Metal Insider’s Top 5: 20th anniversary albums we’d like to hear live

4) Acid Bath, When the Kite String Pops


This is another one that won’t be happening. New Orleans was pretty much the birthplace of sludge metal, and no band, with possibly the exception of Eyehategod, summed up the sound of the Sabbath meets hardcore  sound sludge more than Acid Bath. The band’s first full-length album is a blueprint for many bands that followed, including Goatwhore, whose guitarist Sammy Duet started in Acid Bath. While the  band broke up in 1997 after bassist Audie Pitre was killed by a drunk driver, drummer Jimmy Kyle allegedly hit up Corey Taylor asking if he’d be interested in singing for a reunited band.

Chances it’ll happen: No Audie = no Acid Bath. Besides, Goatwhore is doing fine, and vocalist Dax Riggs has his own, much less heavy, career.
