Pig’s Blood Continue Metal’s Long, Proud Tradition of Awesome Stuff with the Word “Pig” in the Name
Metal has had nothing but good luck when it comes to pigs. There’s Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs,” Nine Inch Nail’s Sus-themed duology, “Piggy” and “March of the Pigs,” All Pig Must Die, and, of course, the purveyor’s of the most delicious musical bacon of all, Pig Destroyer.
Metal now has another oinkin’ great pig about which to boast: Pig’s Blood. The Wisconsin outfit’s self-titled debut is a molotov cocktail of death metal and grindcore that’s crustier than a dried masturbation sock and blacker than the cover of Spinal Tap’s Smell the Glove. It’s so good, in fact, that it redeems the entire state of Wisconsin for having previously given the world the one metal pig project to poop the pen. They should give Pig’s Blood a freakin’ metal.
