Death In June - All Pigs Must Die [Leprosy Discs - 2009]

All Pigs Must die is a welcome reissue of Death In June’s harmonic yet schizophrenic and progressively unhinged album from 2001. It saw for the most part a return to simpler and memorable acoustic guitar, accordion, trumpet and flute song based sound, but with the odd flirtations with post-industrial sound scraping, noise matter and unhinged edgers.

The album orignally came about just after Douglas P left World Serpent distribution and his ensuing problems with the lable; and through out the album (to varying degrees) you can clearly feel his anger and rage at the situation streaming off the whole of the whole album. With at times the listener feeing rather threatened by seething emotional rage that this reaches in places. The album seemingly arching deeper into blacked anger as it progresses, with the acoustic and harmonic elements becoming corrupted,soiled,more noisy and high with a raising  psychotic psychedelic air.

The other influence here is the Manson Murders, with the pig imagery and description used often through-out the album's lyrics and of course on the wonderful disturbing cover picture of Douglas P attacking a Pig dolls tea party with a knife. But underneath all anger and rage there are still some great, classic and memorable Death in June songs here like the title track & Enemy With-in (which was recently covered on Down in June’s album).

All Pigs must die vents it’s anger in a creative, harmonic and at times scary manner and is another classic/distinctive entry in Death in Junes discography brought back into availability once more.
