New Pig Destroyer album out on Tuesday!

Well, I'm excited. The new Pig Destroyer album is out tomorrow. They're one of the few bands that I will run out and buy whatever they release as soon as possible. I also know that I'm the only frequenter of this website who likes this band. However, I thought some of you would get a kick out of this video I found on YouTube tonight...



If PD were on the soundtrack, that's the only way you'd ever catch me watching that movie.

P.S. It's not heavy by any means, but you all should check out the new one from Clutch, called 'From Beale Street to Oblivion' (a video for their first single from it is here). They've really gotten into a bluesy vibe, complete with a full-time Hammond organ, and harmonica. But they still rock it out.

As Bling's post proves, we have officially run out of good band names. As I scrolled down the blog, when Bling's headline came up, I actually thought it was a spoof, or humorous, etc. Nope. Dead serious. There's a band called Pig Destroyers. Some record label signed a band called Pig Destroyers. Some agent hangs out in bars and brags "Yep, I represent Pig Destroyers." Parents (at least 8 parents, I'm guessing), when asked what their sons (no big risk predicting they're all guys) are doing, answer "Oh, he's in Pig Destroyers." Creepy teenage girls fantasize about having sex with Pig Destroyers. Socially inept teenage boys dream about growing up and being as cool as Pig Destroyers.

The video does, however, prove once again that I am totally capable of being the lead singer for a metal band, because I, too, can scream atonally with poor diction that makes my lyrics impossible to understand.

Stay tuned for my post next week, where I will review the new band Prolapsed Rectum. Damn near killed 'em.

They used to be more political then they are now, and the name of their band was a sideways way of calling themselves 'Cop Killer'.

And I'll tell you what ... you don't review death / grind music, and I won't review your shitty dance music.

wtf?

Pig Destroyer is an awesome name for a heavy band, no different from 'Circle of Dead Children', 'Dying Fetus', and 'Pissing Razors'. It gets the point across, it tells prospective buyers that 'we are not indie rock'. Fuck you. Sometimes, when I'm feeling a little Tyler Durden-ish, I go to upscale Book stores with overpriced CD's and sneak those titles over into the Christian section.

And don't forget:

Cannibal Corpse
Agoraphobic Nosebleed
Decapitated
Napalm Death
Hatebreed
Acid Bath
Obituary
Slayer
Entombed
Deicide
Asphyx
Defleshed
Black Dahlia Murder

All are better than Dashboard Confessional, The Arcade Fire, or any of those other emo douchenozzles.

By the way, being a death / grind vocalist is actually harder than it sounds. Some of them aren't very good, true, but that can be said of any vocalist / singer who has a recording contract. But to be good at this type of vocal style, you have to learn how to do it day in, and day out, for at least 30 minutes at a time, without shredding your vocal chords into fajita meat. It also takes quite a bit of lung capacity. Not that any of you care; I'm just sayin'. It isn't something that just anyone can do, and do well on a consistent basis. That's all.

I could go on about how easy it would be for me to take a song someone else wrote, put a different dance beat behind it, and call myself a 'DJ'. I won't do that though, because that would be ignorant.
