PIG Gets You Through The Holidaze With Black Mass

“Previously in the world of Raymond Watts…”

Seriously, though, with each release that <PIG> has put out this year I feel the need to have a title card akin to Star Wars explaining what has happened up until now. But at the end of the day, we can all agree on one thing: There is no such thing as too much <PIG>!

But I digress. [Read more…]

PIG Meets Sasha Grey, Covers KC & the Sunshine Band. Because Why Not.

One day soon I hope to run across some newer <PIG> fans and, like a crotchety old man of 40, spew off lines like: “You kids have it so easy! Back in my day, Raymond Watts waited a decade between albums! And when he did release records it was only in Japan! Before Amazon! And the internets!” Seriously though, and unlike a crotchety old man of my age, I feel blessed to live in this wondrous time where Watts has rediscovered the fire and has re-emerged with a (seemingly) untapped well of new material.

PIG Continues Comeback Ascent On Illuminating Risen

If you’ve been with <PIG> since the beginning then the natural progression of this awesome Electro/Industrial/Glam project has been the absolute best rollercoaster to ride on, especially with the recent second coming phase. However, if The Gospel and subsequent current outings haven’t been your cuppa then my best advice is that you’d best scurry back to the fold and beg for forgiveness because all you non-believers are about ready to bear witness to a more even keeled, well-rounded, and fine tuned incarnation of <PIG>.

17 For ’17: An Exhaustive List From Rock And Roll Fables Of What You Should’ve Already Bought This Year

It’s that time of the year again! A time of reflection! A time of typing! A time of regretting the decision to pick the amount of best albums based on what year it is.

Review links are attached to the band name where applicable. Thanks in advance for reading! [Read more…]

PIG Continue Comeback Victory Lap With Prey & Obey EP

Oh my! If you were underwhelmed by last year’s comeback and the accompanying Remix album (Released earlier this year) then the Lord of Lard has something that will guarantee your return to the flock. But let’s be honest, if you weren’t impressed with those two slabs of finely constructed (and deconstructed) Industrial malevolence then were you ever really in the flock??? [Read more…]

PIG Returns And Brings The Gospel To The Masses. Sinners Rejoice!

7823881040

Take a dab of Depeche Mode’s Violator, a smidge of Marilyn Manson’s The Pale Emperor, a little of Nick Cave’s “Red Right Hand” and….you know what? Forget that! <PIG> is only comparable to <PIG> and the latest from the Lord of the Lard is no exception and certainly an album that stands on its own within the upper echelon of rawk. [Read more…]

PRAISE THE LARD, Pig has risen again and blessed his herd with not one, but two releases this year with hopefully more to follow (New full-length please?). If you’re impatient (Like me!) and can’t hold out until the EP with Primitive Race is released in June (Our review is here) then how about some instant gratification in the form of the Compound Eye Sessions?

Pig Returns! Primitive Race Rises! Long In The Tooth EP Set For June Release!

PromoImage (69)
After all the hype and all the build up, being able to FINALLY talk about a “proper” release from Primitive Race is an amazing thing. Mastermind Chris Kniker has concocted this masterpiece of an EP that’s old school industrial yet firmly planted in today. Long In The Tooth is the name of the EP and the title track and it is ten tracks of perfectly executed electronic madness serenely sung by the one and only Raymond Watts. [Read more…]
