Virginia grindcore titans PIG DESTROYER have entered the studio to record their highly anticipated fifth full-length album. The band is producing and recording the CD at guitarist Scott Hull‘s Visceral Sound Studios in Alexandria, Virginia. The as-yet-untitled effort is described in a press release as “a return to a raw, primitive sound and will feature 19 songs of their signature misanthropic grind.” A late 2012 release via Relapse Records is expected.
For the recording of PIG DESTROYER‘s new album, the band has enlisted Adam Jarvis (MISERY INDEX) to lend his inhuman drumming skills to the aural hatred.
Commented Hull: “Tracking the drums happened this week and I’m honestly amazed at how Adam stepped up to the task of learning some challenging shit outside of his standard comfort zone. He came into the studio ready to destroy and destroy he did. And in the haze of long studio hours, he never settled for a bad take. He’s a real soldier. Adam has helped breathe new life into the band and we feel like we are starting fresh. Everyone here is excited for people to check out the new jams.”
In other news, PIG DESTROYER has been confirmed for the U.K.’s Damnation Festival, se to take place this November, with numerous other dates and festival appearances to be announced shortly.
PIG DESTROYER‘s last album, “Phantom Limb”, came out in 2007 via Relapse Records. The CD was recorded at Omega Studios (BAD BRAINS) in Rockville, Maryland under the helm of guitarist/producer Scott Hull.
