Review: All Pigs Must Die – Nothing Violates This Nature

Rated:

3.5/5

With the highly-anticipated successor to 2011’s incendiary God Is War, All Pigs Must Die (featuring member of Converge and The Hope Conspiracy) have somehow gone even more for the throat, barreling into their second album of crushing blackened thrash with every gun blazing. At times, this straightforward approach, along with a smoother production sound, strips the Massachusetts quartet of the nuanced breakdowns and guitar leads that made their previous material so captivating. But tracks like “Chaos Arise,” “Bloodlines,” and “Sacred Nothing” still provide all the tooth gnashing and fist swinging one wants from this fresh and fearsome new talent. CHRIS KROVATIN
