Review Summary: put him in a body bag!
All Pigs Must Die - Nothing Violates This Nature
Boston hardcore super group, and all-around ass kickers, All Pigs Must Die continue the onslaught that their debut album God Is War
started with a healthy ten song offering of bludgeoning metal akin to felony assault with a lead pipe. As is the common theme of a healthy minority of the roster that California label Southern Lord has cultivated, All Pigs Must Die’s sophomore LP Nothing Violates This Nature
grabs you by the balls instantly in the opener “Chaos Arise”, as if the schizophrenic and lightening quick hi-hat count off from Ben Koller the instant after hitting the play button isn’t subtle enough. As you can imagine from the band name, Nothing Violates This Nature
lacks any form of subtlety in its sonic barrage of hate-filled anthems, chalk full of ferocity, violence, aggression, and nihilism. Taking about as much influence from the recent trend of aggressive Entombed worship metal groups, to the “fu
ck you”-attitude of Discharge punks, All Pigs Must Die cater to focused, yet highly devout following in a new wave of heavy music.
Nothing Violates This Nature
rarely lets up on the gas pedal throughout its ten song length. Whether the quasi black metal tremolo opener of “Primitive Fear”, to even the hauntingly acoustic opener “Of Suffering” before plummeting into a doom inspired dirge, Nothing Violates...
runs the gamut of a plethora of extreme heavy metal genres, not necessarily reinventing the wheel by any means but still packing enough of a punch to appreciate its ferocity on every listen. That being said, Nothing Violates This Nature
won’t throw many curve balls your way, but for those in the need to get their fill of anger and aggression out this is most definitely the album to pick up and put on repeat. An ass kicking from top to bottom, All Pigs Must Die’s sophomore album is rife full of killer with next to nil filler.
