Well, I might as well say it right away, Prehistoric Pigs ticks all the (good) checkboxes. First of all, it's a trio, assurance of an expression free of all superfluous. Then, its name immediately evokes something heavy. Moreover, the guys have opted for an instrumental formula and they come from Italy, a fertile land for bands in the genre (Ufomammut, Black Rainbows...).

Prehistoric Pigs offers a thick and rocky stoner which smells good smoke. Even if they are italians, the group wants on the other hand clearly American of blood, with these vast and desert, arid and heated expanses with the sun. In its veins flow at the same time Kyuss for these riffs fed with mescaline ('Meteor 700') and Karma To Burn for this direct and devastating energy ('Old Rats'). Short (it lasts less than forty minutes), "The Fourth Moon" is a simple album, without pretention, but not without insterest. Its exploration doesn't require any deep analysis or headache, it's a fuzz-filled gruff rock that goes to the essential, scraping a stony ground that simian creatures criss-cross.

Six titles follow one another with sweat and crash. The Tirelli brothers, Juri (guitar) and Jacopo (bass) make explode the Geiger counter, the feet frozen in the ground while the drummer Mattia Piani prints a groove, sometimes overexcited but most of the time haunting. When you are a fan of the genre, it seems difficult to resist the call of this disc whose beginning, 'C35', immediately clings to the brain like a mussel to a rock, providing as much the desire to drink beers, to cut the road or to break the cervicals by moving the head to the rhythm of these prehistoric eruptions. If the album carries a psychedelism nevertheless always greasy ('Crototon'), it is the big hairy riffs which guide it, which irrigate it through desolate and lunar landscapes, leaded and hostile.

No need for great speeches, "The Fourth Moon" offers a thick slice of shaggy and rough stoner which bathes in a B serie science-fiction.

ROCK - Without reaching the heights of their discography, "Resist" is a perfect ending for Midnight Oil, iconic band of the 80s and 90s.
HARDCORE SUPERSTAR: Abrakadabra (2022)
HARD ROCK - Successful return to the roots for Hardcore Superstar which finds the magic formula with this "Abrakadabra" in balance between anger and melody.
