XII Boar have racked up an impressive catalogue of support gigs, opening for Corrosion Of Conformity and Crowbar, and their debut full-length proves they were worthy of these feats.
Pitworthy gives you everything you want from a metal album, charged with a loud, raw energy that can rarely be captured in a recording studio.
Their energetic mix of hardcore punk growls, thrashing beats and Southern grooves makes for a sludgy treat. They expertly juxtapose Sabbath-like doom with crunching basslines and catchy hooks, taking cues from Lemmy’s smoke-drenched snarls for a heavy-as-hell experience.
The record skips from the 70s-styled sonic riffs of The Schaeffer Boogie to the hefty title track and seamlessly shifts to the instrumental Crawdaddy Blues, that fits right in with their furiously booty-shaking blend of headbanging heavy metal.
These Hampshire boys are preparing to fuck shit up. They will succeed./o:p
