AUDIO: Pillaging Villagers – “Pillaging Villagers”
Thrash-folk metal band Pillaging Villagers are out with their eponymous debut album today. Embark on a pitchfork-wielding, kingdom-conquering, madman-defying, fire-blazing medieval adventure with this band’s unique blend of crossover thrash and Celtic-tinged metal. There’s heavy antifascist themes from song to song, which certainly can be vitalized in a modern context. The tracks are chronologically sequenced from the tales of corruption and peasantry to the seizing of the means of production by the workers to them ultimately emerging victorious. It’s a proletariat epic from Pillaging Villagers.
