PIG DESTROYER: 'Mt. Skull' Video Released


“Mt. Skull”, the new video from PIG DESTROYER, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band’s first album in six years, “Head Cage” (named after a grisly medieval torture device), which will be released on September 7 via Relapse Records.

The “Mt. Skull” clip was directed by Joe Stakun. The band states: “Did someone say banana peels?!?! We here at Pig Destroyer Industries are happy to announce our third video in conjunction with Joe Stakum, so get out your coffins and skate ‘Mt. Skull’!”

A visceral vortex of animalistic rage and extreme sonic brilliance, “Head Cage” is a true work of extreme metal art, that with the addition of a bass player, is hands down their most dynamic and heaviest recording to date. Across twelve tracks, PIG DESTROYER weave together harrowing tales of philosophical dualities, touching on mortality and depression, fear and violence, and the darkest complexities of the human condition, all told through the distorted lens of delightfully transgressive vocalist/lyricist JR Hayes. Musically, the band continues to push the boundaries of metal, grindcore, noise and punk, ramping up the intensity and leaving you bludgeoned in a state of utter shock, all in less than 33 minutes.

“Head Cage” was recorded by guitarist Scott Hull at Visceral Sound Studios, mixed and mastered by Will Putney (EXHUMED, EVERY TIME I DIE, BODY COUNT) and features striking artwork by Mark McCoy (FULL OF HELL, NOTHING) along with guest vocal appearances by AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED‘s Richard Johnson and Kat Katz plus FULL OF HELL‘s Dylan Walker.

The “Head Cage” cover artwork was created by Mark McCoy and can be seen below.
