Pink Mass are everything your family, teachers, religious leaders and sundry authority figures warned you about regarding the perils of punk music made gloriously, debauchedly manifest. Aesthetically, Pink Mass are a supremely fucked hybrid of the Mentors, GG Allin, Sleep Chamber, Genitorturers and Sadist. Clad in leather, spikes and a mélange of bondage gear, subtlety in intent and theme is not their forte. Sonically, Pink Mass' music is an unholy hybrid of grindcore, war metal and raw, raw punk; in other words, a white-noise battering ram. The whole leather-wrapped package is about extremity on all sensibilities and fronts. The Theatre of Cruelty is real. Not safe for the faint of heart or ears.
