Pineal is a London based three piece with the sonic leanings toward Tool, Slipknot with a little Alice in Chains for good measure. What Pineal succeeds where others have either failed or overlooked is that Pineal not only pays tribut to these bands and more with their sound and carries the torch as such but has also preserved the groove and the hook. Hooks and groove seem to be in short supply in music these last few years but Pineal have captured that lightning in a bottle and are not afraid to hook you with their drops while keeping their aggression alive. But don’t take my word for it. Take the Test Drive.
