Pig Destroyer are streaming a new song titled “The Cavalry.“ This track will be available as a flexi disc in the April issue of Decibel Magazine. Guitarist Scott Hull commented:
“The music for ‘The Cavalry‘ was written as an explicit tribute to [late Terrorizer/Napalm Death guitarist] Jesse Pintado during the month of August 2018, specifically after listening to ‘Harmony Corruption‘ and ‘World Downfall‘ on repeat. We are proud to give this track to our hermanos over at Decibel and finally contribute to the Flexi Series as the 100th entry.”
