Explosive. Manic. Melancholy. Devastating. The list of adjectives is endless when searching for a way to describe the 5-member outfit from deep in the heart of New Jersey's Pine Barrens, A Day of Pigs. One word that does not define the band, however, is ordinary.

In a musical era which has become nothing more than a parody of what it once was, where fashion takes precedence over function, ADOP strives for separation from the norm, and has thus far succeeded. In their less than 18 month existence, they have shared the limelight with everyone from DevilDriver and Bury Your Dead to E-Town Concrete and Artimus Pyledriver, a feat that speaks to the diverse audience the music reaches. It would normally be cliché to state that placing a "sounds-like" tag on A Day Of Pigs is difficult, but no more truer statement applies. An epic dose of intensity, volume and pulse-pounding riffage greets each set of ear canals that bear witness to ADOP's live show, and none goes unaffected by the ferocity of the event. It is easy to see that playing live means everything to the band.

Controlled chaos might be a phrase that is apt to describe the feeling experienced during a listen to their 4 song EP entitled "The Oath", released in early 2006. The band's vocalist, Kevin LeBlanc, has already received international acclaim for his extraordinary and disturbing tattoo work, and one need look no further than his additions to skin to understand the dark subject matter of his lyrics. A theme such as betrayal, loss, greed and apathy seethe underneath LeBlanc’s soul-wrenching howls and shrills, while the delivery of musical apocalypse behind him is handed out with pleasure.

The rest of the band brings with it decades of performing, touring, and recording experience; guitarist Steve Silberg logged extensive time with seminal New Jersey hardcore acts Another State of Mind and Smother, drummer Bill "Bixby" Belford was a member and integral contributor of other-worldly doom entrepreneurs Solace and Tow, and with our newest member T.J. on bass from the brutal Fat Kid Camp as well as Livid.

All though several member changes have set the band in whirlwinds of confusion, it has pushed them even higher and harder to succeed, if not on a major level, but on a personal level of pride in what seems to be the carnivorous beast called metal.

A Day of Pigs follows no man, seeks nothing from above, yet only wishes to trample under foot the masses as they march hand in hand over the falls.
