Pinkly Smooth incorporate frantically-delivered lyrics about blood, resurrection and funerals into songs which take inspiration from sources such as circus music, Queen, and a bevy of classic metal bands. The result is a strange but compelling mixture of Danny Elfman-esque piano lines, screaming guitar lines and vocal acrobatics. Deranged, fun, progressive and slightly disturbing.
Pinkly Smooth have released one album, 2002’s “Unfortunate Snort”. No further releases have been advertised, although it is unsure how much of an ongoing project the band is.
On December 28, 2009, James Owen Sullivan, other wise known as The Rev, passed away. he is missed and is in everyone’s heart. Rest(and rock) in peace.|
