Deviate Beyond All Means of Capture

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Charlie Wilmoth
Skull Kontrol features vocalist Chris Thomson and guitarist Andy Coronado, both of the brilliant Monorchid. Skull Kontrol's debut EP isn't far from Monorchid's brand of angular punk rock: Thomson's snotty voice and oblique, urgent lyrics again lead the way and the songs fly by as quickly as those on either Monorchid album.
