Earthings Reviews Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs - King Of Cowards

They say:

Well, this one sounds big. But then, that’s what Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs – count that, seven – specialize in. But with the release of their new album Kings of Cowards, the Newcastle quintet manage to sound even bigger while also managing to sound more accessible. Their first album, Feed the Rats, was more explicitly an art piece: three tracks totaling 36 minutes, a complete assault on the senses. This one is six tracks totaling 40 minutes, and while it’s still an assault, it somehow lets you run a little bit first. Imagine how the threat (for lack of a better term) looms over you when you do that. I’m not one for metal, or metal revivalists, bit King of Cowards makes it easier – and the impact is not any less harder, denser, deeper. Perhaps it’s stronger, because there’s time for things to build up before the boom. And yes, I did plug this album in early in the morning, and it worked, too. [NB] | 4/5
