With his latest endeavor, Supershine, dUg Pinnick (King's X/Poundhound/KMX) teams up with guitarist Bruce Franklin and drummer Greg Olsen, both formally of the doom metal band, Trouble. Their self-titled debut features 12 tracks deeply rooted in groove-based '70s rock, incorporating touches of psychedelia shrouded with ferocious metal outbursts. Pinnick's gospel-styled, soulful vocals (the most underrated in rock) and deep, rumbling bass lines compliment Franklin's infinite array of lethal guitar riffs while Olsen anchors the music with solid skinmanship. King's X timekeeper Jerry Gaskill also makes a guest appearance behind the kit. Supershine will surely appeal to King's X/Trouble fans, but it shouldn't be limited to just that audience. And while most projects fail to live up to the hype, this is one that exceeds expectation on a grand scale, confirming that the chemistry between Pinnick and Franklin shines ever so bright. You might just call that a Supershine. The 2022 Brutal Planet Records remaster is packaged in jewel case, a 12-page booklet, and the coveted Brutal Planet GoldMax treatment that collector's crave for their treasured albums. Oh, and every CD contains a limited edition gold-foil-stamped Collector card!
