twin_obscenity Yeah, they been around a while. I remember finding them in my younger years on mIRC. Hell I bet some of them users are here now. I won’t waste my time explaining why.
These are some straight killer cuts for any stoner or spacer! Do yourself a service and tune in, smoke out or drop out. Either way it’s sure to please and you get a story to go with it!

David Yvinec I first discovered Acrimony in 1996 thanks to a compilation by Lee Dorian of Cathedral. I first owned The Acid Elephant EP, then I bought Tumuli Shroomaroom. Later, by chance, I found the album Hymns to the Stone in an used CD store. As I was listening to it before buying it, the shop owner jaw dropped. I knew I had found a gem! At the time, there was no internet so to find that kind of artists, you had to really look for it. One regret: Space Cat #7 is not included... Favorite track: Firedance (2019).

about

Chronicles of Wode is a 3CD box set from Burning World Records that brings together the bulk of the discography of Welsh heavy rockers Acrimony. It includes their two full-lengths, 1994’s Hymns to the Stone (discussed here) and 1997’s Tumuli Shroomaroom (discussed here), both with new artwork by Jimbob Isaac (also of Taint and Hark)”, as well as a third disc of off-album tracks, some of which were previously collected on 2007’s Bong On – Live Long! compilation and some which were not, including a yet-unheard Doom cover, and so on. Bringing these offerings together is something noteworthy in itself — the band’s influence over UK heavy rock was and is formidable, and they were genuinely ahead of their time when it came to using repetition and jammy vibes as a means to hone a heavy psychedelic feel while retaining a metallic energy beneath — but crucially, Chronicles of Wode gives all of these Acrimony tracks a much-needed remastering, and they’ve never sounded so vibrant. That’s particularly true of Tumuli Shroomaroom, but while Hymns to the Stone is more dated in terms of its basic production, that’s more of a fact of how the record was originally made, and it seems no less integral to preserve that than it does to give Acrimony‘s catalog the detailing it has long since earned.
