Additional notes
Although recently it has been claimed that Acrophet were influenced by the so-called "Bay Area sound", in fact the group were heavily into hardcore and traditional metal and created their own sound that had an influence on 90s bands. The first release was widely acclaimed, which was made more interesting by the group's average age of 17. Baumann's shouty, rap-like vocals added a little melodic edge on the second release, which saw a less raw, more polished production, again by Eric Greif. The twin guitars of Todd Saike and Dave Pelino were bolstered by the quick feet of drummer Jason Mooney. The group toured nationally with hometown friends Realm, and was one of the first foreign underground metal acts to play Mexico in the late 80s. Saike quit after the second release, and although the group wrote material for a third release, they broke up before it saw the light of day (www.metal-archives.com)
