I don’t know how you feel about The Acacia Strain but I dig them. If you’re a fan of absurdly hard riffs and silly preorder packages, get in here.


Pit warriors, gather! The Acacia Strain are back with a new full-length for you to mosh all living things into oblivion. Let’s get right to it. Here’s the newest tune, titled “Cauterizer” from the new album Coma Witch. I dig the song though the video seems completely unnecessary.

 

This hits most of my sweet spots. It seems the band is going back to their absurdly heavy roots, eschewing the Meshuggah-worship of their previous album Death is the Only Mortal. There are FIFTEEN different preorder packages you can choose from. Some of the options include camo gym shorts, a ring that will never ever fit you, and super-caffinated Acacia Strain-branded coffee! Just take a look at this.!

 

Coma Witch is out October 15th on Rise Records. I’m stoked. If you’re not, it’s cool. Just yell at me below.

  • This riff is a good riff.

    • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

      here we go…how many releases back does this go from this new stuff? I admit I know nothing about these guys, but am open to learning.

      EDIT….wrote this comment before video ended to see album from 2013

      • This one was released a B-side collection about a year ago. The first album came out in 2002, I believe. “Wormwood” is my favorite record – came out in 2010 I think.

        • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

          will get it into queue today…paperwork heavy day means lots of music discovery for me.

        • Det. Flushin Bohl

          Wormwood is phenomenal. I’d also check out 3750, probably my second favorite. Check out Ramirez and Jonestown on Wormwood.

        • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

          ps moving this up an hour this morning great way to put dudes on their heels, if you know what I mean

          • Det. Flushin Bohl

            Fuck yea, was thinking that when I first saw this post this morning.

          • Negrodamus

            Yo, right on, plus @joethrashnkill:disqus we need to get the time stamps (coal) rolling!

          • Yep. Trying to juggle the site and my real job. Will get on that as soon as I can.

          • Negrodamus

            In case no one has mentioned it yet, you’re doing a bang up job here.

        • Howard Dean

          Wormwood… was an excellent Marduk album.

      • W.

        I dig the album Continent.

    • Cock of Steele

      Goddamnit I don’t like this band that much but, that is a tasty riff.

  • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

    This is one of those bands that I’ve passed over because of “insert genre-core” band name. Still 3/5 flushes. Saved 2 flushes by those camo shorts…..and slick integration of the pre-order now banner on the video.

    • Det. Flushin Bohl

      They don’t take themselves too serious and always are having a blast. Riffs are tight and they get some credibility redemption for deathcore as a whole. If you ever go to a show to see another band and they happen to be on the bill, definitely check them out.

      • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

        will do

    • Xan

      My feelings are similar. Every song is just boring and the death growls are terrible. 3/5 flushes is worthy of them.

  • Flushgod Apocalypse

    These guys have an awesome sense of humor and heavy-as-balls riffs. I’ve always enjoyed ’em.

  • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

    is the bassist in the story pic the same guy as in the video?

  • Det. Flushin Bohl

    Max Cavalera approves.

    I approve of The Acacia Strain live. Good God, what wholesome pit mayhem and fun!

    • W.

      The first time I saw them live was a BYOB show. The pit was nutz!

      • Det. Flushin Bohl

        I first saw them with Every Time I Die, that night the pit was one of the craziest I’ve ever been in. One of the most active crowds I’ve ever been in.

  • Randall Thor

    I hate this music, but I love fun pre-order packages

    • If nothing else, I hope we can all come together in our love of silly preorders. Who the hell is going to sleep on an Acacia Strain pillow case?!

      • Guppusmaximus

        No silly, you don’t actually use it. Just like their shirts, you frame it! :>)

      • Det. Flushin Bohl

        “Happy” pillow case.

    • Mr. Bojangles

      If nothing else, you can like them since they hate emmure.

  • Mr. Bojangles

    I love the Acacia Strain. They are like an actual good Emmure. They had that style way before anyone else. I’ve seen them live, and they’re from Boston.

    In fact, they have a few songs that are directed right at Emmure for stealing their style. Anyone who hates Emmure I’m okay with.

    By the way, NOTHING FUCKING BEATS BALBOA TOWERS.

  • the camera does the headbanging for us!

  • W.

