SKY PIG – IT THRIVES IN DARKNESS

Forbidden Place Records released the following album early October and this doom, sludge nugget hit like a freight train full of earthquakes! Indeed, we are talking about SKY PIG and their It Thrives In Darkness album…

Or as Kyle SB said: “Where 2020’s “Hell is inside you” was evil, thunderously heavy, and sickeningly psychedelic, “It Thrives in Darkness” consistently one-ups it. The drums are booming, the walls of guitar and bass tone are on the Richter scale, and the vocals are gut-wrenching. It’s not all big and burly though, as singer and guitarist Rob Sneddon mixes things up with some clean vocals that are truly the icing on Sky Pig’s rancid cake. Cavernous and haunting, not unlike his usual scorching delivery in a way, but the passages of clean singing are subdued and warped as to augment each song’s atmosphere perfectly.”

And Joop Konraad (Hey, that’s me! Huh?) stated: “Sky Pig, the name always makes me think of Animals by Pink Floyd, which saw a new version releases recently. But the Sacramento trio, delivering its full-sized debut It Thrives In Darkness on Forbidden Place Records have little to do with or time for the Floyd stuff. No, they deliver metal, of the doom and sludge variation, with some definite menacing post-metal and ominous psych influences interspersed. Scuzzy, fuzzy and filthy.”

Their own words:

“Sinister, riff-laden psychedelic sludge reaching inward and pummeling your insides. For fans of Melvins, Ufomammut and Neurosis.

This record did not come without adversity. These songs were spawn over a 3 year period fraught with turmoil, an ever-changing pandemic, switching of band members and the loss of some dear friends and family. We’d like to dedicate this record to those friends and family members who have moved on from this existence. You’ll be missed.

Sky Pig would like to collectively thank Forbidden Place Records for believing in what we do and giving us a platform to share this record with the world. Also big thanks to Patrick (EarthTone) Hills for another huge sounding record. Also like to thank all the killer bands we’ve played with, venues, promoters, reviewers, sound engineers, bloggers, heavy music lovers who took the time to talk about, share or just listen and of course our families that put up with our insanity and still support us. It means everything!”
