New Pig Destroyer album in the works


The lads in Pig Destroyer have entered Omega Studios (BAD BRAINS) in Rockville, MD to begin recording their new full-length album, titled “Phantom Limb”. The follow-up to 2004’s “Terrifyer” will feature 14 all-new songs from the heralded grindcore troupe and artwork by John Baizley (BARONESS, TORCHE). Advance songtitles include: “Cemetery Road”, “Rotten Yellow”, “Jupiter’s Eye”, HeathenTemple” and “The Machete Twins”.

Pig Destroyer vocalist JR Hayes says: “We’re recording to two-inch analog tape, which is really exciting. The drums sound HUGE, and the guitar tones are really nasty and aggressive. Brian‘s been on top of his game all year, busting out easily the fastest blast beats I’ve ever seen him play. As usual, Scott‘s written a whole arsenal of scalding riffs, but I feel like he really outdid himself with the arrangements on this record. The songs feel great and we’ve been having a load of fun playing them for the last five months. It’s the 14 most deranged metal songs we could make up, so get ready to sink your f*cking teeth in.”

Guitarist Scott Hull also added: “We’re excited about ‘Phantom Limb’ because it all seems to be coming together in a much different way than our past discs. We set the date for the studio, THEN we fired up the muse to write the material. The process has became much faster, more focused, and with all the energy intact and sharpened. It has also been a hugely positive experience to be able to just be the guitarist, rather than the guy behind the button as well. Just wait until you hear it.”
