Relapse Records certainly have an ear for ground-breaking grindcore and Pig Destroyer’s Prowler In The Yard absolutely slays.

An uncanny knack for riffs, which offered groove amidst the grind, elevated Prowler In The Yard to legendary status and for music so psychopathically chaotic it’s astonishing how listenable its incredible 22 tracks really are.

A convulsive nightmare set to brutally uncompromising noise, Pig Destroyer’s bleak genius lies in their unremitting attack; a scathing indictment of life in modern society where the weak can be torn to shreds by their nearest and dearest.

With Prowler In The Yard, Relapse Records released an album that transcended genre to reach a diverse fanbase and remains one of grindcore’s most important records.

  1. Through Silver In Blood is a truly terrifying listen that leaves you feeling drained after playing it. Heavy in every sense of the word.

    Saw them in Belfast when the album came out as support for Entombed. The crowd was just transfixed on the stage for the duration of their set, poor Entombed didn’t stand a chance coming on after them.

    Incantantion – Onward to Golgotha?

  4. Great list, but I’d add Incantation, Burnt by the Sun, Coalesce, and Necrophagist.
