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.
