With song titles such as: Rats(This World Is A Sewer), Taste The Fucking Poison and more, one can imagine that Pig’s Blood is one of those death metal bands that doesn’t loathe the human race right? Within Pig’s Blood’s new full self titled full length you find everything that is the complete opposite of friendly and everything that is brain bashing and flesh ripping. You are provided with ten bestial death metal tunes that come barreling out from your speakers from the first note on never relenting until your throat has been slashed and you have been completely drained of your blood. Pig’s Blood doesn’t start you off easy either as they sand your skull with Misanthrope Absolute to begin with. From the very first note of this opening track you quickly realize what a devastating and incredibly punishing listen you are in for.
Pig’s Blood doesn’t seem to hold anything back on this record as they come out right from the get go ready to behead and bury anyone that gets in their way. This new record of theirs rolls on for ten straight disgusting, twisted, vile and malignant tracks that get your head banging from the first note. Pig’s Blood is exactly as they describe themselves, “bestial death murderers”, and really it can’t be much more spot on than that. Never once does Pig’s Blood let their foot off of your throat for a second on this record as they roll out track after track of fetid blood soaked death metal. There isn’t much time within this release to escape for so much as a breath as Pig’s Blood shovels more and more frothing filth upon you until you suffocate.
This self titled release is an all out assault and it seems to have as complete disregard for human life as it beats you over the head only to leave you bloodied in a shallow ditch. This record is raw and dehumanizing as it provides you with ten bowel bursting tracks. With its unkempt energy, thirst for blood and complete lack of any other emotion other than anger, this release makes for one hell of a detrimental and killer listen. Even as barbaric and abominable as it is, you still feel compelled to come back for more and more of this delightfully slaughtering music. Each component on this record from the musicianship to the gore filled vocals all the way to the raw production and everything else in between, this self titled record is a well put together and great listen.
Overall, this record certainly is death murder metal and that just about sums it up. Pig’s Blood is vile, malevolent and gruesome, and with that combined you are treated to a sickening and very heavy listen.
