Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs – King Of Cowards – Limited Regal Splatter Vinyl, Rocket Recordings, 2023

Seven is the magic number. Indeed, not only do psychologists theorise that the human brain can only memorise a sequence of this length, but Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs – the Newcastle-based maximalists whose riffs, raw power and rancor have blazed a trail across the darker quarters of the underground in the last five years – have made a second album in King Of Cowards which does its damnedest to take consciousness to its very limits.

Moreover, another notable seven is dealt with here – that of the deadly sins. As vocalist and synth player Matt Baty notes 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! Building on the momentum this band has built since their 2017 debut Feed The Rats, this opus sees them entering a new phase as a sleeker and still more dangerous swineherd.

The Iggy-esque drive to dementia, Sabbath-esque squalor and Motorhead-style dirt may still be present and correct, yet the songs are leaner, the long-drawn-out riff-fests sharpened into addictive hammerblows and the nihilistic dirges of yore alchemically transformed into an uplifting and inviting barrage of hedonistic abandon. One of the bands to watch in 2018. The Guardian The demons have been summoned, channelled and purged. The Quietus It’s akin to bottling hellfire. Crack Magazine
