Abducted By Sharks
Before starting Abducted By Sharks, Acosta created hundreds of songs under many monikers. It wasn't until after he graduated college he started using one name. Abducted By Sharks started as an electronic chiptune solo project but grew into a futuristic soundscape electronic dance band. The music was mostly created by synthetic means, occasionally his friend Nick Borden would write and record guitar parts for specific tracks.
After releasing five albums as a solo project Nick Borden joined the band.
They released one more full-length album. After the single Braindead was released, the band went on hiatus.
Acosta has written the soundtrack for several indie games most notably Black Annex and The Love Letter.
Acosta's most current musical endeavor is the Depressive Atmospheric Black Metal band Verminlord. The music and lyrics are composed and performed by Teo Acosta.
Due to the sometimes dark history of Black Metal, Acosta has publicly stated the band is anti-NSBM.
"While the lyrical content and guitar-work paint a dark vision of evil wizards, demonology, and vile knowledge. Vermin Lord is vehemently anti-NSBM/neo-nazi/white supremacy or any form of hate/discrimination."
