“Wallowing in melodically sludgtastic doses of Mastodon, C.O.C., and crossover crust, Hog’s debut EP ARCHETYPES is an aural concussion of the best kind. Produced by Kylesa’s Philip Cope, the four tracks on ARCHETYPES blend downtuned fuzzy dirges with galloping metal riffage for a Metallica meets Crowbar collision of blunt force goodness. The four tunes on ARCHETYPES are all obtusely heavy tracks, with roots in the noisy, post-doom sound of bands like Kylesa, Howl, Black Tusk, etc, but Hog’s got a crazy knack for incorporating melody into such a dense formula. ARCHETYPES has the potential to be all things to all people. It’s doom enough to satisfy the beardos, metal enough to get some circle pit action going, and experimental enough to get the wallflowers interested. If any of the bands mentioned in this review tickle your fancy, then consider Hog a band that you’ll want to get more familiar with.”
