about

Ron Anderson is back on guitar with a more powerful heavier sound. New members Steve Blanco (Imperial Triumphant) on bass and Larry Kwartowitz (Cleric) on drums are helping in stretching the bands previous boundaries pushing PAK to new sonic directions.

Next concert date
June 6 - The Kingsland, Brooklyn, NY

“…jazz, progressive rock, ambient, avant garde metal, math metal, experimental and improvisational. Whatever you consider it, PAK’s new full length Bestial is undeniably new, uncommon, and unique. The creation of [Ron Anderson] and like-minded partners (Steve Blanco of Imperial Triumphant, Larry Kwartowitz of Cleric) who recognize no boundaries between genres worlds apart and seemingly impossible to liquesce and cement at the core. […] Its boundless unpredictability is what makes it accessible to anyone willing to travel the deepest unfathomed depths of songwriting. The transitions in mood from ethereal to hypnotic to somber to aggressive, in which it’s uncertain what comes next, may seem disjointed and harrowing to you during the first couple of tracks. By the time the epic track “Prophesies of the Sybil” is underway a method to the madness is revealed, you start to realize how carefully crafted the album is and you understand the reasoning behind the radical mood changes. You wouldn’t believe the album was recorded in just two days considering the extensive preparation that went into writing and arranging the songs.” – Dave Wolff / Autoeroticasphyxium Zine

Ron Anderson New York

"Ron Anderson is among the lifers forming the vital backbone of the NYC new-music scene" - Time Out New York
"Part musical genius and part delirious madman, when you're listening to Anderson's music you're never quite sure whether you're listening to the ravings of an insane musical genius or the genius moments of a totally unschooled dilettante."Deep Fry Bonanza

Track Name: Reflection Consumer
time will tell just who you are
what you bought who you sold
your flaccid mind
is now exposed
an empty life

somnolent passivity
a wasted world
of useless chattel
see yourself
reflected there
