Formed circa 1980 in the Belgian town of Brugge, Acid were among the first European bands to emerge in the wake of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal that spawned artists such as Iron Maiden, Saxon and Diamond Head. Driven by the pile-driver double-bass drums of Anvill and fronted by the charismatic, leather-loving singer/dominatrix Kate de Lombaerd, the quintet soon evolved from a gritty heavy metal band into the first ever female-fronted speed metal unit, heavily inspired by the likes of Motorhead, Tank, Venom and Raven.

Deluxe packaging includes a 12” x 24” insert featuring photos hand-picked by the band, an interview, liner notes from Classic Rock/Metal Hammer writer Malcolm Dome, plus, for the first time ever – lyrics!
