The extreme music world is about to get a much needed cinderblock to the face as the mighty Pig Destroyer has entered the studio to record a 5th full-length record and first album in over five years. The band is self-producing and recording the new album at guitarist Scott Hull's Visceral Sound Studios in Alexandria, VA.

According to a press release, the as-yet-untitled album is a "return to a raw, primitive sound and will feature 19 songs of Pig Destroyer' signature misanthropic grind." A late 2012 release is expected via Relapse Records.

This time around, Pig Destroyer has enlisted the help of Adam Jarvis (Misery Index) to lend inhuman drumming skills to the aural hatred. Now a full time member, Scott Hull commented on the addition of Adam:

"Tracking the drums happened this week and I'm honestly amazed at how Adam stepped up to the task of learning some challenging shit outside of his standard comfort zone. He came into the studio ready to destroy and destroy he did. And in the haze of long studio hours he never settled for a bad take. He's a real soldier. Adam has helped breathe new life into the band and we feel like we are starting fresh. Everyone here is excited for people to check out the new jams."

Additionally, Pig Destroyer has been confirmed for the UK's Damnation Festival this November with numerous other dates and festivals to be announced shortly.
