Following a prolific run of releases and live appearances from 1981 through early 1984, Belgium’s female-fronted hellchild of Venom and Motorhead seemed to have gone quiet, assumed by many never to be seen again. That is, until 1985 when the engines began to rumble once more as original members Kate, Dizzy Lizzy, Anvill, T-Bone and Demon returned to deliverEngine Beast, a slightly more polished yet no less punishing slab of driving speed-metal torment.
Formed circa 1980 in the Belgian town of Brugge,ACIDwere among the ﬁrst European bands to emerge in the wake of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal that spawned artists such as Iron Maiden, Saxon and Diamond Head. Driven by the pile-driver double-bass drums of Anvill and fronted by the charismatic, leather-loving singer/dominatrix Kate de Lombaerd, the quintet soon evolved from a gritty heavy metal band into the ﬁrst ever female-fronted speed metal unit, heavily inspired by the likes of Motorhead, Tank, Venom and Raven.
