There are more than one artist with this name: 1) Acid Reign were a British thrash metal band formed in 1985. The group was active until 1991, when they disbanded. Acid Reign's line-up for the most of the time was Mark Ramsey (drums and keyboards), Adam Lehan (guitars), Mac (bass), Kev (guitars), and Höwärd Smïth (or H) (vocals). At one point, future Cathedral member Gary "Gaz" Jennings also played guitar with the band. After they disbanded, Kev moved on to join Lawnmower Deth, under the monicker "Baron Kev Von Thresh Meister Silo Stench Chisel Marbels". Acid Reign were a fairly typical thrash metal outfit. They were visibly influenced by bands such as Anthrax and Metallica. Lyrically, the group tackled a multitude of issues, ranging from the criticism of contemporary society on "Creative Restraint" and the anti-nuke message of "Joke Chain" to the b-movie science fiction of "Phantasm" and to downright silliness, as on the CD bonus track for their album Obnoxious, "This Is Serious". 2) Hailing from the dephs of the Los Angeles underground, Acid Reign is ranked amongst the elite. Proud veterans of the Project Blowed camp, MC's Gajah and Beond have been advancing their craft since their first cassette, Acid Trip...a journey to the..., dropped in 1997. After a brief hiatus and successful solo ventures, Acid Reign is back and set to release their new LP, Diversity, on Uncommon Records. Diversity has the two showcasing their ability to spit over any rhythm/musical style/genre but remain grounded in their Hip Hop roots. Expect the patented choppy unorthrodox sound of the Reign riddled with substance, as they brush on the human condition with relative subject matter. Diversity will feature some of LA's finest word smiths and rhyme slayers like Aceyalone, Abstract Rude, Myka Nine, Nga Fish and more backed by a wide range of solid production including EQ & Nasa, hold on to your wigs!! 3) Acid Reign is a new metal band based in Staffordshire, UK that has no connection with the other UK metal group.
