Saw a update from their blog via Myspace that Acheron is done. No more recording or touring after this years fests they are scheduled to play. They were always hit and miss for me but 22 yrs is a dam good run.

Should of called it quits years ago. They've been washed up for at least 15 years. I heard one track of that last album and it sounded like Fear Factory or something and with lyrics so juvenile, they made Kerry King or Slipknot look profound.

"Rites of the Black Mass" is a damn classic though. I can never grow tired of that record and still worship it to this day. After that, it all went down hill. The fact their "farewell" tour will consist of just material from that record confirms it.

They were definitely at their best with "Rites of the black mass", however "Anti God, Anti Christ" was a close second.

I still hope someone will release their intros on CD only, or vinyl.

I like Lex Talionis... simple riffing that sounds like Obituary infused with the evil vibes of Morbid Angel or Immolation, all with really good lead work.

Acheron is a band that I would like much more if there lyrics were less audible. Disregarding that, most of their stuff (haven't heard the newest one) is pretty good, and Rites of the Black Mass was great. I'm surprised by the amount of distaste for Acheron here...

Shit, I thought these guys had broken up like 10 years ago. Gee, what a loss.

Yeah, me too. Their old stuff is classic (especially Satanic Victory, what a record!) and I thought their new album was much better than the last one. Hope I can catch one of these Rites of the Black Mass shows before they're done!
