Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats


Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats are an English psychedelic doom metal band heavily influenced by the 1960’s emerging heavy metal scene. They have released three albums to date and are currently still playing and touring. Having a sound somewhat similar to Black Sabbath, they are a call back to the days when Doom was at its peak. However they still manage to have a unique and recognisable sound.

Blood Lust (2012) was their real breakthrough album and has a fantastic fuzzy doom metal feel with psychedelic overtones. With the success of the album, the band proceeded to release Mind Control (2013) which retained the classic doom feel but with a much cleaner and well defined sound.

Why we love them:

Uncle Acid & the deadbeats are a true diamond in the rough. They are instantly recognisable with their fresh yet familiar take on the doom metal genre. The vocals are strangely haunting and fit perfectly with the harrowing riffs of psychedelic doom metal that they play.

They might be more doom metal but they have strong stoner rock vibes with similarities to Queens of the Stone Age. They are a band we find ourselves constantly going back to on a regular basis as we just can’t get enough of them. We highly recommend you give them a listen, even if you’re not the biggest fan of doom metal.
