knobles pinkish black are the best thing to come out of fort worth. ever. keyboards heavier than 3 tons of deep purple. their joy division cover is spot-on Favorite track: New Dawn Fades (Bonus Track).
Errol thumbnail
Errol Pinkish Black creates truly great art. I love every track on this record. I describe them as being a huge wall of melody, noise, and melancholy. Great stuff! Favorite track: Bottom of the Morning.

Samie Bufalino death rock from outer space Favorite track: Bottom of the Morning.

Bardo Morales Doom-ish gothic that is melodic, experimental, mature, immersive, retro and unique. With a modern Progressive and Psychedelic soul, these guys' music is a seriously elegant listen that tastes of dark fantasy. Favorite track: Burn My Body.

Eve McGivern I've heard this called "For people who don't like metal." Gothic Psych Metal? A lovely dark mash of sounds to CRANK out of a pair of good speakers. Trigger warning though, not a happy piece of work (and with good reason based on the background of the band leading up to this disc). I'd love to see these guys on a bill with Killing Joke, man, THAT would be something. Favorite track: Special Dark.

Bill McLaughlin III Love the songs, loved seeing them live. Great lyrics and sound...

Was super bummed (sorry, "first world problem" coming up...) when the vinyl showed up and was entirely brown with one little speck --literally, the size of a pencil eraser -- of yellow on the edge.

Oh well, that aside...glad I found out about these guys completely at random. Favorite track: Burn My Body.

Bottom of the Morning is Texas duo PINKISH BLACK's third album and Relapse debut. From the gothic, horror-movie-esque organ intro of opener “Brown Rainbow” to the wistful, fuzzed-out conclusion of final track “The Master Is Away,” Bottom of the Morning is simultaneously dark and catchy, dissonant and melodic, smothering audiences with heavy layers of distorted, repressive gloom that still end up as earworms despite their pessimism. It’s like if Mike Patton’s subconscious got into a knife fight with Goblin. Recorded at Echo Lab Studios in Argyle, TX by Matthew Barnhart and mastered by James Plotkin (Khanate, Zombi), Bottom of the Morning stands to see PINKISH BLACK affirm themselves as one of the most interesting and far-thinking duos currently active in the heavy music scene.
