History

Acid Reign got its start when a member's parents put up the money for the band to record a demo. The band had a sense of humour and its members went on to many other bands. The Brits specialized in thrash at the same time as the style was rising in the UK with bands like Toranaga and Xentrix. The band's first release was the Moshkin Stein EP - a parody of Anthrax presumably.

2014 brought a band compilation, called The Apple Core Archives, courtesy of Candlelight. A version of Acid Reign reformed in 2015 with only original member Howard "H" Smith. The man had been a stand-up comedian. Decapitated, Raging Speedhorn, Acid Reign and others were to take to the stage of the O2 Academy in Birmingham as part of HRH Metal: Metal Meltdown On February 16th 2019. Acid Reign released its first full-length album in some thirty years in September 2019. The Age Of Entitlement was out through Dissonance Productions in September.
