Pacific Death – “The Art Of Stealing Tulips From The Devil’s Garden”


A fervent prog-rock success from Stockholm-based artist Pacific Death, “The Art Of Stealing Tulips From The Devil’s Garden” presents the audible journey of a breathtaking mission — specifically: “the entire journey of a professional thief breaking into and stealing tulips from the devil’s heavily protected garden.” Sprightly woodwind-like maneuvering shows initially, launching seamlessly into a dexterous array of thunderous guitar lines. The dynamic, guitar-led production continues the entrancement from there, showcasing the gripping progressive rock sound from this one-man project.

While the project began as a more electronic pursuit, a more guitar-laden sound was introduced on Pacific Death’s second album. “The Art Of Stealing Tulips From The Devil’s Garden” continues that guitar-fronted enamoring in stellar form. An especially catching sequence comes in the ascent to the two-minute turn; playful guitars and shimmering organs launch cohesively into enveloping propulsions of guitar distortion. Pacific Death thoroughly impresses with this passionate, evolving rocker.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Emerging Singles’ Spotify playlist.

We discovered this release via MusoSoup, as part of the artist’s promotional campaign.
