Yep it's the band from the documentary Heavy Metal In Baghdad
. I'm pretty sure it's on Netflix instant watch if anyone hasn't seen it and has Netflix.
I hit up this show after the Primus show at Stubbs around the corner. I got there before Eagle Claw started and got a text from Razor_shark, so I met up with him and Natrlhi outside the venue and shot the shit for about a half an hour or so before they had to head out. I went back into Red 7 for Eagle Claw; who is a great local instrumental metal band. Acrassicauda came up next and gave us a solid slab of thrash on a Tuesday night. You can definitely hear the Metallica/Testament influence in their stuff and it even has a Death sound to it at times. You can also pick up on some Middle Eastern influence in the guitars and drums, but not to the extent of something like Melechesh. A good showing from these guys, they have a lot of potential so hopefully they can flesh it out into their own sound because they definitely have the talent to do so.
