Acrida is a hard rock band from Manchester NH who recently released their album "Rebirth." They are fronted by a female vocalist who certainly has the pipes. The music borders onto heavy metal but never quite gets there. The tunes are very radio friendly and remind me of bands like Evanescence.
When I was kid I always wanted one of those rock tumbler things. My mom always said no. For some reason I really wanted to have some polished rocks. Acrida delivers VERY polished rock and I don't really need that tumbler anymore. Thanks Acrida for saving me some money and rocking.
