The first thing I said when I first bought and heard this album was "Oh My God" this album is totally incredible, Clever grindcore with magnificent lyrics, superb guitar riffs, wonderful drumming, clean production, a great cover (made by Paul Booth the tattoo artist), and o concept that most grindcore bands would like to have.

The first question that appears in most minds is ¿Where's the bass player? The answer is, Pig Destroyer has no bassist, but I assure you, the bass is not vital in this album, every single song is great and the lower parts are executed incredibly by the drums, so don't worry you won't notice that pig destroyer has no bass player at all because the album is wonderful the way it is.

36 minutes of grindcore music most times is annoying, well not in this case my friend, the music is hard, ultra fast, and violent, but it flows in a wonderful way, it's not annoying at all, and you can easily play "Prowler In The Yard" twice in a row without any complaints. The songs are attached to each other, and most times you can't notice when a song ends and the other one starts, but that's fine because this creates a great environment for the album, the last songs are the ones that are not attached to each other and for my taste those are the best ones.

The album starts with a short story of Jennifer licking another girl eyeballs (the album finishes with the ending of Jennifer's story as well) and then the concept begins with "Cheerleader Corpses" which is a short song with the best guitars on the album and awesome drumming, the best thing of this album is the vocal execution for sure, Hayes has an incredible grindcore voice and along the album he combines every vocal tone from ultra low growls to scratchy penetrating screams and so on.
Anyway, to highlight one particular song is very difficult, but, the moment of true bliss comes when "Piss Angel" starts, this song is just overwhelming, truly THE song on this album, it starts with some screaming and fast riffs, then there's a sudden Stop with a phone effect and then when a guy says "hello" the song starts with fury and this amazing phrase "I see you headless with me caressing your neck. My personal nightfall. An eclipse of the sunflowers…" this song is a great collage of weird images that is combined with incredible fast and violent music.

To close this review I just have one thing to say, BUY IT NOW OR DIE.
