Sound of Liberation proudly presents:



“What do you do at this point in your career, when you’ve been around

for so long?”

That’s Lori S. from San Francisco’s Acid King. These days she’s asking the

big questions. The storied guitarist and frontwoman has been building

her electric empire, riff-by-riff, for nearly 30 years. Though Acid King’s

lineup may change, Lori remains the driving force and master cylinder.

Adopting the nickname of notorious teenage slayer Ricky Kasso, Acid

King came screaming out of San Francisco in 1993 with a sound that

fused heavy ’70s proto-metal with the kind of bleary, slow- rolling dirge

power being harnessed by their contemporaries in Sleep and Electric


The band’s 1993 debut 10” was followed two years later by their first

full-length album

Zoroaster (Sympathy For The Record Industry), which

set the stage for a trio of crucial releases on Frank Kozik’s famed Man’s

Ruin label, which included the EP

Down with the Crown & Free. But it

would be Acid King’s acclaimed 1999 album

Busse Woods that solidified

their reputation amongst a generation of riff worshipers, weed heads

and heavy rock enthusiasts. Two decades of hard touring and sporadic

recording ensued.

The band released

III in 2005 on Small Stone records and—after parting

ways with the musicians who played on 2015’s

Middle Of Nowhere,

Center of Everywhere—Lori formed a touring lineup that concluded with


Busse Woods 20 th Anniversary tour in 2019. Lori wasted no time

pondering her next move. The sweeping lockdowns that attended the

great plague of 2020-2022 provided the opportunity to collaborate with

Black Cobra guitarist/vocalist Jason Landrian.

“Once we got together and started writing, it was clear that it was much

more than an obscure, avant-garde instrumental thing we originally had

in mind. These were really good songs we were proud of. It became an

Acid King record.” The result is

Beyond Vision, and it’s unlike anything

Acid King has done before.

The undulating, lysergic pulse that underscores

Beyond Vision marks the

dawn of a new era for a band that previously relied almost exclusively on

thundering riffage. Don’t get it twisted, though: There are blistering

guitars aplenty.

Beyond Vision is simply Acid King in widescreen

technicolor and interstellar cinemascope.

“The songs really have no beginning or ending—they all just flow into

each other. It’s meant to be listened to as one piece. The whole point

was to have the listener feel like they’re on a journey. If you put

headphones on, it’ll take you to whatever places you’d like to go to.”

It's that kind of serendipity that permeates

Beyond Vision. What began

as an experiment became the path to a silver future.
