Is it a coincidence? Or is it the next wave of metal? Either way, there’s no denying that the retro, psychedelic groove of ’60s-era doom metal is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Ghost is one exceptional band that’s been making waves for a few years now, so is The 69 Eyes (though they have an old-school country/rockabilly vibe), and now we have Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats.
Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats have just made their debut EP, Blood Lust, available for purchase and it’s totally addictive. And how could it not be, with tracks like “I’ll Cut You Down,” “Death’s Door,” “I’m Here to Kill You,” “Ritual Knife,” and “Withered Hand of Evil.”

About Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats:
Who are this mysterious bunch known as Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats? We are not able to shed much light on the identity of this drug-crazed coven of freaks but are addicted to their heavy, melodic, garage- sounds.
Until now, their releases have only been available via mail order and have sold out instantly, commanding extremely high prices on eBay, such is the demand.
Their music brings back the dark spirit of true rock and roll conjured up by this anonymous cult of horror worshiping fiends. Uncle Acid has come to kill!
