Bonnacons of Doom, ‘Bonnacons of Doom’
Every time I’ve played this to people they are transfixed by the opening vocals. Shrieks fly out of the speakers backed by a slow cosmic beat emerging. Then that riff which creates a smooth groove that runs throughout the album. BOD describe themselves as ‘Trans-penine hypnotic music’. Wherever you are from, this is music for wandering through the woods, climbing up hills, or simply getting lost in the moment.
Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, ‘King of Cowards’
Like big riffs and great band names? If so, Pigs X 7 are the band for you. This one – their second on Rocket Recordings – is a banquet of good time, big riffs. Like Black Sabbath if they were formed in the North of England. This is an album to play loud and proud. I’m seeing them for the first time next year and have heard great things about their live show, so I’m very excited.
