If you like your extreme metal teaming with scorching riffs (that are influenced equally by death metal, hardcore, and thrash), merciless blast beats, simple, moshable hardcore breakdowns, and some of the most brutal and atonal vocals this side of Barney Greenway, then you definitely came to the right place. Brevity is also practiced here with expertise, as P.D. tear through these nineteen tracks in just under thirty-two minutes. And they fly through the first nine songs in just ten minutes.Read more ›
Of course where Pig Destroyer earns their money are within the ever-expanding confines of Scott Hull's legendary riff collection. Quite simply, it doesn't get a lot better in the heavy metal riff department than this. I'm consistently amazed by how excellent his arrangements are and how he manages to use 15 riffs in a two minute song and somehow make them all stand out.Read more ›
I hesitated at first buying any of their music because there is a huge number of terrible metalcore and screamo bands out there, the majority of which can't write a decent song, can't carry a tune in a bucket and can't play anything that sounds like a recognizable hook or riff. It's just downtuned guitars, going from whatever note they've tuned down to, D or C and going up one half note and back and calling it a riff. Pig Destroyer understand that just sheer cacophony for its own sake doesn't cut it. They play with all the subtlety of an F5 tornado in your bathroom, but play notes you can actually latch on to.
I get hints of early hardcore, as I said earlier and just enough death mixed in to give the songs structure. Other than that, this 32 minute blast is enough to create sink holes out in your yard while it's playing. Songs are short and come and go as fast as they start. It's a whirlwind, unforgiving and perpetual. One has to read the lyrics to find out what the songs are about. Unfortunately, I didn't notice there was an expanded edition to this Cd. However, given the intensity of "Book Burner", brevity is wisely used before the attack becomes monotonous noise. It's about as good as modern grindcore can be.

Love this album! Classic Pig Destroyer sounds great on vinylPublished 14 months ago by Ben Finkelstein
This album was equally as frightening but not nearly as intelligent as 'Phantom Limb' was. Overall, it sounds kind of monotonous in comparison... Read morePublished 22 months ago by Ryan M.
Pig Destroyer is an incredibly good grind core band. On this album, they branch out a bit more into territories they haven't done so before. Read morePublished on May 15, 2014 by Shathadute
