Pugtopsy's ‘Snorts of Sorrow’ arrived on April 1 and we naturally assumed it was a prank but no, the new Pugtopsy single can be found on iTunes, and a brand new shirt is available on Merchnow, with proceeds going toward Neuterhead.
‘Snorts of Sorrow’ is described as “a track to awaken the wet-nosed juggernaut in you”, and on first listen you’d be hard-pressed to hear the difference between the canine vocals and regular human extreme metal fare. On further listening, there is a bit of Timmy and the Lords of the Underworld about it, but it’s a decent tune. We’re not sure how Pupcake (vocals) would take to a live show but ‘Snorts of Sorrow’ is worth a listen.
“With the new single, Pupcake is back to remind the metal community what brutality really sounds like. This raging hellhound hits hard with his guttural growls and snorts, backed by a powerhouse of sound. When asked about the main inspiration for the track, Pupcake responded with a frenzied “aaaaaahhhhhh huhnfuhnhuuunfrrrr blehhhhhhhhh,” which roughly translates to “I wrote this at a point in my life where I just wanted to run around and wreck sh*t. That’s what metal should be, right?” Harnessing this chaos is effortless in Pugtopsy’s live shows, evidenced by their huge circle pits. This comes as no surprise, as Pupcake can run around in circles with the best of them. “Snorts of Sorrow” gives you a taste of the grunts and growls to come.”
