Using genetic data and sonic techniques developed during these earlier musical excursions, Flynn Picardal created The Icecold Archbishop. As a hybrid coagulated from both human and non-human DNA, The Icecold Archbishop will create new, mosaic life-forms while also rebooting selected items from the mummified, Probe-Front nexus.

The Archbishop's song-cells are comprised of power, pop, sarcasm, and metal. While conductive nanowires link one cell with another, individual cells manifest their shared heritage differently. This results in an intra-species variation that increases survival chances in an overcrowded environment.

Although currently isolated in this lonely corner of the internet, the Creator hopes that these musical spores will escape the laboratory to cause widespread infection.
Realization of these hopes, my friends, is up to you!

Reason for Being

Flynn Picardal is the Icecold Archbishop. Well, sort of. As someone wrote many years ago, life is short and art is long. Although something is lost in direct translation from the Latin, you get the point. Well, I’ll let you in on a little secret. Science is even ‘longer’ than art. It therefore makes sense to devote at least a portion of our short lives to the longer lasting pursuits of art and science.

I follow the scientific road under my given name. The other path is for the Icecold Archbishop. I’m not at all sure if music such as this is art. But it’s something that never existed anywhere before and that’s enough for me. And anyway, I’m doing all of this for me, not you. With that said, the Icecold Archbishop hopes that you hear something that you like. Keep listening until you do.
