Acid King is a stoner metal band from San Francisco, California.
Acid King was formed in 1993 by frontwoman Lori S, who was soon joined by drummer Joey Osbourne and bassist Peter Lucas. The band's name was inspired by the book Say You Love Satan. It is based on the character of Ricky Kasso (nicknamed 'The Acid King') who committed a satanic murder in Northport, New York in 1984. The band itself has also been featured in two books: The Encyclopedia of Heavy Metal and Rockdetector's A to Z of Doom, Gothic & Stoner Metal, both published in 2003.
The band has developed and maintained a distinct sound throughout its career. This can be characterised by low-tuned and heavily distorted guitar riffing, which is played at a slow tempo. It is primarily influenced by early heavy metal (particularly Black Sabbath), doom metal, and psychedelic rock.
Since its formation, Acid King have recorded three studio albums and three EPs with a series of bassists.
