come. Such can be said of ACID KING, bubbling up from San Francisco in 1993 through a fog of revved up riffs, thunderous drums, and hypnotic vocal howl. This unholy triumvirate of visionary, vocalist, and guitarist Lori S, drummer Joey Osbourne, and bassist Mark Lamb existed before terms like "stoner rock" and "doom metal" entered the musical lexicon. They unleashed three EPs and three full-length albums, starting with Z oroaster in 1995, the 1999 fulllength Busse Woods, and culminating on 2005's Acid King III. Their seismic chemistry transfixed audiences everywhere from high-profile festivals such as Hellfest and Roadburn to now iconic shows alongside peers such as Sleep and Mystick Krewe of Clearlight. As personal lives became busier, they focused on a handful of packed local shows and special appearances overseas during the next decade. Song ideas volleyed back in forth, but 2013 saw them hunker down and flesh out the vision for what would become their next offering. ACID KING returns to its throne with 2015's full-length Middle Of Nowhere Center Of Everywhere. ACID KING are doing things on their own terms, letting their personal ethos continue to drive the music..."We never played this music for popularity," Lori S. exclaims. "There are no rules. We do everything how we want to. Acid King has always been driven by that."
