Acrassicauda is an Iraqi Heavy metal band formed in 2001. It is often credited as being the first heavy metal group to emerge from Iraq. The band formed and played concerts under the regime of Saddam Hussein. It became well known outside of the local Iraqi metal scene after Vice magazine did a profile of the band. It received even greater coverage when it was profiled in a feature-length documentary about the band and its troubles in Iraq called Heavy Metal in Baghdad.
