Now here’s a fine way to kick off the year: the debut album from Longpig, Shrine of the Longpig. The project is a collaborative effort between Cyst, Lvmmvx and The Vomit Arsonist and comes to us courtesy of New York’s powerhouse of industrial music, Annihilvs Power Electronix. The result is half what you would expect from a combination of those artists: pulverising, suffocating and dark. But that’s only the beginning. The release also comes with a second disc, where each of the five Longpig tracks has been remixed by rising electronica stars Snowbeasts.
What we have for you today are two tracks, one from each part of the album.
First, here’s ‘War Chants of the Damned’, from Longpig alone:
And now, feast your ears on the pounding remix of ‘Savage’ from Snowbeasts:
Shrine of the Longpig is available for pre-order from the Annihilvs Bandcamp Page. The official release date isn’t until January 20th, but it is already close to selling out.
