Obese – Pig Frenzy – The This
A heavy, groove filled stoner rock outfit hailing from Utrecht, The Netherlands. For fans of High on Fire, Goatsnake and Orange Goblin. OBESE released ‘Kali Yuga’ (2015) and ‘Anamnesis’ (2017) on Argonauta Records (Italy). Both received many positive reviews from international press. Playing lots of shows all over Europe has helped OBESE to get fans within as well as outside of The Netherlands, for example with two tours in 2015 and 2017 through Austria, Croatia, Italy, Slovenia, Czech Republic, France and Germany. Other feats in OBESE’s relatively short history are supports for Orange Goblin, Bongripper, Monolord, Crowbar, Dopethrone etc. The hard work over the years paid of by being asked to do a live performance on popular Dutch national radio station 3FM in April 2018.
Pig Frenzy are four lovers that got together in early 2018. Initially starting of with the ambition to write postpunk music, they wrote their first EP which turned out to be a mix of mainly (post)punk, garage and indie. Since the release of the EP they played many shows in The Netherlands and Belgium and got signed to the Rotterdam-based label SPAZZ records. Later during that year Pig Frenzy went on a tour to France, Spain and Portugal. Now they’ve released their second EP titled ‘HOGTIED’, in which they really discovered their sound. Expect the shows to be wild, unpredictable and above all mind-blowing.
