Description

HEATHEN SKULLS & SOUNDWORKS TOURING present

PIG DESTROYER
 
In PERTH for one show only!

Virginia's extreme sound nihilists PIG DESTROYER deliver savage grindcore that is both intentionally confrontational and thoroughly pummeling. PIG DESTROYER formed in 1997, when vocalist J.R. Hayes and guitarist Scott Hull decided to unite in their efforts to create utterly destructive grindcore. The trio began rehearsing and immediately found that their common musical interests produced intelligent and incendiary music. Derived from a non-musical source as extreme as the band's sound, PIG DESTROYER's easily-identifiable logo took form when the emblem from the infamous Answer Me! magazine was disassembled and rearranged.

PIG DESTROYERs latest album 'Phantom Limb' has been released and furthers the enigmatic band's nihilistic, shock and awe attack. With it, PIG DESTROYER boil metal down to its muscle, sinew, and bone - razor-sharp guitar, percussive pummeling, and a lone, stark howl - and use them to commit a vicious assault. The lyrics paint loathsome, frightening images of pitch-black self-hatred and the frailty of the human experience. With 'Phantom Limb', PIG DESTROYER provides a musical manifestation of the violent experience of the human animal, and cements their already legendary status.
