Acid Bath formed from the members of two bands, Dark Karnival and Golgotha. The band formed in 1991 and were based out of Houma in Louisiana. Their demo, 'Hymns of the Neddle Freak' was released in 1993 and helped them land a record deal with Rotten Records. In 1994 they released their album 'When the Kite String Pops'. This was followed by their second LP 'Paegan Terrorism Tactics'.
The band however abruptly finished up on January 23rd 1997 when bass guitarist Audie Pitre was tragically killed (along with his parents) when a drunk driver killed them all in a car accident.
The band disbanded after Audie's death.
