Acaedia (pronouced uh-SEE-dee-uh) is an American Metalcore band from Miami, Florida, which mixes multiple elements from Djent, Death Metal, Metalcore, and Post-Hardcore, to provide a unique blend of melody and heaviness. Since forming in 2014, Acaedia has exploded on the scene with their viral cover of Despacito “aka Metalcito”, which received over 7 millions views on social media platforms. Since their viral release, they are not looking to slow down anytime soon! They have been nonstop releasing content from their current EP “Void” on their YouTube channel.
From the stage at Vans Warped to being featured by some of the most prominent media outlets in the world, the band has been delivering a unique brand of metal core, laced with powerful social messages.
The band’s name is a variation of the word “acedia”, describing a sense of apathy, or lack of concern with one’s position on moral issues.
