Anthroprophh (SWX) built up tension with drums and percussion, before belting out the first of their tar black, monolithic constructions. The three piece managed an array of sounds: bass played / discarded / played; extra percussion pounded; samples and effects all over the place with primal vocals and all decorated with quicksilver solos. The perfect blend of space rock and metal with invigorating post-punk tribal drums. The tunes were not straightforward, but were free from artifice and it was easy for the listener to lose themselves in the crushing edifices pounded out without let up or mercy.
Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs (The Lanes) ended the night with the heaviest set of the day, their unique sound owing much to classic Sabbaff and yet they’ve forged their own monstrous, mesmerising take on metal. It was a minimal set with simple components but the less is more (MUCH MORE) riffs and bombastic rhythm section were welded together with an unerring sense of dynamics and topped by the vocal performance of the day. The room was rammed with the most animated crowd of the evening: despite the heat all present were carried away by the skull crushing riffs, a pit threatened to form but never quite took off but then the room was packed from wall to wall. A raucous finale from one of finest exponents of modern metal.

Vote here: Louder
And this is what they say about the track:
Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs - Cake Of Light
The curiously-named Newcastle riff-lords are at it again, with this track which is said to "do its damnedest to take consciousness to its very limits". It's heavy, it's sludgy, it's horrible – in short, it's infinitely enjoyable. On the new material, the band say: "For a long time I've questioned how and where guilt can be used as a form of oppression... When can guilt be converted into positive action? After typing all of the lyrics up I realised I'd unwittingly referenced every one of the seven deadly sins throughout the album. That's the fire and brimstone Catholic teachings I picked up at school coming into play there!"

‘Mien’ by MIEN
Contrary to countless other side-projects these four compelling musicians didn’t get together just to kill time. Their magical collaboration is nothing less than amazing. A five-star psych pop rainbow with starry-eyed waves and moony vibrations. Stellar!
