My favorite parts of Acid Bath songs are when they start playing something that's more thrashy or deathy in nature, rather than doing slow sludge-doom stuff. If they were a death/thrash band, that would be so cool.

The best Acid Bath parts are when they aren't playing metal at all.

I consider Acid Bath jazz because I hate associating them with metal

I think the sludge label is all kinds of fucked up. People call Acid Bath sludge, they call early Neurosis and Isis sludge, and to me they really don't sound anything alike.

Sludge is basically Doom Metal + Hardcore, and I think that describes Acid Bath, Neurosis, and Isis to a pretty good degree. Obviously all three of those bands don't sound alike and really add a lot of outside elements, but their core is sludge. Especially Isis' and Neurosis' early albums. Isis' Mosquito Control EP has tons of really bluesy/southern sounding doom riffs on it.

If I had to label them, Acid Bath is stoner metal (but come on, they mix so many subgenres that it's impossible to classify them). Isis is definitely post metal, and I always have a difficult time classifying Neurosis too, but I guess I'd call them post metal if I had to put a label on it.

Like I said, going off their early career, it's very easy to describe Isis and Neurosis as sludge.

I don't even listen to Isis and I've always known they were sludge, DERP.

"Hive Destruction" is the only song I ever got familiar with years ago.

Isis is like the epitomy of Sludge. Acid Bath is sludge too just more on the Hardcore side of things.

I really like categorizing things. I do it with everything, not just music.

Too hard to classify things now. Almost every metal band has some hardcore punk influence of some kind just like almost every hardcore punk band has some metal influence of some kind. EHG, Noothgrush, and Dystopia are for sure sludge bands. But those are all pretty heavy on the hxc side of sludge.

I think I was confused initially because I got into Isis and Neurosis late, along with The Ocean and some other sludge/post-metal bands. And on their later albums the "post" aspect is kinda more evident than the hardcore. Which makes them sound nothing like Acid Bath, yet people still refer to them as sludge regardless of which album they're talking about.
