Pig Destroyer- "Burning Palm"

New MusicadminComment

Virginia’s grind veterans Pig Destroyer are firing on all cylinders after almost five years of relative silence. “Burning Palm” is the first song released for the excellent Book Burner, which comes out October 22nd on Relapse Records. In many ways, it’s an excellent preview of what’s to be expected from the rest of Book Burner, as the song is an almost equal combination of grindcore, death metal, and crossover thrash. Vocalist J.R. Hayes still sounds incredibly pissed off, Scott Hull is consistently shitting out classic, speedy riffs, and new drummer Adam Jarvis reins in the chaos with a relentlessly tight performance. Rest assured, it’s the same old Pig Destroyer, but still leaves most of their grinding peers in the dust.
