Vulgar Pigeons CD review [Deepsend]
Apr 13, 2007, 15:53



Vulgar Pigeons, featuring in-demand producer Billy Anderson (Sleep, Red House Painters) is another band dedicated to the bludgeoning of eardrums with a maelstrom of ornery metal. More populist than their buddies Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Vulgar Pigeons rely on a more traditional, less schizophrenic brand of metal, mixing up the blast beats and tortured vocals with an undeniable hardcore influence reminiscent of Carnivore or latter Today Is The Day. While the album offers little in the way of surprises or musical innovation, the bass and drum interplay that introduces “Baseskull Bat” (yep, that's “Baseskull Bat,” folks) and the twin guitar harmonies on “Mental Outsource” are high points and make this brief album (on a handsome 3” CD) rather memorable, which is no small feat in a subgenre that reached its maximum occupancy over a decade ago.
