ACxDC (also known as Antichrist Demoncore) is an American hardcore punk band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 2003. The band has gone through multiple line-up changes and its current line-up consists of vocalist Sergio Amalfitano, guitarists Brian Amalfitano and Aldo Felix, bassist Jeff Aldape and Jorge Luis Herrera. The band's musical style has been mainly labeled as powerviolence, as well as grindcore and hardcore punk with influences from d-beat, crust punk and death metal. The band's aesthetic has been described as "a strange blend of veganism, straight-edge and Satanism."
The band was formed in 2003 when the members were still in high school. Vocalist Sergio Amalfitano was invited to play in the band by an early guitarist, whom according to Amalfitano planned to form "a Spazz-type band, where the lyrics talk about Ninja Turtles and stuff." The band has generated controversy with some of their recordings, including He Had It Comin' EP (2005), which features a Vietnamese cop shooting a crucified Christ on cover. After entering a hiatus, original members Amalfitano and Jeff Aldape reformed ACxDC with a new line-up in 2010. The new line-up included Amalfitano's twin brother Brian Amalfitano on guitar.
The band released its full-length debut album, Antichrist Demoncore in 2014. The album was produced by Taylor Young, who is known for his work for Nails and Twitching Tongues, and mastered by From Ashes Rise and The Cooters member Brad Boatright.
In June 2015, the band announced that it recorded 14 songs for new records and splits.
