Deville – Pigs With Gods

Deville – Pigs With Gods
Fuzzorama – 2018
Rock, Stoner, Metal
Rated: ****

Back in 2013 we mentioned their almighty Hydra album. Two other great ones came before and one damn great one called Make It Belong To Us came out two years later. Why we never mentioned that record beats the hell out of me? I reckon we should be flogged for neglect and dragged down the streets naked. Tar and feathers may be applied. For forgetting to worship the four Swedes from Deville and their fourth release, is pure heresy. So, let’s try to make up for the negligence and mention their fifth one entitled: Pigs With Gods. No less than twelve tracks grace the album and all of them are gritty, grimy and aggressive. Moving distinctly into a more metal approach and fast paced dynamic the album soon becomes a stalwart testament to something we like to call: leaving all options open. Whether this is due to the new rhythm section or not; the tracks try different approaches to their stoner metal sound. Opting for bombast here, groove there or spacious post influences where ever they envision them. It seems Deville has thrown all the imaginary boundaries out the window and aimed to make the record they heard in their head. And that is the only way to go. Cause now we have a muddy masterpiece in which to wallow…
