Carcass, Napalm Death, Death, Skeletonwitch, Skinless, Pig Destroyer, and Impaled Nazarene
As covered on Decibel Magazine, Blabbermouth, and Brave Words, This Insidious Horror is a hook-forward LP with tales of technocratic rulers, murderous cults, and otherworldly terrors. Horror comes in many forms; the Pigs revel in them all. Feed the Corpses to the Pigs pummels and brutalizes their listeners with their mix of old-school and new-school metal styles including grindcore, crossover, black, and death metal. Featuring guest musicians Rick Rozz (Death/Massacre) and Miasma Recording artist Daniel Torgal (Analepsy/Enblood) as well as mastering done by one of the most sought after engineers today, Will Putney (Fit for an Autopsy), This Insidious Horror captures the chaotic nature of the world today in song form and the outlook is bleak.

Guitarist/Vocalist Shawn Fink on working with Rick Rozz, “They say you should never meet you idols, but man I am glad I did. He was so cool and humble through the process. Rick really cared about our band and gave us valuable advice. Sometimes with bands, it is a race to the bottom with an ego battle, but Rick just reinforced the idea that metal bands should work together and raise each other up.”
On working with Daniel Torgal, “Daniel was awesome. He understood the different metal styles that we were trying to cover and he captured everything we listed. He was professional and he really put his time into ensuring everything was exactly how we had been practicing it.”
On the new album, “When we formed in the middle of 2019, we individually had taken some time off from the metal industry. We wanted to create some music quickly so we went in and made an EP that was really rough around the edges. We hadn’t taken the time to become comfortable with each other, but we wanted something to show so we could get gigs. Over a year later, we’ve become much more in sync with each other and have perfected the type of metal we want to make.
Death Pig continues, "For me, this album is a mix-tape to all the different genres I love. When I listen to music at home, I like to hit that random button. I'll get a black metal track, then a punk track, then a thrash band, and so on. I think when you switch up the styles, it makes each of them pop more than just listening to an album of just one thing. I think all of our songs have our signature Pigs sound and sensibility, but I'll follow a good song wherever the riffs and lyrics may lead me and not worry about sticking to one metal style."

Decades after forming the Saint Louis thrash titan Cicatrix, guitarists Shawn Fink and Bill Dierker reunited in 2019 under the moniker Feed the Corpses to the Pigs (FTCTTP) to push their distinctive brand of extreme music. Adding grindcore/powerviolence veteran Eli Perea (Cambodian Death Squad) and death metal veteran Lucas Boran (Graveworks), Feed the Corpses to the Pigs have quickly become the top of the ticket in the New Mexico metal scene. Hailing from Albuquerque and featuring a raucous live show that combines dark humor and thrown body parts, Feed the Corpses to the Pigs brings the slaughterhouse to the stage. When they are not playing, you will find the band frequenting local and national shows where they are usually discussing their love of metal, punk, and horror movies over local craft beers.
