ROCKET REVIEW: PIG DESTROYER – “Head Cage” (CD)





American metal act, PIG DESTROYER, has released a new studio album in 2018 titled “Head Cage” and while it shifts away from their pure grindcore past it is absolutely jamming to the max, incorporating new elements to deliver an even heavier sound. This is a much more progressive and overall better produced effort, in my opinion, than anything they have released previously. The band first formed in 1997, after lead vocalist J.R. Hayes and Agoraphobic Nosebleed guitarist Scott Hull came together to craft the heaviest grindcore possible. Their ass kicking new album kicks off with the sinister as hell “Tunnel Under The Tracks”, followed by “Dark Train” and “Army Of Cops”.

The album production was handled by guitarist Scott Hull at Visceral Sound Studios, and the record was mixed and maste...

A vocal technique used in deathcore frequently is the pig-squeal, which is also used in other grind genres yet with a distinctively different sound to the technique. Bands such as Job For A Cowboy and Suicide Silence laid out the blueprints for the genre and spawned many other copycat bands...
