Pig Destroyer are officially in the studio!

You should all be very excited.  It’s been rumored for a while, and now it has finally been confirmed that the legendary masters of extreme music Pig Destroyer have entered the studio to record their 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, and is shooting for a late 2012 Relapse Records release.

Pig Destroyer have enlisted Adam Jarvis of Misery Index Index to handle the drumming responsibilities and he is now a full time member.  Scott Hull commented recently on Adam’s addition:

“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.”

This will be the band’s fifth studio album and the follow up to 2007′s Phantom Limb.  Not much other information is available but we’ll keep you posted.

    For the past five years, I have tried very hard to lose weight. A mriayd of health problems (high blood pressure, a history of heart problems, acute asthma, depression and autism-related seizures) have made it impossible, even when I follow a doctor directed diet and exercise program. Five months ago, another heart problem cost me my job, and left me homeless and without insurance. While I now have a place to stay, I am still having a lot of health problems that are tied in with my weight. I have a disability application pending (due to my autism, not my weight), but have been told it may take another year before I have insurance, and before that is finished processing. At 5 2 and 210 pounds, my BMI is just barely low enough that I don’t qualify under healthy guidelines, even if I were to go to a doctor and pay out of pocket. I have been told that I would qualify, however, due to the health problems I have relating to my weight (my blood pressure, severe depression and asthma). Since I have tried everything else, I want to look into the possibility of lap-band surgery. I’ve done my research, and I would like to find a way to do this. However, since I am unable to work, I need to find a weight loss center, doctor or aid program that might be able to help me out for little or no cost. I’m located in Indiana. I am neither lazy nor a mooch, but I need to get this health problem taken care of before I can deal with some of the others, and I want to be a better mom for my kids.
