Viscerals favours shorter track lengths and more immediate songs ... There are some bigger, more sprawling tracks too, and these don’t disappoint.

God Is in the TV

This album is nothing less than brilliant, it may not be to your taste, but these five musicians have created their 3rd full-length long-player and laid down an album that would wake even the dead!

Loud and Quiet

The record is all guts and glory, tauter than before and all the better for it. It’s relentless; an all-out-assault of riffs and rumblings that pushes Pigs to new heights.

The Skinny

They’ve gone from mammoth, side-long pseudo-jams to relatively bite-sized chunks without sacrificing any of the fury they’ve harboured from the beginning.

Gigwise

Viscerals is going to be an incredible record to hear live, and is equally as impactful in its own right.

The Line of Best Fit

It isn’t often that metal is as direct and exhilarating as it is on Viscerals, and despite a series of songs concerned with the more unsavoury facets of life, there is a furious energy at the heart of the record it’s hard not to get swept up in.

Riffs a-plenty and enough thunder from each member of the band to scare Lightning McQueen, Viscerals is a chunky, raw, slightly psychedelic and occasionally Punk inspired addition to the wonderful world of Stoner Rock/Metal. Comparisons to Elder are gonna be obvious, but at the same time kind of necessary as Elder have provided, for years now, the kind of quality Stoner Metal that pulls in people who aren't even familiar with the genre, including myself. What 7 Pigs does with Viscerals though ... read more

A gastric blast.

Stoner Metal and Post Punk are two genres I'm rather hit-or-miss on so I was surprised to be hearing a record with influences of both appealing to me so much. This has some heavy Misfits vibes too which is a bonus. Really love the song topics and the gritty instrumentals on here. Just some very fun hard-hitting anthems.

...Never did I think someone saying they were on a diet would be intimidating and ominous.

If it wasn't for the cover art, I probably wouldn't have checked this one out. I'm glad I did because man is it fucking fun and heavy hitting.
