For the first time in their 16-tear-old career, grindcore masters Pig Destroyer have a bassist in their line-up: John Jarvis, cousin of the band’s drummer Adam Jarvis. According to guitarist and founding member Scott Hull, “For many years we haven’t had a bass player or second guitarist because, as JR once put it; “mo people, mo problems”. But a band is a living organism. Change is good. New blood. New energy.”

As for John, he states “It’s an honor to be a part of Pig Destroyer. I’m looking forward to making new music with the guys, as well as adding some “low end” to the older material live. After being able to see every incarnation of the band live in the past, I can honestly say that the guys are at the top of their game.”

John will make his live debut with Pig Destroyer precisely today, October 27th, at the Housecore Film Festival curated by Phillip Anselmo in Austin, Texas.

Their latest full-length, “Book Burner”, was released last year, but in 2013 they’ve also released an EP titled “Mass & Volume” as part of a charity effort to benefit the family of recently deceased Relapse Records employee Pat Egen. And last month, the single “The Octagonal Stairway” saw the light of day as part of the 2013 Adult Swim Singles Series.

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 16th July 2012 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Austrian death metal outfit Belphegor have been confirmed to play their only UK show at Damnation Festival later this year. The band will be playing the Terrorizer Stage.

Belphegor’s Helmuth said: “We are looking forward to shredding the mighty land of NWOBHM, again. It’s always a pleasure and an intense ritualistic raid experience to bring our chaos sound to the UK. Hail Damnation! Hail Death!

Joining Belphegor on the Terrorizer Stage, as announced today by Damnation Festival, will be crust punk pioneers Extreme Noise Terror and British black metal unit Wodensthrone.

Wodensthrone guitarist/vocalist Rædwalh said: “Wodensthrone are very pleased to have been invited to play Damnation Festival; an event that we have seen grow from its inception in Manchester to one of the UK’s premier metal events. I fondly remember the early incarnations of the festival, so to see it grow to its current status is very encouraging. The already-confirmed lineup is extremely promising and for ourselves to be included in it is a humbling testament to this band’s perseverance. With our second album, Curse, now out on Candlelight Records, we are proudly raising the banner of UK Black Metal in 2012 and to be able to cap off a busy year with a Damnation appearance is an honour. Wæs thu hæl!

And completing Damnation’s announcement, progressive hardcore band Devil Sold His Soul will be hitting up the Jagermeister Stage with a new album to show case.

Devil Sold His Soul added: “We last played Damnation Festival back in 2008. It was hot, sweaty, loud and heavy and we loved every minute of it. We always enjoy playing in Leeds and the line-up this year looks incredible. We’ll have a new album out by then and can’t wait to play these new longs live – Bring it on Damnation.”

Announced so far for Damnation Festival 2012 is: Electric Wizard, My Dying Bride, Pig Destroyer, Belphegor, Primordial, Extreme Noise Terror, Textures, Devil Sold His Soul, Aura Noir, Gama Bomb, 40 Watt Sun and Wodensthrone.
