Parrot-fronted grindcore outfit Hatebeak (Pig Destroyer, The Index) have premiered a new track from their forthcoming album, The Number of the Beak, over at Noisey. The new track, titled “Pecking Crew”, rips out raw, angular and grinding riffs that are soaked in hellacious death metal nuances. Oh, and there’s an African Grey parrot screeching at you the entire time. Check out the quirky track after the break.
The Number of the Beak will be released this Friday, June 26, via Reptilian Records. Order yours here.
As promised, Maruta have unveiled another new track on this fine hump day. The track premiered today is titled “Erode” and it is a blistering badass of a track. While listening to this track, I found myself lost in the grinding madness. The only thing that could make this track better is if JR Hayes from Pig Destroyer guested on it. Wait. What? Maruta + Pig Destroyer? Holy shit! CRUSH! Continue reading →
Fulgora are a beast. Why? Possibly because the band shares members with both Pig Destroyer and Misery Index. The band will be releasing their new album Stratagem next month and they have released a new video for their track “Meridian.” I would call this a music video, but I classify music videos as videos in which the band appears, which Fulgora doesn’t in this video.
The video does however feature a lot of religious, anti-religious and religious oppression imagery and video. I would say that this video is somewhat NSFW. Just to be safe. Check out “Meridian” below. Continue reading →

Initially available as a limited digital download release fundraiser for the family of Relapse Records team member Pat Egan following his death in 2013, the two-track experimental doom Mass & Volume EP by innovative deathgrinders Pig Destroyer is now due for a one-time, never to be repressed CD/vinyl release according to news direct from the band and label this morning. Recorded in lieu of extra studio time during the band’s sessions on their 2007 LP Phantom Limb, Mass & Volume serves as a fine epilogue to the Bryan Harvey era of the band, marking his final contributions to the group since his tenure start on Pig Destroyer’s 1999 split with Gnob.
As if Pig Destroyer was heavy enough, the band have recruited their first bassist to give their ballistic music that extra crunch. Guitarist Scott Hall recently spoke with Terrorizer on the addition of bassist John Jarvis (cousin of drummer Adam Jarvis). Here are the highlights of the interview:
Adult Swim have premiered a new track from Pig Destroyer as a part of their annual Singles Programs. This year has featured the likes of Killer Mike and El-P, Marnie Stern and now Piggy-D. The new track is entitled “The Octagonal Stairway” and it rips pretty hard. It definitely feels like a Book Burner B-side. Head over to Adult Swim to check it out and download it.
Grindcore and baseball appear to go hand in hand. Who would have guessed? Riley Breckenridge of Thrice, Ian Miller and Jonathan Howell of Kowloon Walled City, and Mike Minnick of Curl UP & Die have announced their involvement in a new baseball themed grindcore project. The project has reportedly been dubbed Puig Destroyer after Yasiel Puig of the Los Angeles Dodgers and obviously good ol’ Pig Destroyer. Here is the official word from Riley himself:
