Pig Destroyer are an acquired taste. I’m not going to lie, the first time I heard their 2001 album “Prowler in the Yard” I had a headache for 3 days. But over time I’ve grown to love them. A dedication they’ve decided to reward with playing Brooklyn for the first time in I don’t know how many years just 2 weeks after I move half way across the country. Thanks guys.
Their new album is “Book Burner” and it will melt your face. The first video of the EP is for the track “The Diplomat” and it’s kind of a mix between “Rise of the Planet of the Pages” and “Sin City”. There’s a message in there I’m sure but to be honest I don’t know what it is. Maybe something to do with monkeys being monsters from another planet who want to kill us all? Let’s go with that.
