Pink Skull have released on some of the US' most cutting-edge labels, including Throne Of Blood and Rvng Int'l, and this latest LP on Metal Postcard is both daring and inherently different. It may be a cliche to say so, but Pink Skull's devious soundscapes are truly bizarre in the best sense of the word. Conceptualising the release around a mixed pool of flavours, the artist manages to convey an organic feeling, both in sound and texture. "Vanilla", for example, is dense and fluttering, whereas "Orange" is more rigid in structure and sounds like the soundtrack to one of the Alien films. In a sense, this feels like musical synaesthesia, where Pink Skull translates the tastes of the world into tones and melodies. Utterly compelling and warmly recommended...
