Claire Donner It is extremely nice of these classic grindcore speed freaks to bless us with this grave, rich, absorbing mood piece. I wish there were a lot more of this but I'll take what I can get. Favorite track: Mass & Volume.
VAST DEFERENS Pig Destroyer slow down and doom it up, flexing their tempo-dexterity like on "Natasha". I like 'em fast, though, so back into ""Book Burner" for me.

S810 I wish this is how all doom metal sounded. Ridiculously slow, heavy and raw, and dirty as fuck! Feels like dragging your dick through the mud then trying to clean it off with rough grit sandpaper. Favorite track: Mass & Volume.
Teasy thumbnail
Teasy Slooooow, so sloooooow and f**** HEAVY. Great tracks but I don't get it, why it costs 8 bucks for two songs. On the other hand it's soooo sloooow an f***** HEAVY! Favorite track: Red Tar.

'Mass & Volume' was written and recorded during the final day of the 'Phantom Limb' sessions with unexpected extra studio time and resources. In the following years, with 'Natasha' being released on its own and Brian no longer being in the band, Pig Destroyer's intentions of releasing 'Mass & Volume' basically evaporated. However, looking back now, 'Mass & Volume' serves as a great epilogue to that particular era of the band.

PIG DESTROYER boil metal down to its muscle, sinew, and bone - razor-sharp guitar, percussive pummeling, and a lone, stark howl - and use them to commit a vicious assault. The lyrics paint loathsome, frightening images of pitch-black self-hatred and the frailty of the human experience. These musical manifestations only serves to cement their already legendary status. ... more

Track Name: Mass & Volume
Time presses down
Harder than gravity
Just as relentlessly
Watch the clock
Fall a thousand stories
Still can't step out of harm's way
A reflection of light
A living illusion
A human without mass
A human without volume
Track Name: Red Tar
In the moment of truth
I stuck with the lie
Got lost in the smoke
Became a slave
To a weak mind

Need to kill a hawk
Need to steal some wings
Blood like red tar

Overdosed on cynicism
Swept under and drowned
Lured in by a siren
I ran my ship aground
Slash of talon
Glimpse of Venus
Tidal waves crashing down

Need to kill a hawk
Need to steal some wings

Grief crawls in the shadow of time
Try to keep in mind
It's all finite.
