You scream, I scream, we've all been screaming for a new Pig Destroyer album since 2007's Phantom Limb left us wanting more. But more important than our shrill cries are those that come pouring out of J.R. Hayes, along with those ever-punishing blast beats and the nineteen tracks and thirty-two relentless minutes of grind that make up 2012's Book Burner.

On their earliest releases the band's political and societal grievances were more at the forefront than they have been recently, where personal issues bubbled up and over--but Book Burner brings us back around to a Fahrenheit 451 kind of autocratic dissatisfaction that can't be ignored. But you don't have to dive into the ideals behind the album to recognize this as the most brutishly bloodthirsty grindcore album you'll hear this year.

To enter to win a copy of Book Burner before its October 22nd release, tell us in the comments below about your favorite banned book (or album). You must have a mailing address in the US or Canada to enter to win. This contest will close at midnight on the 22nd.
