Having previously discussed Pig Destroyer’s guitarist, Scott Hull, I thought I’d delve into their latest LP, Phantom Limb, what with its cover’s love of boobs, skulls, and the suggestion of vaginal folliculation, aka “bush”….
It’s a great fucking death/grind album. And it’s not even their best (I prefer Prowler in the Yard and Terrifyer).
Ultra high-gain guitar tone (somewhat unusual for grind, or for that matter pretty much anything outside thrash), super-short, punkish running times, yet with complex arrangements therein… and somehow managing to be worth re-visiting. Pure, articulate fury.
My faves are “Heathen Temple” and “4th Degree Burns,” but they’re all good.
