There isn't much metal I can write about Acrid, but with listed influences of Burzum and Ulver, I decided to give "Caveman" a short review.
"Caveman" is the first CD of instrumental music from the altered state of keyboardist Eoin Callery from the Irish band Ego Sum Papa. The music is atmospheric and ethereal; quite like the soundtrack to a 1970's space film. The song titles really told me nothing of what to expect.
Acrid's highly improvised music is subdued and listenable, but for me it's mostly in a background sense. I suppose all metalheads can give their ears a rest now and then. Maybe Danzig and that other dude that dropped him could've hung out with some tea and cookies or James Hetfield could've relaxed to some of this instead of beating up on Lars.
Bottom Line: Acrid is relaxing, instrumental music.
