In the first installment of brutal bands by Brandon K, I mentioned my favorite band, The Acacia Strain, fronted by the brilliant and only remaining original member, the heart and soul of the band, Vincent Bennett. They're my favorite metal band...not sure if I made that clear. THE ACACIA STRAIN...MY FAVORITE. I also featured bands called The Last 10 Seconds of Life and I Declare War. All brutal, devastating bands with some dope ass songs.
