Published Oct 24, 2013"Pigs Kissing Pigs," the latest track to stream off Philip H. Anselmo and his band the Illegals' new limited edition 10-inch, may start off quieter than most of their catalogue, but don't worry, it ends up being as destructive as anything you'd expect from the metal legend.
The track begins with serene guitar strums and an indecipherable bluesy croon, as filtered through a scratchy, faux-vinyl production technique. It soon zooms into a flurry of drum blasts and eagle shrieks, though, with Anselmo cryptically noting "the failed musician strikes again." The track cascades through mosh passages and another downtempo section, and wraps with a bizarre blend of pitch-shifted demon howls.
