Southern Lord Recordings have set an August 16, 2011 release date for All Pigs Must Die debut album, God Is War. Here is the adjective filled description:
Combining of old-school Swedish death metal savagery with explosive hardcore aggression and blistering, punk/d-beat energy, All Pigs Must Die have quickly become an extremely recognized and respected act in the mere year and a half since the band's formation.
Their crushing 2010-released self-titled EP was initially released on LP via the band's own Nonbeliever Records, eventually catching the ear of Southern Lord, who almost immediately picked up the album for distribution, and signed the hard-working act for the release of their newly completed God Is War full-length.
A group committed to uncompromising sonic warfare APMD explode on God Is War, the album's sound and lyrical content assaulting the listener in a fury of death-filled anthems. Their upbeat flurry is slowed only for the occasional snail-paced buildup of mammoth riff tension, the rush of obvious hatred for humanity relentlessly displayed through it all. Recorded and mixed by Converge guitarist Kurt Ballou at his God City Studio (Black Breath, Nails, Trap Them, Disfear) in December, the tone of God Is War is as foreboding as the music itself. The cover bears a fittingly dark drawing by famed artist Florian Bertmer, who was also responsible for the artwork on APMD's self-titled EP.
