'Viscerals' by Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs (or Pigs x7 if you prefer) is the band’s third album, following 2018’s 'King Of Cowards' and their 2017 debut 'Feed The Rats'. The LP finds the heavy psych-rockers really hitting their stride, delivering a leaner, more direct sound with catchy songs built on noisy rocking riffs. 'Viscerals' is an apt title indeed - some have even mentioned Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs as heirs to Black Sabbath's bounty.

The bizarrely yet brilliantly named Geordie rockers are back, returning with their finest offering to date. On third album ‘Viscerals’, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs pull off the ridiculously challenging feat of shifting their sound into catchier territories whilst keeping their signature heavy psychedelia intact. ‘Viscerals’ features leaner structures, shorter songs, smarter songcraft and more immediate riffing.

Kicking off proceedings with a standalone drum intro à la Motörhead’s ‘Overkill’, Melvin’s ‘Houdini’ and Judas Priest’s ‘Painkiller’ (three clear influences on the album), ‘Reducer’ immediately demands attention which rarely lets up for the duration of the album. Both ‘Reducer’ and the following track ‘Rubbernecker’ are two career-bests which are going to go down incredibly with audiences on their now rescheduled European tour. The latter sounds like if Janes Addiction got heavily into Hendrix and Kyuss’ ‘Welcome To Sky Valley’ back in the day. We’re back to a classic Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs affair with the sludgy ‘New Body’, pairing Melvins-esque sparsity with the incredible opening line “I’ve had too much to drink, too much to think/I’m dancing with the devil with two left feet”. The track pushes the 7-minute mark, ending in a hellish extended breakdown of squealing guitars and lumbering drums. Longer tracks such as this one and ‘Halloween Bolson’ will satisfy fans of ‘Feed The Rats’-era Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs with their on-off rhythmic belligerence and elongated freak-outs.

The interlude ‘Blood and Butter’ both humours and terrifies, splitting the album up nicely before launching back into the stoner-thrash of ‘World Crust’. This one transports me right back to being a nipper and discovering Mastodon for the first time, whilst ‘Crazy In Blood’ reminds me of embracing the retro-metal of Judas Priest. ‘Viscerals’ ends on the swaggering, near-anthemic ‘Hell’s Teeth’, acting as a summary of the vigour showcased throughout the record.  

‘Viscerals’ justifies Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs’ recent popularity boost but also begs the question as to why they aren’t being booked alongside acts from the doom, stoner and sludge spheres. They deserve high placements at heavy festivals like Roadburn, Psycho Las Vegas and Desertfest to celebrate with their surprise success story with alternative music fans.
