PIG DESTROYER - Painter Of Dead Girls DELUXE EDITION LP
Finally available on vinyl after over a decade of unavailability, the deluxe edition of Painter of Dead Girls showcases grind legends Pig Destroyer at their most primal. Recorded by a then-bassless power trio, this album captures the powerful and varied sounds of an envelope-pushing, borderline feral outfit behind the instruments as well as control panel.
The first half of this collection album was initially tracked as an equipment burn-in test during the millennial year, leading up to Pig Destroyer recording their seminal Prowler in the Yard full-length. The secondary bulk of the material initially yielded their most sonically powerful recordings at the time, recorded in the late 1990s at Oblivion Studios (Pg.99, Enemy Soil, etc.).
Rounding out this expanded edition of Painter of Dead Girls is the long-lost track “Delusional Supremacy 2K,” a raw mosh basement live recording of “Rejection Fetish,” and a truly bludgeoning cover of Helmet’s “In the Meantime” complementing the existing Dwarves and Stooges covers. With nineteen blistering tracks in total, all meticulously remastered by James Plotkin, this key piece of the Pig Destroyer catalog looks and sounds better than ever.
The original cover work by Chris Taylor has been extended into a beautiful gatefold jacket with added metallic silver highlights. Newly created art adorns the interior, along with recently unearthed lyrics to all the Pig Destroyer songs on Painter of Dead Girls, printed in full for the first time ever. A double-sided photo collage inner-sleeve houses the vinyl, containing classic photos from the era surrounding these recordings.
