Black Pestilence is touring in support of their latest and sixth studio record 2020’s “Hail the Flesh”. The album conquered the Canadian Loud Charts at #12 for all of 2020 (earshot) along with much praise from such outlets as Decibel Magazine “fans of Toxic Holocaust, Impaled Nazarene, Municipal Waste, Midnight and Cradle of Filth unconcerned with genre boundaries will enjoy Black Pestilence and we have to say the nail has certainly been hit on the head in that regard. Additionally, fans of image and theatrics will find value in the band’s aesthetic which owes to a collision of black metal, goth rock and Judas Priest’s wardrobe and fashion sense.” and Metal Injection “Hail the Flesh is a nice, quick, in and out style album. There’s no messing around, there’s no overly extended bridges or songs that overstay their welcome. This is a 9-track album that only spans 34 minutes of constant, hard-hitting riffs, blasts, and downright aggressive and dominative vocals.”
No strangers to pushing boundaries, Black Pestilence has been pounding out their signature blend of black metal, punk, and noisemaking across Canada and Europe since 2008. The band has previously toured Europe in 2016 and 2018, which included a performance at the 10 Year Anniversary of Death Fest in Bucharest, Romania.
The trio is stoked to perform live and tour for the first time since the Covid pandemic put things on hold. Their latest album “Hail the Flesh” is their most refined and mature record to date featuring nine blistering tracks with fast drums, angry vocals, and an array of synthesized melodies.
Formed by brothers Alex and William in Alberta Canada, and now based in Vancouver, BC, Bloated Pig is a three-piece heavy metal band who have been consistently touring and releasing material since 2005. Blending all styles from Rock n Roll to Death Metal, they have released three full-length albums and two EPs. With the departure of original bassist H.W. in 2019, low-end duties have been taken over by Matthew Riley who will make his studio debut on the new LP titled “6” which is set for release on September 9, 2022.
