I’ve never been that into The Acacia Strain. Too breakdowny for my personal tastes. But I have to say, I’m really digging their new album Wormwood; it’s got a good balance between technicality, songwriting, and yeah, breakdowns. It’s not as much of a mind-fuck / as creative as The Red Chord’s latest, but it’s good. Suarez is gonna review it sometime soon, so until then you’ll have to take my word for it. The ripping track “Jonestown” is streaming on their MySpace for those interested parties.

MS reader Matt Millen filmed an entire Acacia Strain set last year when they came through his hometown of Ottawa with Despised Icon, and he was kind enough to send us links to his handiwork; the video and audio quality are great, so all you TAS fans out there oughtta really enjoy this.

The first bit is below and the rest after the jump.
