I’m only gonna write this once: Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs are ready to release this their 2nd Full Length, the first being the massive and ground breaking “King Of Cowards” back in 2018.   For the purposes of not wearing out my keyboard they’ll be referred to forthwith as Pigs x7, and …

It’s been 29 years since Pearl Jam first released ‘Ten’ to the world. 16 million copies is an overwhelming amount of sales for any young band to handle.

The Heretic’s Bargain is rasping and raw, like a head with tailing entrails, flying through a midsummer evening, on its way to effectuate mass infanticide. Rangda consists of Sir Richard Bishop (Sun City Girls), Ben Chasny (Six Organs Of Admittance) and Chris Corsano (Bjork, Evan Parker), none of whom are strangers to exploring the psychedelic …

Evil Blizzard, one of the slightly less conventional acts (and we’re not just talking about the masks) to grace the current music scene are all set to release there follow up to last years debut long player ‘The Dangers Of Evil Blizzard’.
