Natasha 37:35
been lonesome two years since she disappeared I'm at the park where she was last seen a vast green clearing wrapped up in maple trees spilling the morning rain from their leaves I used to walk here with a girl seventeen at the time mistress of seventeen smiles sublime with flaming locks of red in autumn and burning locks of orange in the summertime we were solemn and awkward that last night together she laid by my side staring into starless skies black as fallen angel feathers I stared into the forest pretending not to see the hangmen she was hiding in her eyes of serpent green she said there was another I refused to believe her I'd thought we'd kiss till our tongues tied together all my loving memories became scenes of frenzied slaughter my hands became cruel talons as they moved to destroy her her neck broke like a toy in a careless child's grip my tears rained down into dead eyes and splashed upon her lifeless lips I put her in the ground like a flower here I am standing in that same spot today where my angel's empty shell last laid and as my tears began to well up once more I see a path into the tree line that I'd never seen before I follow it down into a ravine find a hole in the earth framed in the roots of a birch tree subtle echoes of her voice speaking words I've never heard but the way she hissed her "s's" it just had to be her I smell honeysuckle then opium two of her signature scents I pull aside all the thistles and vines and mesmerized I make my descent as I crawl further inside the light slowly dies and the dirt begins to feel like her skin I tremble as I drag my fingers down the walls caressing her sweet flesh again I'm sliding down trying so hard not to fall slipping on the blood that's seeping from the walls then suddenly I'm surrounded by a thousand of her eyes bathing the tunnel in a strange green light the eyes show me pictures like ghostly television screens all her thrashing final struggles and her ravaged corpse serene the tunnel is closing behind me pressing me further and further down I'm being swallowed by her earth and consumed by her ground the end is moving into sight I gasp and I scream as I see her lovely mouth five times the size of me her lips curl into a grin around her crooked gnashing teeth I'm pulverized and devoured in the jaws of a girl seventeen

about

Pig Destroyer brings you the story of Natasha over one, 35+ minute track of slow-motion, punishing doom more akin to early Melvins or Godflesh than the muscular grind they are known for. Now available as its own limited edition digipack and LP, Natasha is yet another striking chapter in the illustrious Pig Destroyer canon

about

Pig Destroyer Alexandria, Virginia

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
