Moody, rich and dark. Pigs of the Roman Empire croon songs of love and hate in the sparse Post-Punk atmosphere of Melbourne.
With roots in the heavier side of music, Pigs have sculpted the thick tonal resonance of Stoner and Doom and applied it to the dissonant world of Joy Division and The Birthday Party.

A lovely big slab of twangy, swampy doom, guaranteed to make your ears ejaculate the words,  a song that truly deserves to be described as epic. The twanging eight minute long track “Hitchcock” from Melbourne duo Pigs of the Roman Empire sounds like Nick Cave fronting Southern Death Cult and is the best 8 minutes you’ll spend this week. It builds and builds into a wall of sound that’s more Spectre than Spector.
