Pig Destroyer - Painter of Dead Girls Deluxe Edition
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. As a then-bassless power trio, these recordings capture 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 millineal year, leading up to PxDx 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 1990's 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', along with a truly bludgeoning cover of HELMET's 'In The Meantime' complimenting the existing DWARVES and STOOGES covers. With 19 blistering tracks in total all meticulously remastered by James Plotkn, this key piece of the PIG DESTROYER catalog looks and sounds better than ever.
The original album artwork by Chris Taylor has been extended into a beautiful gatefold jacket with added metallic silver highlights. Newly created extra artwork adornes the interior, along with recently unearthed lyrics to all the PIG DESTROYER songs found on "Painter of Dead Girls", printed in full for the first time ever. A double-sided photo collage innersleeve houses the vinyl, containing classic photos from the era surrounding these recordings.
Including a digital download of the full release, PIG DESTROYER's classic "Painter of Dead Girls" collection is finally done justice on this deluxe edition release.
