The Acacia Strain is an American metal band that formed in Massachusetts in 2001. Though the group tries to eschew genre tags by simply describing itself as "heavy," its music has many ties to the metal sub-genre of death core--a pummeling rhythm section full of double bass drumming, three electric guitars pounding out death metal riffs and lyrical themes that deride modern society and America's over-fascination with technology. The Acacia Strain dropped its debut album ...And Life Is Very Long, in 2002 and has since found crossover success with the punk rock crowd, particularly after appearing on the 2011 lineup of the Vans Warped Tour.
