PIG DESTROYER Share “The Torture Fields” Drum Playthrough Video; Head Cage Album Out Now
September 7, 2018, 12 days ago
Pig Destroyer's highly anticipated sixth studio album Head Cage is out now on CD/LP/CS/Digital. Additionally, to celebrate release day, Pig Destroyer drummer Adam Jarvis shares the official playthrough video for "The Torture Field" with Vic Firth. The video was mixed by Aaron Smith and engineered & edited by Alex Rudinger (Good Tiger).
Physical order packages of Head Cage are available via Relapse.com here.
A visceral vortex of animalistic rage and extreme sonic brilliance, Head Cage is a true work of extreme metal art, that with the addition of a bass player, is hands down their most dynamic and heaviest recording to date. Across twelve tracks, Pig Destroyer weave together harrowing tales of philosophical dualities, touching on mortality and depression, fear and violence, and the darkest complexities of the human condition, all told through the distorted lens of delightfully transgressive vocalist/lyricist JR Hayes. Musically, the band continues to push the boundaries of metal, grindcore, noise and punk, ramping up the intensity and leaving you bludgeoned in a state of utter shock, all in less than 33 minutes.
Head Cage was recorded by guitarist Scott Hull at Visceral Sound Studios, mixed and mastered by Will Putney (Exhumed, Every Time I Die, Body Count) and features striking artwork by Mark McCoy (Full of Hell, Nothing) along with guest vocal appearances by Agoraphobic Nosebleed's Richard Johnson and Kat Katz plus Full Of Hell's Dylan Walker.
