Pinkish Black - Self Titled LP

The new self-titled album by Pinkish Black is available on their Bandcamp. The is deathrock, or as Cvlt Nation puts it alternately gothic sludge and ethereal heavy psychedelia. So yes, this is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike metal. The sludgy riffing of the bass does keep it pretty heavy, amazingly it's entirely performed on the keyboard!

The atmosphere is certainly dark and evil, with the ethereal, droning vocals (and the almost blackened chanting on Tastes Like Blood), floating synths lines and the weird theremin sounds. Read the review from Valley of Steel and check it out.

  1. It's like an evil, creepy version of Interpol. And I like it.

    1. Evil and creepy, dark and trippy. It sure covers a lot of ground.
