It’s not even officially released yet and many are touting Pig Destroyer‘s Book Burner as one of the year’s best releases. I’m inclined to agree; the group’s groove-oriented death grind style hit me in all the right places. It’s hard for grind to be catchy, but Pig Destroyer have always seemed to manage it through driving riffs and poetic lyrical work.
Now you can hear Book Burner in its entirety over at the always lovely NPR. I’m sure the Republicans who want NPR’s funding cut are super stoked that the publicly funded radio station gives special highlight to a band whose name is synonymous with “cop killer.” It’s delicious and I love it. Book Burner is out October 23rd on Relapse Records.
