I mean. It's pretty decent. I was hoping for it to sound more like the octagonal stairway, like. More grind. But the grind in here is completely absent. I don't know. Maybe it'll grow on me like book burner.
That production is fucking chunky though, I'm loving that in particular.
Digging: Death Grips - Year of the Snitch
Not really feeling it at all.
Digging: The Besnard Lakes - The Besnard Lakes Are the Dark Horse
Where. Is. The. Grind.
Digging: Trophy Eyes - Chemical Miracle
straight up awful.
J.R. vocals sound completely shot.
Digging: Rolo Tomassi - Grievances
Meh, not great. Too bad, too. Just got into these guys hard recently.
Digging: Burial Invocation - Rituals of the Grotesque
stop making music
yea this was generic trash, band should have retired after Phantom Limb..
The sample guy is annoying in interviews too.
Digging: Morbus Chron - Sweven
Yeah... poor JR’s vox sound shot in this. I do dig the riffs and production tho
oh and fix the news title. it says steam currently.
Vox are super disappointing.
Also it says "steaming" in the article itself.
Maybe he was implying this is a steaming pile lol
It was decent, but I expected more
Woah, this sounds nothing like Pig Destroyer. I had to check and make sure I was actually listening to the right band
It does sound a lot more generic than their classic stuff if im honest
They destroyed all they could with their first couple of albums.
I mean Book Burner did come out 6 years ago. Can’t imagine how shredded JR’s vocal cords are after all these years.
lmao my bad
nothing terrifying here, lets go everybody
This is so soft I can imagine Drake rapping over it
JR's vocals sounded weak even on Book Burner so I guess it shouldn't be a huge surprise that his vocals have gotten even worse but man, he used to be an animal
Also, I agree 100% Xing. JR during the Terrifyer/Prowler days was arguably the greatest lyricist/vocalist in grind.
Yowza. This band peaked with Prowler. The guest vocals are really throwing me off, but JR sounds pretty terrible (which is sad). Needs more grind.
This legit sounds like just awful metalcore now.
Last Pig Destroyer album I listened to was Prowler in the Yard.. this was unexpected.
Digging: Prisoner - Beyond the Infinite
Do yourself a favor and also listen to Terrifyer (+Natasha)
And Phantom Limb but stop after that.
where's the grind 
I guess I'm part of the minority who really liked Book Burner, even if it wasn't their best, it still sounded like PD and went pretty hard. This is pretty bad though...
Book Burner is good.
yikes, thats a bad song
Band is completely irrelevant which makes the stark change in sound pretty refreshing. Song wasn’t all that great but it was really fun and rollicking.
should be shorter tbh
Digging: Minoru Muraoka - Bamboo
"Band is completely irrelevant"
Band is one of the most revered in all of grind. which is probably why this has fallen under expectations and is disappointing to most people
This isnt fun or rollicking. This is average metalcore, and coming from legends like these guys it deserves a below average rating.
wheres the blastttsstsstsstss
Digging: Pale - EP
These guys are absolute fucking legends but boy am I disappointed in this song. Hope the rest of the album is better
this might be one of the 'soft' songs on the album, i need to hear more before i jump to conclusions
Wow... Going back and listening to that legendary live video of them performing Forgotten Child I can see why JR sounds like this now.
God damn it this is so disappointing
in a word... gay.
It doesn't sound bad at all, it's just meh. Ya'll are trippin
aaah i'd forgotten about that live vid. No mic and still screams louder than the band aha.
yeah that shit is legendary but you shouldn't be surprised if he lost his voice now
I like this. I never was a pig destroyer fan though.
Yeah zaruyache that might be the most badass moment in history... so underrated.
Songs growing on me a lil bit but still not impressed.
I don't hate this but why do I keep expecting Phil Anselmo to jump in on vocals?
Eh I can take it or leave it. I'm sure the new album is a 3 at best.
Digging: Vein - Errorzone
disappointing. blows just as hard as the album art
I'm seeing Pig Destroyer live in September so I reeeeaaalllly hope the rest of the songs are better than this.
Kompys! So am I.
Nice, Crucial Fest right? I'm really excited, this year's lineup looks awesome.
Yeah, man. I forget you're in the area. I've hardly been interested in going before, but the change in venue and this much-improved lineup is too good to miss. I can't wait.
I went last year for Baroness and Red Fang, it was a great time.
I don't know Red Fang. Used to dig Baroness a lot.
jam red fang's Prehistoric Dog and watch the vid, it's a b a n g e r
the song kinda sucks, but they have a funny ass wicker man shirt on Relapse
man, i've been jamming Prowler In The Yard and Terrifyer a bunch recently and this just aint even remotely it.
cool jam tho
Kinda sad to see them like this tbh. They sound like themselves watered down to hell and back vs actually sounding new and inspired.
