Our music sounds exactly like five people from the Bayou should sound. Five different directions that just so happen to come together. Listening to Blondie, David Bowie, Moody Blue, Dead Can Dance, Black Sabbath, Devo, and Thrill Kill Cult influences that make a big pile of chaos that seems to work.
[Paegan Terrorism Tactics] has taken us from the close, mysterious, dark Bayou life to the open oceans of freedom and darkness that lies below.Mike Sanchez / Acid Bath interview, Chronicles of Chaos, 1997
The cover artwork is "For He is Raised", painted by Jack Kevorkian.
The madness, chaos and romance of Ramirez and Gacy was a tasteful ingredient to throw into our American Pie made with Ziare's worst diose. Dr. Jack Kevorkian featured on PTT is part of what's going on inside. There are those who praise him for giving them their freedom. Then there are those who are on the outside wanting your freedom to control. The artwork itself is how things are viewed. As a kid, faster was fun, out of school, lots of candy, family and God. Everybody digs out their puppet Jesus and pretends that they know just what's going on around them. While watching how cute the little girls and boys are when they bend over to get the egg we hatched for them.
Acid Bath has the type of music that sucks you deeper and deeper into its juices the more you listen. Narrow-minded people may say that they're just trying to be too cool. The artwork gets good and bad attention. But once you open a couple of closed doors you'll soon discover there's a lot more to this package than artwork and sounds. Acid Bath is the largest band on the underground. Very little promotion has limited any real problems with the artwork.Mike Sanchez / Acid Bath interview, Chronicles of Chaos, 1997
