Feed the Corpses to the Pigs
Anthology EP

I’m an Albuquerque native, I’ve lived in New Mexico, specifically the Albuquerque area for the better part of my life, which makes me a local. The scene here is stronger than ever before, having been blessed by bands like Unearth, Infested Corpse, Laughing Dog, Manias and Smashed Hands. To the new generation of bangers with the ladies in Suspended, my buddy Jespah Torres (ex- Caustic Lye) and his band Ritual Noise Abuse and now adding Feed the Corpses to the Pigs to the list of agents of Southwestern brutality with the reissue of their fantastic 2019 EP,

According to the press release, Anthology was a one-off recording session and their first actual album, This Insidious Horror was released in 2021. Kind of confusing; maybe because I’m stoned, but what fucking ever, Anthology is a fucking raging tsunami of riffs and blast beats galore. I’m here today, constant readers, to tell you why you need this in your life.

An amalgamation of influences is the best way to describe what you get from Anthology. There’s Black Metal, Death Metal, Grindcore, Hardcore/Punk, and galloping Thrashers all wrapped up in eight tracks of pure mayhem. The first track out of the gate is “Slaughtercraft” with a Destruction-esque riff reminiscent of “Curse the Gods”; a few blast beats and a crushing solo and it’s over. According to the press release, the album tells two stories; the first is a Serial Killer trying to stop the ‘ghost lights’ of his victims from haunting him and the second tells the story of a vengeful teenager. “Haunted” is up next injecting some Black Dahlia Murder feelings to the mix, “I Will Make You Dig Your Grave” is a Punked Up thrasher with some killer shout-back vocals. “Under the Scenery” has a ripping, vicious Hardcore style interspersed with earth-shattering blast beats and a glorious breakdown around the 1:04 mark that would make Integrity blush.

“Helpless Anger” is just a tight example of Blackened Thrash done in one minute and eleven seconds. “I Fed the Book My Blood” is a heavy-duty Doom crusher with a sickly infectious riff that just wraps around your eardrums like those fucking little creatures in Star Trek 2. While “Don’t Put the Cart Before the Hearse” is this Black Metal Punked motherfucker and closing track “Eternal Servitude” sports a sick as back-breaking fuck breakdown before a blasting exit. Then you hit play again. I need to delve into This Insidious Horror and get more of this Southwestern brutality. Although according to Metal-archives.com that album came out in 2021 so I hope that they release a new album soon.

To sum it up in a nut, Albuquerque has a voracious and hungry metal scene and it’s bands like Feed the Corpses to the Pigs, that keep the brutality connoisseurs satisfied out here. Check them out with a side of Hatch green chile, you won’t be disappointed.
