Pig Destroyer’s J.R. Hayes Talks To Headbanger's Ball On Podcast

When indie metal mag, Decibel, ranked Pig Destroyer’s Phantom Limb as the best disc of 2007 — above records by Dillinger Escape Plan, Down and Machine Head — it seemed like a bold move. But it wasn’t as audacious as the publication’s decision to emphasize its choice with a year-end cover story interview.
Most bands would sell their sisters’ souls to achieve such an endorsement, however Pig Destroyer are too concerned with staying true to themselves to worry about what other people think of them. While he was flattered by the attention, singer J.R. Hayes told us he hasn’t even taken the magazine out of the shrink-wrap, and can’t understand why the band is drawing praise from everyone from fanzines to major monthlies.
Hayes explains in the latest Headbangers Ball Blog Pig Destroyer podcast, Pig Destroyer would rather remain an underground entity than ever become popular.
Hayes discusses why he likes to be called a misogynist (even though he isn’t one), his struggle with depression and anxiety, why he hates shooting videos, how Pig Destroyer will never tour more than a few days at a time and the bitterness and hate that makes Phantom Limb so powerful.
