Backseat Mafia reviews Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs album Viscerals

They say:

I’m only gonna write this once: Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs are ready to release this their 2nd Full Length, the first being the massive and ground breaking “King Of Cowards” back in 2018.  

For the purposes of not wearing out my keyboard they’ll be referred to forthwith as Pigs x7, and their newest addition to the world of hard, heavy guitar driven Rock/Punk/Metal Visceral will hit the unsuspecting public on Friday April 3rd.

Coming from Newcastle the band are made up of Matt Baty (Vocal), Adam Ian Sykes (Guitar), Sam Grant (Guitar), John Michael Hedley (Bass) and Chris Morley (Drums). If you’re new to them, it would be certainly advisable that you check out their first two releases, their “Feed The Rats” EP and “King Of Cowards” album.  

Not for the squeamish would be a reasonable analogy to use but not one that should put you off either; think Motorhead, Sabbath and throw in some self made Noise Rock, and you’re somewhere near the mark. Although it does somehow feel like this is ground that has been covered before, take the bands Hey Colossus or Part Chimp as examples of this, Pigs do do it so well And with such vigour and originality they can be forgiven. Mudhoney too, (there we go again dropping names) draw comparison as well – experimental, deep, a moment in time, all apt and work for this band too...
