Acid Bath is a legendary sludge band from where else, New Orleans. They were active from '91 to '97, putting out two full lengths, only breaking up due to the death of their bass player, Andie Pitre, in a car crash. Hymns.. was the demo the group put out before their first release, When the Kite String Pops. It is essentially a demo of Kite String as all of the songs from Hymns.. would later be re-recorded(or re-mastered?) for that album.
