All of which exacerbates the cruel obscurity experienced by this exceptional album until its 2006 reissue by Relapse Records, which hardly corrected history's injustices, but at least accorded Warpig some belated recognition for their modest contributions to heavy metal's early-‘70s foundation.
Warpig biography Warpig's formation came the same as so many other rural Ontario bands of the mid 60's. Guitarist/singer Rick Donmoyer toiled the late 60's in a number of groups, including The Turbines, The Kingbees (later The Wot) and Mass Destruction. But by late '66 Donmore found himself looking for a new project, and hooked up with fellow Mass Destruction alumni Terry Brett on bass, Dana Snitch (keyboards/guitars) and drummer Terry Hook, all Woodstock natives. The album was full of raw power, with inspirational remnants from everything from the British Invasion to the surf sound, from Chet Atkins to Black Sabbath.
