Grindcore is what happens when hardcore punks start listening to thrash and decide to slam both together and go faster. It’s extreme, uncompromising and sometimes overwhelming. Pig Destroyer are all of these things and more.

Their third album ‘Terrifyer’ is often heralded as a landmark metal album. Many say it’s one of the most important grindcore albums ever written, whilst OG grindcore fans think it’s just not dirty enough.

Spoiler alert: we agree with the former.

We discuss the genre’s origins, touch on subgenres, dive into the various projects of Scott Hull and give Pig Destroyer’s discography a once over. We also touch upon J.R Hayes’ brilliant lyrics and Scott Hull’s exceptional playing.
