Grindcore masters PIG DESTROYER recently announced plans to release a two song doom EP entitled Mass & Volume. Previously available for a limited time as a digital only release with all of the proceeds going to the family of former Relapse Records employee Pat Egan, who tragically passed away last year, this cult release will now be available on physical formats for the first time ever.
PIG DESTROYER now present the full stream of the monolithic EP. Listen to Mass & Volume in its entirety below:
Written and recorded during the final hours of the sessions for 2007’s Phantom Limb LP, Mass & Volume finds PIG DESTROYER’s typically break neck speed virtually come to a grinding halt with two epic songs of crushing doom as Chris penned in his review “The two tracks on this EP are feedback-drenched spacious doom, but with less emphasis on the experimental ambience that you got with Natasha. And as the Arik Roper penned foggy green artwork depicting the requisite goat/demon/wizard hybrid suggests, this is Pig Destroyer’s stoner doom release”, the album will be available on October 14th.
