EDITORS’ NOTES

Featuring members of Converge, Trap The, and Bloodhorse, All Pigs Must Die can be relied upon for maximum aggression and searing punk fury. On their third album, the band cranks the violence up to 11 with the addition of second guitarist Brian Izzi, who injects a burly dose of Swedish death metal into APMD’s muscular onslaught. From the opening barrage of the title track and psychotic frenzy of “A Caustic Vision” to the Sabbathian guitar moans of “Cruelty Incarnate,” Hostage Animal is a feral beast.

TITLE TIME

About All Pigs Must Die

With a name as subtle as a sledgehammer, All Pigs Must Die smash listeners with their intense blend of heavy metal and d-beat-heavy hardcore punk. Featuring a who's who of Massachusetts metal players, the band brings together the talents of Converge's Ben Koller, Hope Conspiracy's Kevin Baker, and Bloodhorse's Matt Woods and Adam Wentworth in a furious quartet. The band debuted its relentless sound in 2010 with a self-titled EP released on Nonbeliever Records. Later that year, they hit the studio with Converge guitarist and prolific metal producer/engineer Kurt Ballou and began work on a full-length. In 2011, the band signed on with Southern Lord, which released their debut LP, God Is War, in the summer of that year. A second album, Nothing Violates This Nature, arrived in the summer of 2013. Four years later, the band issued its third effort, Hostage Animal, which featured the singles "A Caustic Vision" and "Blood Wet Teeth." ~ Gregory Heaney
