Riot Radio – Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats – Waiting for Blood

A blacker sabbath.

Doom Metal, Death Rock, whatever you want to call it, it’s a great time to be a fan of the subgenre, especially for those with a more mind-bendingly psychedelic bent. Seemingly right on time, Cambridge UK genre stalwarts Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats are back on the scene with “The Night Creeper. First single Waiting for Blood hits all the checkboxes of awesome (with a name like Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats it has to be good!), including infectiously heavy riffs, blistering solos, a meaty low end, and the band’s usual themes of pervasive dread and menace. And it’s also catchy as hell!


Uncle Acid’s “The Night Creeper” is out September 4th on Rise Above Records, and they’ll be at Union Transfer on 9/13 with Ruby the Hatchet and Ecstatic Vision.
