Pig Destroyer - Phantom Limb LP
Almost three years in the making, Pig Destroyer's new album Phantom Limb furthers the enigmatic band's nihilistic, shock and awe attack. PD 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 provide a musical manifestation of the violent experience of the human animal, and cement their already legendary status.
