I want to dedicate this review to the memory of Miroslav Ubias. Czech legends Pigsty were silent for many years, actually, I thought that this band was done but I was wrong. Pig Blood is a 4th full length and very unusual work. For more than 2 decades guys played crashing grind, but with this work, they make a step from that direction. But let`s go in order. I can call this album conceptual, the whole LP dedicated and soaked with an unholy theme. The artwork looks fantastic, I feel the satanic atmosphere of that angry pig, haha! As for the album…
I heard a lot of negative reviews about “Pig Blood”. Many old fans were disappointed, but I dig this album a lot! Yes, this work has less grind and more death metal and nu-metal… but it still kicks ass! Also, guys used a lot of samples from the “Omen” movie and that trick works with me. It helps to create a warm but dark atmosphere of horror. Sound work is impressive, everything sounds super heavy and bulldozing! There are many who think that this LP is overloaded with the samples, but I can`t say that. Well, maybe there are a few moments like that but it`s not the end of the world. As for the instruments, hmm they sound great (but I don`t really want to write usual and boring words about them), it would be much better if you will find some time and check it by yourself. Ah yes, the gloomiest song of the album is “The Devils Trinity”, don`t dare to skip it, haha!
I want to be honest I really loved this album, it has its own mood and atmosphere. Hail Satan!
