The Acacia Strain’s Coma Witch is a “Cauterizer”
As rumored, The Acacia Strain will release a new album, Coma Witch, on October 14 via (I still can’t believe they’re signed to) Rise Records. Although the title would indicate that it’s a concept album about the life of Ann Coulter — the world’s only coma sufferer who is still able to walk and talk — the band has yet to confirm this to be the case.
You can check out the first single, “Cauterizer,” via the below video. It pains me to say this, but having listened twice now… well… let’s just say that I don’t think it’s The Acacia Strain’s finest work. It’s by no means bad — it just doesn’t have that signature TAS moment that makes you wanna use someone’s neck for a trampoline, y’know? Hopefully the rest of the album will bring the mosh in a much moshier way. In the meantime, you can pre-order Coma Witch here.
