Average Rating:

Hometown: Richmond, VA (USA)


Virginia‚??s extreme sound nihilists PIG DESTROYER deliver savage grindcore that is both intentionally confrontational and thoroughly pummeling. PIG DESTROYER formed in 1997, when vocalist J.R. Hayes, guitarist Scott Hull and drummer John Evans decided to unite in their efforts to bring utterly destructive grindcore to their local Virginia area...and beyond. The trio began rehearsing and immediately found that their common musical interests produced intelligent and incendiary music.
