The Mighty Swine new single 'Two Graves' is being featured on Progstravaganza XlX http://www.progstravaganza.com/the-mighty-swine/
THE MIGHTY SWINE is the weird name of an ambitious musical adventure, a project leaded by bass player/Lead Singer Mike Skimmerhorn (ex SPIKE / CJSS / CHASTAIN). This freshly updated quatuor of veterans from Cincinnati is riding a very dynamic lane recently. The imminent release of their new album and the fact that they just begun an intensive touring schedule both whom should be in perfect concordance to help this band to reach a global recognition soon!

Though there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of originality, as their obvious influences are collaged throughout the project, but there’s some serious skill in this outfit and that’s the ink in their signature.
Donahue and Tong are solid, titanic shredders. The blend, compliment, and compound as a single unit, which is a skill most dual-axed acts don’t follow.
Skimmerhorn not only lets his fingers do the flying, but takes the helm as frontman, as well.
The Mighty Swine aren’t porkin’ around (yes, with a name like that, they deserve to be pun-ished), his part is undercooked, which I blame on the production. However, the few times he pulls through (yup, that’s another pun), most notably in the deviantly introspective, “Tomorrow,” and the punch in the throat, old-school “Empty Shell,” it’s like a tap on the vein.
Regardless of how the immensely tuxedo talented the outfit tries to hide under their old leather, the crown of glory on this project belongs to Rory Faciane. Tribal and daring, hard and evil, this man can play to splinter your ribcage. He’s a force to be reckoned with.
“Last Man Standing,” the first release and title track is clearly the “fuck you” of the project, very befitting to the album’s arsenic milkshake demeanor.
Overall, it’s a nice job here and well worth a place in your collection. They show just enough elegance to prove themselves, but it’s pretty clear that The Mighty Swine are not the “other white meat.”
