Pig Destroyer
Phantom Limb

First, a big effin’ “eff you” to Relapse for not including the lyrics with this promo. True, most extreme music lyrics are patent mush, but JR Hayes’ poetry is an essential part of the PD experience. Anyhoo…

I’ve always wondered how some (very few) bands can actually recreate and express emotion in their songs while others (most) simply raise a racket. I suppose it doesn’t really matter as long as we benefit. Or enjoy. Or get torn a shiny new one. The thrash-grind absofuckinglute bear traps that Pig Destroyer are wielding in ’07 will send you on a real-time mainline into their hate, regret, and nauseating dread. Think of the best bands ever – the ones that really matter – and you’re there. This band has always been awesome, but Phantom Limb is beyond awesome, it’s actually important. It hurts.

So, how do they do it? Dunno and don’t care.

What matters is that this is real. This is the hard core. This is your album of the year, fuckers.

Choke on it.
