King Of Cowards ROCKET 8/10 no half measures for riff-loving newcastle rockers
As you should be able to tell from the name, Pigs x 7 are a band that appreciate a bit of theatre. There is plenty of that going on in this second album, along with a whole bunch of heavenly riffs – the crocodile bounce and serpentine crawl of “A66” is one of the finer of many examples on display, while “Cake Of Light” flounces by with a jaunty air – amid a general air of sustained Sabbath-inspired menace. There’s an epic sensibility to pretty much everything this band do, with songs generally clocking in at around seven minutes and the album referencing the seven deadly sins.
