Ah, it’s good to be back. I’ve been itching to post for months but web access is non-existent when you’re rescuing endangered plants from the Mariana Trench. Oh of course I’m kidding. Who the hell would want to rescue anything?

Well I’m back from my hiatus of doing what I normally do in my day to day existence just minus my previous inconsistent postings, but I’ve been listening to something lately that I’m actually legitimately shocked I’m promoting.
I always build up to some lame reveal don’t I? Not like you couldn’t have figured it out by the picture anyways.

Pig Destroyer. Grindcore. What the hell am I doing listening to grindcore. The genre is alright but I never listen to it. Mostly because I can’t stand listening to it. Incessant blast beats, guitars that sound like they were amplified with laundry baskets and belch bucket vocals aren’t typically my thing but this record is really cool. You’ll have to go to their myspace if you really care to hear anything but it’s worth it. Also, don’t be fooled by the length of the two new tunes up there. For the most part the standard length on the record is, you know, a minute. What they’ve done to set themselves apart though is thankfully mix in solid double-kick grooves and what sound to my ears like some actual old-school riffage. The vocals are pretty ferocious too.

I've been dismissive of PD in the past, but this album has really got to me. They're closing in on Napalm Death territory now. The thing about most grindcore is that it doesn't really "rock." Phantom Limb rocks mightily.

Exactly. That pretty much sums up why i too keep returning to it.
