Pig Destroyer/The Black Dahlia Murder Split To Be Released?

Well, here's something I didn't expect to hear. The fine folks at have posted that a split between grindcore gods Pig Destroyer, and melodic death metal band The Black Dahlia Murder is rumored to be released this year. Apparently this split has been in the works for quite a while now, and the recordings have been finished. Both bands are covering old punk songs, so sadly, no new material from PxDx on here. Honestly, this pairing is pretty darn random if you ask me, but any Pig Destroyer is good Pig Destroyer, so yeah, I hope this gets released. No word yet on format or what label is involved, this is still in the "rumor stages".  

In the mean time, keep bugging the Piggy dudes to release that new album already!!



  1. that does seem like an odd pairing. i guess it will be worth buying it for one side.

  2. I hate that other band, but the cover they did of black flag was almost passable.

  3. This kinda solidifies for me what Mr. Chang said about Pig Destroyer not being a grind band.
    I don't know anyone who likes Black Daliah Murder, but I'm assuming they wouldn't give a fuck about Pig Destroyer (and vice versa). And lastly, who gives a shit about covers? The pig Destroyer/Isis was covers too, which pissed me off. I'm guessing Pig Destroyer covers Circle Jerks and Back Daliah whatever covers The Ramones. Neither of them should touch Dead Kennedys, but if its Pig Destroyer I'll let it slide.

  4. j.r. did wear a DK shirt just about every time i saw them play.
