Lords Of Acid – “Pretty In Kink” Album Review

352364Praga Khan is back again, kids.  And this time it’s with a new band of deviants. 

After the hugely successful Sextreme tour with Combichrist, Christian Death, En Esch & Wiccid, Lords of Acid returns with Pretty In Kink… available now via Metropolis Records.

From Metropolis Records: “Thanks to extensive experimentation with drugs, Crowley-ian sex magic, and esoteric paths of self-deprivation and mutilation known only to himself, this orgiastic orchestrator created the LORDS OF ACID to further encapsulate the seductive messages and raw sex of his ever-evolving musical vision. 

Pretty In Kink contains 12 tracks ranging in degrees of depravity.  For the most part, long gone are the days of the thick, layered analog synths with the rave-like strikes.  Instead, Lords of Acid is predominantly interested herein with creating a collection of tongue-in cheek (or other locations) tracks designed basically for getting loaded and getting your freak on.

However, a track like “My Demons Are Inside” does indeed remind us a bit of “Rough Sex” and the days where we fell in love with Lords of Acid to begin with.  The lead single, “So Goddamn Good” as well as “What the Fuck!” both are musically somewhat minimal but are focused rhythmically with the male voice performing the raps. “Sex Cam Girl” brings the female vocal to the lead and musically is kind of akin to 80s/90s ebm/pop.  “Flow Juice” is probably the closest to the style of LOA’s Our Little Secret album and is a bit like the track “Pussy.”

Let’s face it.  Praga Khan is not interested in reinventing the wheel and he’s not doing that with Pretty In Kink.  But that’s not why we grew up listening to him either…..chemical enhancement or not.  Pretty In Kink is a solid slab containing 12 fresh tracks of depravity and just flat out fun.  There’s a definite place for this music and Praga’s got the monopoly, kids.750338