    I love coffee. I might have to preorder that.

    • Kinda want to review it for the site. The coffee, not the album.

      • Det. Flushin Bohl

        What about the Fleshgod Apocalypse pasta? Should accompany with the Trooper lager from Iron Maiden etc. Make an entire metal meal.

    • Negrodamus

      I also love coffee. We are brahs.

      • W.

        True dat. I would actually drink coffee out of one of those Dethklok skull mugs if I had one.

        • Negrodamus

          I would enjoy coffee from a variety of metal themed and non-metal mugs.

          • W.

            I just enjoy coffee. I used to drink that
            Coca-Cola BlāK stuff back when it was still around.

          • Negrodamus

            I was never on that particular game!

            I did get some of the Death Wish coffee for Christmas last year. First time I tried it I made it “normal” strength in my French press, nine scoops, and it was like taking amphetamines in a bad way I wished I hadn’t! I ended up laying down a while lol. Next time I only used six scoops.

          • W.

            Haha. When I have more income, I need to get a french press.

          • Negrodamus

            If you got a French press mini (it makes less than two cups of coffee per French press, use about… five scoops or suit it to your taste) I bet over the long run you would save on coffee!

          • W.

            Probably so. Right now, I’m using a Keurig, but I just fill those little personal k-cups with my own coffee rather than buying k-cups. They expensive.

          • Negrodamus

            I believe you are correct (they are expensive) but I have heard Keurigs at the bomb tho! I actually stop at Holiday gas station five days a week and buy a small cheap cup on the way to work each day, they have surprisingly decent coffee. I do the French press on the weekends or those rare evenings I need a cup.

          • W.

            The Keurig is nice if you only need to make 1 cup.

          • Howard Dean

            We have a Keurig at work, and I also bought one for the home front, so I’ve totally jumped feet first into the K-Hole. Lean, mean, caffeine machine! Byah!

          • Negrodamus

            My roommate makes cold press coffee in bulk with a Toddy. It’s pretty good, but I generally prefer a hot cup of coffee you know?

          • Kevin Nash and Friends

            I have a Keurig, but I don’t like it. I want to buy one of these because it’s a french press that’s in a coffee mug. It’s pretty cheap too.

            http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/eef2/?srp=3

          • Cock of Steele

            Got my Somewhere in time mug from the gift voucher back when I was in the Maiden fan club. I think this one my dad has is more metal though https://s3.amazonaws.com/assets.svpply.com/large/1970947.jpg?1402948276

          • Negrodamus

            Ha, that is pretty metal and pretty loljesus

      • TrickleDownTacoRiff

        I dont drink coffee. I DO coffee. O and Ice cream too…

        • Negrodamus

          TDTR are you down with green tea ice cream?

          • TrickleDownTacoRiff

            never heard of it but I’m willing to give it a try!!

          • green tea shampoo FTW

          • Negrodamus

            Tea Tree shampoo was pretty ill, too.

        • Misanthropic Anal Fissure

          In the vein?

          • TrickleDownTacoRiff

            orally

          • Misanthropic Anal Fissure

            Pussy. Only way to do coffee is either anally or in the vein.

          • TrickleDownTacoRiff

            damn i suck…

      • Misanthropic Anal Fissure

        I like my coffee like I like my women, filled with semen.

    • Kevin Nash and Friends

      I like coffee, but it has to have a ton of sugar and half and half in it. I also have a Planet Hollywood coffee mug from Lake Tahoe, even though I never went to the Planet Hollywood in Lake Tahoe. I bought the mug at a thrift shop because my nWo Wolfpac mug broke. I miss that mug.

    • Misanthropic Anal Fissure

      I drink way too much coffee.

  • guest

    my first intro to them was the Above/Below e.p. they did last year, and I was pleasantly surprised after the mostly negative comments I’ve read about them online. Will check this out

  • Buck Waste

    So this is where everybody’s been. I like it here better.

    • Welcome brah!

    • HAHAHA, yup. uh… a friend told me that the other place has become kind of a wasteland of trolls and guest accounts.
      welcome!

      • Negrodamus

        It’s cause everyone followed YOU here, McNulty!

      • Buck Waste

        Its pretty miserable dude.

