The band spoofed 30-second thrash songs as well as the under current nazi movement. In 1984 the Pigs released their seceond 7" EP, this time on their new Songs of Sin label. Evil Stalks the Innocent was recorded live at an outdoor anarchist festival, and saw the beginnings of the death metal spoofing by the band. Lots of Hail Satan's etc. on this one, with a new guitar player, Mike Morbey, to boot. By the end of 1984, Morbey and Cutterrick were gone, and out of desperation Grave and Ripthroat located neighborhood metal boys Steve Bertrand, an exceptionally gifted guitar player, and the metal double bass drumming of Pete Clarke.
Inner musical direction clashes between Grave and Bertrand and Clarke found Keith fired from his own band by the summer of 1985. The band in the meantime appeared on the Mystic Records Let's Die compliation from the Songs of Sin demo Grave recorded with the band before his departure. With a new bass replacement, Dave Flannerty, the band re-recorded four songs off the Songs of Sin demo along with two new tunes. These six songs were released by Combat Records in 1987 on their Bootcamp 12" EP series. Unfortunately, that was the band's last release while the band was still operating.
By '88 the band was finished. Posthumous releases include an appearance on the 1984 the Fourth compliation LP in 1990 - the restored original Songs of Sin entire LP that was released by Chicago's Walkthrufyre label, and the Retch Records UK White Pigs/Sanity Assassins split CD Dead Man's Hand that featured unreleased songs from the band's last '88 demo, plus the Mystic Super Seven-Hit Bonanza 7" EP.
