Album Review

A frenzied testament to guitar-based violence, Pig Destroyer once again set about the task of decimating pretty much everything that stands before them on their fifth album, Book Burner. Combining thrash technicality with grindcore brutality, the band deliver their musical salvos with razor-sharp precision, allowing each gloriously destructive riff to come through crystal clear rather than getting lost in the pummeling drums stampede (delivered courtesy of Misery Index drummer Adam Jarvis). This kind of clarity sets Pig Destroyer apart from other grind bands, giving listeners the opportunity to not just feel the bottomless wells of aggression and unfiltered anger that Pig Destroyer channel into their music, but to actually hear and appreciate how technical they are. As far as metal albums go, Book Burner is about as raw as it gets. This is skull-crushing, no-frills metal that doesn't rely on studio wizardry or pedal fiddling to convey its intentions. If you're looking for depth and escapism, there are plenty of albums out there for you to dive into and explore, but if volume and intensity are what you seek, Pig Destroyer have just the punch in the face you've been looking for.

has a good point.


What can I say about this album? Ive been a Pig Destroyer fan for a long time. I was very excited for this album. Then I heard it. I was let down by track 3. Then the trend continued. The lyrics are uninspired. The guitar tone is weak.The drums are way too triggerd. This also j.r.'s worst vocal performance. There are some good tracks on here. But not enough to redeem this album.


Formed: 1997 in Washington D.C.

Genre: Metal

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Washington, D.C.'s Pig Destroyer combine hardcore with the heaviest of heavy metal, creating one of the most powerful and explosive metallic hybrids to be heard in quite some time. Rising from the ashes of an earlier band, Treblinka, Pig Destroyer were formed at the end of 1997, playing their first show at American University in Washington, D.C. Further shows in Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York City successfully spread the Pig Destroyer gospel to East Coast metalheads, soon followed by a demo...
