The noise levels surrounding this gig is the only thing that comes close to the volume on the night. Amongst a certain scene, the only question on anyone’s lips is, “Are you going to Pigs?” Over and over. It’s no surprise that a show at The Haunt early next year has already been announced, such is the anticipation tonight.
Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, or Pigs x7 to you and I, are a sound from a bygone era. Currently riding a wave which includes a sold-out show at The Hope & Ruin in November, the Rocket Recordings signees have released another early metal-styled record in the vein of Black Sabbath with enough lyrical and technical nuance to straddle it into a new era. A six-track hit of early metal, prog and a dose of devilish influences make Pigs x7 one of the most interesting cult bands around at the moment. King of Cowards is a fiendish, yet seductive, journey into the world of heavy metal and arguably, one of the most accessible metal records for a long while.
