New York's Pigs has returned with a new album that continues the sludge metal and noise rock style of previous recordings and this is a review of their 2015 album "Wronger" which was released by Solar Flare Records.
A very distorted sound starts off the album a long with some melodic noise rock style guitar leads and after the intro drum beats are added onto the recording along with some very heavy riffing and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the music also brings in the heaviness of sludge.
When vocals are added into the music they are very aggressive yet melodic at the same time and when the music speeds up a bit it brings in the energy of old school hardcore punk along with a touch of grunge and a lot of the songs mix in a great amount of 90's influences while also always sticking to either or slow or mid paced musical direction. and one track brings in a brief use of bluegrass and spoken word parts before making a return back to a heavier musical direction and one track also brings in a brief use of female vocals and the last track is very long and epic in length and also brings in a brief use of clean playing.
Pigs creates another recording that take s the noise rock style of the 90's and updates it for the modern days with the heaviness of sludge metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Pigs and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Great Blight" "Mope" "Make Sure to Forget" and "Wronger". 8 out of 10.
