Angels on Acid was founded by Michael Banks in early 2003, heavily influenced by genres including EBM, industrial, metal, synthpop, psychedelic, and even old school goa. It was this diversity of styles which helped formulate the band's unique flavor of dark electronica.

Michael began working with metal guitarist The Omen in the Fall of 2005, and releasing the Dominate E.P. in the Spring of 2006. In June of 2007, Angels on Acid successfully released their first full-length album Eyes Behind The Curtain and began distribution with DSBP Records shortly thereafter. After achieving successful international sales, Angels On Acid signed with DSBP in December 2007, officially re-releasing Eyes Behind the Curtain.

The music of Angels On Acid has been featured on various compilations, including Endzeit Bunkertracks III and IV (produced by Alfa Matrix), and in sci-fi film soundtracks such as Defcon 2012 alongside fellow industrial acts Die Krupps, State of the Union, and FGFC820. They have also performed with influential bands including Combichrist, Imperative Reaction, Assemblage 23, Nachtmahr, Mindless Faith, De/Vision, Dismantled, JulienK, Modulate, Genitorturers, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult, Slick Idiot, and Life Cried.

The 2nd full-length album, Blood, Sweat, And Tears, was released on August 13th 2010. The new album shows the maturity of their signature sound, painting an introspective and grim picture of humanity's future. It includes ten original tracks along with remixes from artists Wynardtage and Carphax Files (courtesy of COP International), Psyborg Corp (courtesy of Noitekk), Erektor, and Sonik Foundry.
