XII Boar - (2015) Pitworthy

Speeding at you like an out of control train, XII Boar (pronounced 'Twelve Boar') have been tearing a new one into the stoner/sludge/metal scene over the last few years. The three-piece wrecking ball from Aldershot, Hampshire; blast their way into your skull with ear-splitting leads, sonic riffs, filthy bass lines and a sweet southern groove. Combining Motorhead’s swagger, Black Sabbath’s downtrodden doom, the ferocity of High On Fire and the swinging crunch of Down – this power trio lay down a colossal slab of rock n' roll-infused, southern fried metal that fuels even the greatest parties! Having graced the stage at Bloodstock Festival, Desert Fest and Hard Rock Hell and opened for the likes of Corrosion of Conformity, Crowbar, ASG and Karma To Burn.

XII Boar's new, and first full length album is about to drop on the skulls of all the unsuspecting metal heads of the world. Ten tracks full of southern grit and a pissed off whiskey drunk attitude is on display for your earholes. Entitled "Pitworthy" and it truly is... This isn't slowed down stoner rock, (although the stoners out there will dig it too, I think) this is punk infused southern metal with nut bustin' riffs of fury. Fast-paced, punched-in-the-gut drumming and good gravely vocals that fit perfectly with all the ass kicking going on in the back-line.

Being a huge metal-head for around 30 years, I've heard it all before. The good, the bad, and the ugly. "Pitworthy" has it all. Taking me back to the past and showing signs of what metal and hard rock holds for the future. If you enjoy any of the other bands mentioned above, check this out... play it loud! Piss off your neighbors, cause this is what rock n' roll is all about. 

"Pitworthy" will be released worldwide March 9th. Preorder the digipack CD now from their website here. Along with other goodies.  And check out the video below for a taste.  -AW
