East Coast metalcore ensemble the Acacia Strain utilize a bone-crushing rhythm section, apocalyptic samples, and a unique triple-guitar assault to deliver their signature blend of hardcore, noise, and death and doom metal. After emerging in the early 2000s, the band found success in 2008 with their fourth full-length effort, ‘Continent,’ which soared to the top of Billboard’s U.S. Heatseekers chart. Subsequent efforts like ‘Death Is the Only Mortal’ (2012), ‘Coma Witch’ (2014), and the horror-themed semi-concept LP ‘It Comes in Waves’ (2019) continued to snap necks in the metal community with brutal efficacy.
