Warpig - s/t 1970

The eponymous debut album of Canadian hard rock band Warpig, was released in 1970 on local indie label Fonthill Records. Blabbermouth.net has referred to the bands lone studio album as "an early masterwork of psychedelic proto-metal." Later, London picked it up for re-release. It was also re-issued in 2006 on Relapse, and then Creation records in 2009. Before forming Warpig in 1968, namd members Rick Donmoyer, Dana Snitch, Terry Hook, and Terry Brett had played in a number of other Canadian bands such as Mass Destruction, Wot, and the Kingbees.
The London re-issue featured alternate cover art and two re-recorded tracks, both recorded by Terry Brown, producer of Canada's Rush. Warpig disbanded between '74 and '75 but reunited in 2004 for a reunion when their album began demanding high prices on ebay.
