Grind legends Pig Destroyer have finished recording, at Omega Studios (BAD BRAINS) in Rockville, MD, the follow-up to 2004's Terrifyer. Phantom Limb was produced by guitarist/producer Scott Hull, and is to be released internationally on June 18th, and on June 12th in North America. Previews of the artwork for the album, which was done by John Baizley (BARONESS, TORCHE), can be viewed at the bands MySpace page, here.

As previously reported, vocalist JR Hayes had the following to say about Phantom Limb: "We're recording to two-inch analog tape, which is really exciting. The drums sound HUGE, and the guitar tones are really nasty and aggressive. Brian's been on top of his game all year, busting out easily the fastest blast beats I've ever seen him play. As usual, Scott's written a whole arsenal of scalding riffs, but I feel like he really outdid himself with the arrangements on this record. The songs feel great and we've been having a load of fun playing them for the last five months. It's the 14 most deranged metal songs we could make up, so get ready to sink your f*cking teeth in."

The finalised tracklisting for Phantom Limb is as follows:

01. Rotten Yellow
02. Jupiter's Eye
03. Deathtripper
04. Thought Crime Spree
05. Cemetery Road
06. Lesser Animal
07. Phantom Limb
08. Loathsome
09. Heathen Temple
10. Fourth Degree Burns
11. Alexandria
12. Girl In The Slayer Jacket
13. Waist Deep In Ash
14. The Machette Twins

The titles aren't quite so off the wall as previously...

Carrion Fairy, Piss Angel, Restraining Order Blues, Trojan Whore, Evacuating Heaven and Tickets to the Car crash are personal favorites in terms of titles....Nothing quite so over the top here, though I doubt it's cause for alarm.

My hope is JR hayes mixes his hardcore roars on Prowler in the Yard with the psychotic shrills from Terrifyer album evenly. The more diverse his delivery the better.
