“Sweet Fancy Moses!” is what our very own Dan “Dormition” Arena said as he shared the above photo from Pig Destroyer‘s Facebook page to the rest of us in the HBIH staff group, and I agree with his exclamation. After long wait, there might finally be some movement on the Pig Destroyer front, and shortly after seeing the photo, the following press release graces my inbox:
The extreme music world is about to get a much needed cinderblock to the face as the mighty PIG DESTROYER has entered the studio to record their highly anticipated 5th full-length record and first album in over five years! The band is self-producing and recording the new album at guitarist Scott Hull’s Visceral Sound Studios in Alexandria, VA. The as-of-yet-titled album is a return to a raw, primitive sound and will feature 19 songs of their signature misanthropic grind. A late 2012 release is expected via Relapse Records.
This time around, PIG DESTROYER have enlisted the help of Adam Jarvis (MISERY INDEX) to lend inhuman drumming skills to the aural hatred. Now a full time member, Scott Hull commented on the addition of Adam:
“Tracking the drums happened this week and I’m honestly amazed at how Adam stepped up to the task of learning some challenging shit outside of his standard comfort zone. He came into the studio ready to destroy and destroy he did. And in the haze of long studio hours he never settled for a bad take. He’s a real soldier. Adam has helped breathe new life into the band and we feel like we are starting fresh. Everyone here is excited for people to check out the new jams.”
So, if you’re still in awe and it hasn’t sank in yet:
WE’RE GETTING NEW PIG DESTROYER THIS YEAR, BITCHES.
More info when we get it!
