Pinkly Smooth was an American heavy metal band. The band was formed in the summer of 2001 in Huntington Beach, California, as a side project for Avenged Sevenfold's drummer/composer/songwriter Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan, and originally featured The Rev (under the name "Rathead") on vocals, along with fellow Avenged Sevenfold member Synyster Gates on guitar and former Ballistico band members Buck Silverspur (under the name "El Diablo") on bass and Derek Eglit (under the name "Super Loop") on drums. They released only one album, Unfortunate Snort, which featured former Avenged Sevenfold bassist Justin Meacham (under his stage name "Justin Sane") as a keyboard player. The band dissolved in 2002. In an interview in 2011, Synyster Gates said he would think about re-mastering and re-releasing Unfortunate Snort, though nothing has been said since.

Current activities[edit]

Derek Eglit has since formed the heavy metal group Painted Wives (formerly Railroad to Alaska), in which Meacham has made several live guest appearances on keyboards. Synyster Gates is still present in Avenged Sevenfold, as was The Rev until his death in 2009.
