Vinyl became more of a fetish these days. Not only for those into more extreme looks and the cover arts, but also for those that are drawn to the sound of a needle surfing through a record. Those subtle noises may improve the listening experience to those keen into listening to them. Most of those people who had that old sound fetish are more than pleased to see contemporary bands from different genres take interest in releasing those precious vinyl versions of albums that made impact on the digital world. So, here comes Pig Destroyer to take on the vinyl format for the pleasure of all.

Pig Destroyer, grindcore band by excellence, decided to take the challenge to convert their already rusty grind-ish meeting thrash sound from the digital world to the vinyl realms by re-issuing two of their more renowned albums. With the help of their label, Relapse Records, Pig Destroyer will release two deluxe colored vinyl for ‘Terrifyer’ and ‘Phantom Limb’. Both of these albums have long gone out of print which makes the expectations for this upcoming release something very rare. ‘Terrifyer’ was released in 2004 and it gave the band some serious recognition mostly by the first single ‘Gravedancer’ which was featured in the ‘Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland’ soundtrack which opened up the door for the band to be heard by a large quantity of skate enthusiasts. With ‘Phantom Limb’ the guys from Pig Destroyer were able to prove that they could not only keep up with the success of ‘Terrifyer’, but they were also incorporating more elements to their music to keep the feeling of the album fresh.

The reissue will contain four bonus songs, previously only available on the Japanese release of the album and never before pressed on vinyl! ‘Phantom Limb,’ the legendary, 21st-century extreme metal masterpiece, will also be reissued on vinyl for the first time in over 9 years along with two bonus songs from the Japanese release, also never before available on vinyl.[/blockquote]

Relapse Records have set the date for the release of these two masterpieces of grindcore for February 12th, but you can pre-order the limited edition at the label’s website. In the meantime, those that are looking to relive what it is to headbang your heads so fast and so hard that you literally have the feeling that your head went through a mild concussion, you can take the chance to go to Pig Destroyer’s concerts in the Netherlands and United States through the year.

¿Las Brujas crean Arte o el Arte crea Bujas? Conference

Art as a weapon to denounce and to canalise the anger generated through the years should be used to unite women against the concept of rivalry among themselves. A rivalry created centuries ago to create vulnerable women, not allowing them to gather in covens used as information and witchcraft systems for feminine revolution
