Opening with a chugging power chord guitar riff 911 is an assault on the senses with some terrific interplay between the guitars and heavy bass all held together by some great drumming.

Psychopigs are a four piece band from Galway, Ireland (where Punkonline.co.uk founder once lived!) and they cannot be pigeonholed as a 3 chord punk band. The bass heavy The Boss launches into a sing-along chorus that had us head banging at HQ.

The band has been plying their trade since 2008 and they have honed a tight, powerful sound that is well produced on this fantastic second album. There are hints of Paranoid Visions (or was I swayed by the Irish connection?) as well as Amebix and even a nod towards Napalm Death.

Psychopigs have supported bands such as Anti Nowhere League and Kranium from Sweden and they seem to have taken in a whole bunch of influences, put them through the shredder and created a unique sound that I urge you to check out. It’s one of the most refreshing punk albums I have heard in the last year or so. Heaven is simply a monumental 5 minutes of heavy bliss. It’s followed by the hardcore speed-fest of Lead showcasing the versatility of the band.

As the album progresses the band continues to surprise as each track demonstrates a different structure, rhythm and approach. The title song Neverrevolution starts with a Metallica riff and morphs into a classic punk track.

The album closes with 3 strong efforts – Slave no More, Cops are Coming and Gone 2 France. Each one is powerful, showcasing different rhythms, tempos and lyrical approaches. The last song on the album is brilliant…slow, menacing, and with a sense of humour.

The album is available on the bandcamp link (see below) Get it!
