 You need to read more poetry, Mr. Lee. Though Pig Destroyer is awesome and their lyrics are great within their music's context, perhaps you turned off the hyperbole check on your computer when writing this review....

 lol. have to agree with ras. also, it's interesting to me that many of the reference points you offer (pantera, slayer, godflesh) are decidedly not grind. and i agree they do sound like those bands in a lot of places. which is what makes this album sort of a let-down for me. 'phantom limb' seems like a step away from what made 'terrifyer' so exciting (its refusal to be pinned down) and a step toward something altogether more -- commonplace, i guess.
