Wormwood [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Gregory Heaney
With a combination of sledgehammer breakdowns and brutal lyrical misanthropy, the Acacia Strain's fifth album, Wormwood, is a lesson in focused hostility. Seemingly unconcerned with dazzling the listener with lightning-fingered guitar wizardry or insane blastbeats, the Acacia Strain is like a speeding heavy metal freight train, an inelegant and unstoppable juggernaut fueled by memories of the unchecked aggression unleashed on the world by the likes of Sepultura and Pantera.

Seemingly unconcerned with dazzling the listener with lightning-fingered guitar wizardry or insane blastbeats, the Acacia Strain is like a speeding heavy metal freight train, an inelegant and unstoppable juggernaut fueled by memories of the unchecked aggression unleashed on the world by the likes of Sepultura and Pantera. Subtle is not a watchword here. Those looking for patient buildups and intricately structured harmonies to stroke their beards to will find themselves disappointed.