      • The Black Dahlia Burger

        That hester kukk dude might seriously be the worst commenter the site has ever had

        • Misanthropic Anus

          He used to have some good trolling comments. Now they are just shit.

        • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

          hey man, sorry about the SS nu metal comment, i was just doing some trolling and didn’t want to break character there.

          • The Black Dahlia Burger

            Oh shit man no problem haha, but to be clear though you realize they aren’t nu metal right?

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            Yea, i know they aren’t i was just stirring the pot over there. So if you see what i write there it’s not necessarily what i think all the time. Although i legitimately don’t like korn, slipknot or machine head. Are you a big tim and eric fan ?

          • The Black Dahlia Burger

            Yeah I really like them, I think they’re doing great things for comedy in general

      • Max

        …and articles/comment sections about the mighty Epicardiectomy grillz vid that TovH covered a week ago. It was all I could do to jump in and point this out, but we’re supposed to refrain from spamming ’em now.

        • Figured it out! @joethrashnkill:disqus IS Sergeant D. post on TovH, wait a week, post on MS… double the ad revenue!

    • W.

      Hail Buck!

    • Det. Flushin Bohl

      Welcome to our humble Toilet!

    • Negrodamus

      Welcome to the Toilet, Buck!

    • Buck Waste

      Thanks for having me fellas!

  • Kevin Nash and Friends

    Poor Robin Williams. He died and this is the saddest I have been over a comedian’s death since George Carlin. Here’s a Robin Williams comedy special, because he would want to be remembered in this light.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdIRME3EpFY

    • Mother Shabubu III

      I had the weirdest night of my life the night Carlin died. It was my high school graduation all-nighter some schools do, and all my jokes received laughs. I don’t think I’ve ever been funnier. Then I got home and in the morning I found out Carlin had died during the night. I’ve always been kind of weirded out by that. I know it’s strange to say a comedian meant a lot to you, but he did.

      • Kevin Nash and Friends

        Carlin was a genius. He truly was a genius.

    • Cock of Steele

      Flubber was the first movie I ever saw.

      • Kevin Nash and Friends

        I haven’t watched that movie in years.

      • …and the last

    • when will comedians quit dying already? Patrice O’Neal, Chris Farley, Greg Giraldo, Phil Hartman, Mitch Hedberg, i could go on…

      • Howard Dean

        …when new comedians stop being born?

  • I’m a shameless TAS fanboy. I’ve seen them live quite a few times, and it’s always great. Can’t wait for this album, seems like a throwback to Continent, and if it’s anything like the Above/Below EP, I’m sold.

    • Quarter Ounce Harrell

      is it bad that i still hold wormwood as there crowning gem? that shit sound like the end of the world to me.

      • Justin von Grav

        not at all wormwood is as good as it gets

  • Is there such a thing as too much mosh? I think so and that is what plagues this entire genre. Guess it’s a guilty pleasure for many.

  • Gorgasm

    Saw these guys open up for The Red Chord in Abq…fucking sick show.
    Super big fan of “The Dead Walk” which is their second album after “3750”, i think.

    Common misconception about The Acacia Strain, Many people think they’re from Boston, but they’re actually from Chicopee, MA

    • Det. Flushin Bohl

      The Red Chord <3

  • Sponge Of Mystery

    lol i was reading the comments while listening to the uberly heavy song and then the song ended and all the sudden i hear WAAAKE UUUUUUUUUP sang in a gay fashion…lol Rise Records fail

  • Lacertilian

    I couldn’t tell from the little picture but does anyone know if it’s Paul Romano (Workhardened) doing the artwork again?
    He’s my ‘art-god’.
    I regularly worship at the massive Animosity ‘Animal’ blacklight poster I got in the album package deal, along with all his Mastodon, The Red Chord, A Life Once Lost & even Trivium art.
    So good on psychedelics.

    • Gorgasm

      Dude, I miss Animosity so much. These guys could throw the fuck down.

      Never got to see these kids live, but I think it’s pretty cool that Evan’s in The Faceless, who also know how to throw the fuck down.

      • Lacertilian

        Is Evan still with them? His latest solo album fucking rips!

        I also have been keeping up with Navene’s post-Animosity work, playing drums with Animals As Leaders for a bit and now he’s doing some interesting stuff with that drum kit + pad combo.
