A True Look Into One Of Louisiana's Greatest Metal Bands

"When I saw this DVD at a music store on Carrolton, I nearly jumped out of my skin. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I bought it, went home, and invited some friends to come over and watch it. Much to our surprise, there's a show on there that we attended (at the Jungle Rock Hut in Gretna, LA), and those are my PA speakers on there that I used to lend to a local sound guy. Acid Bath was such an influential force in New Orleans metal, it is almost an honor to briefly see the top of my head in a crowd in their only video release. This DVD brought back so many fond memories of beer soaked nights, listening to Acid Bath pound the crowd into oblivion. This video captures all the sweaty grit and grime of this legendary group paying their dues in small clubs, and it shows how much they were loved by their fans. Every Acid Bath show was an experience, and I even had the opportunity to open for them a few times. I know it sounds like I'm hung up on my own personal experience with them, but watching this has got me reminiscing about paying cover charges, the filthy men's room at Zeppelin's, drinking with Sammy on the patio area of the Last Stop, the sad news of Audie's death, and so many other things of that era. Acid Bath were the heartbeat of the local music scene at that time, and not only does this DVD showcase the band's greatness, but it's also a bit of nostalgia. If you were here around that time, you know what I mean. When Marilyn Manson was in town recording Antichrist Superstar, they stumbled into the Last Stop, expecting everyone to bow at their greatness...but no one even paid them any mind. We had our own idols. Long live the legacy of Acid Bath."
Acid Bath: Double Live Bootleg Lives Up To It's Name!

"Acid Bath: Double Live Bootleg lives up to it's name. This DVD spans almost the entire length of Acid Bath's time on earth. The quality of the videos in this DVD are decent at best. I guess that is why it is called a bootleg... Each clip on this DVD shows how much passion Dax puts into his music. I feel this DVD is worth buying just to see Dax in action. Acid Bath: Double Live Bootleg also contains the only music video released by Acid Bath. This is a must buy for all Acid Bath fans!"
Essential Addition to Your Acid Bath Collection

"Newcomers to Acid Bath beware; if their style is not already entirely absorbed by you and endeared to you to the point where you own both albums, maybe a t-shirt or something, and know all the names of all the members of the band, etc... then this may not be for you YET. This is for hardcore fans of Acid Bath that can scream along every lyric of every song. Why? The quality of most of the videos on here range in terms of sound from poor to OK. Owning the music video of Toubabo Koomi is worth it alone though.
There are two full shows on here, a few practices, and the aforementioned infamous music video that without this DVD probably would have slipped through the cracks forever. There is also a few clips from various other shows. They are not displayed in perfect chronological order, but luckily the back of the DVD does tell you the date of every peeformance listed.
Watching the band in motion is a lot of fun, and if you are familiar with the songs enough that you don't care about the quality of the audio, this is a must have. Anyone who calls themself an Acid Bath fan should have this, anyway, at least for reasons based on the very principal of basic loyalty to the underground.
True Acid Bath fans, don't worry. You'll love it. Realistically, newcomers will not know what to make of it. I recomend a look at their cds, and when you're done with that, pick up a copy of this, and the new disc of all their demos that is being released in November."

"If you are like me and never got to see Acid Bath, then this DVD is a godsend. Live tracks spanning their career are featured. The quality varies from show to show, but if you love Acid Bath, this DVD is more than worth your money and time. It's a shame they were never in a position to achive the greatness they should have."
