Prepare for a huge slab of ear-splitting leads, sonic riffs, filthy bass lines, whiskey-drenched vocals and sweet southern grooves, as Hampshire wrecking ball XII Boar (pronounced Twelve Boar) return this summer with their sophomore album Beyond The Valley Of The Triclops.
Recorded at Skyhammer Studio with renowned producer Chris Fielding (Conan, Electric Wizard, Winterfylleth) at the end of last year, Beyond The Valley of The Triclops sees XII Boar hitting new heights with a stronger, focused, no limits approach to songwriting. Having achieved huge critical acclaim with last year’s debut album Pitworthy, the band are already back and on point to be one of 2016’s strongest contenders!
Combining Motörhead’s swagger, Sabbath’s downtrodden doom and the swinging crunch of Corrosion Of Conformity, these Hampshire louts lay down a colossal slab of rock’n’roll-infused groove metal, alongside a wild live show to fuel the greatest of parties. With their debut album Pitworthy released in March 2015, XII Boar are rapidly becoming unstoppable. With a return to Bloodstock, a film licensing deal with Troma Films editor turned cult icon Dylan Greenberg and, of course, the release of their sophomore record, Beyond The Valley Of The Triclops, XII Boar’s 2016 is going to be ear-shatteringly loud!
Wrapped up in stunning, booty-tastic artwork envisaged by quasi-legendary artist James Hayball this is pure rock and roll for the heavier generation.
