Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs are the extra-dense grouping of members of such heavy North-East bands as Khunnt and Blown Out. They play sludged-up psych-rock that just hammers and hammers away at the listener with noisy riffs until you fall over. Feed The Rats is a full-length album with just three tracks, allowing the jams to expand to vast proportions. On Rocket Recordings.

Opening their new EP with a haughty heavy rock yelp of “yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeahhhhhhhhhhh!” or something similar over crunchy ‘n’ thick riffs and smashes, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs might as well have called this record Yes, We Are Stoners, It Is The Case That We Get Stoned. They didn’t, though, and that’s fine. Their Sabbath-saddled doom-psych continues to be high-energy and thrill-centric on ‘Feed the Rats’, which offers two fifteen minute rawk filibusters that move elastically between certain killer guitar lines made of clay-splattered brick.
“Psychopomp” sounds heavy on your ears: listening to it will tire out your arms, with its triumphantly repetitive riffs and reverberating scowls. It gets broken down and reincarnated in slight variations but ultimately feels like fifteen minutes of sheer resilience. “Sweet Relief”, the five minute tune that follows, feels like little more than the credits rolling on it, a quick fill introducing a similar back-and-forth riff before they move on to the blood-curling “Icon”, which starts quiet and moody before unleashing its riff in the main. I can safely report it is another slow thrasher; I trust you will know what to do. Seven Pigs remain the same dense, swamplike psych proposition they've always been, so have this in your life.
9/10 Greg Customer review, 8th February 2017
In its 40-minute odyssey, Pigs X 7 doesn’t ease the listener through the experience. Instead it pummels them relentlessly into submission throughout. Their aim was to make the most unpleasant, yet accessible noise they could possibly make, and it’s worked to perfection. It isn’t heavy like ‘heavy metal’ heavy, it’s ‘getting sucked into a black hole’ heavy! While Black Sabbath sadly said farewell to the metal world, you can be sure that with intense and unremittingly loud bands such as Pigs X 7, the future is indeed in safe hands.
