AllMusic Review by

Grindcore heroes Pig Destroyer returned in 2007 with Phantom Limb, their third proper full-length for Relapse Records. Continuing to hone a sound that was among the most extreme ever created, Pig Destroyer delivered 15 tracks of precise, unrelenting musical brutality. "Thought Crime Spree" punishes with its blistering blastbeats; "Loathsome" slashes and scrapes the listener with what almost sounds like a groove; and throughout, lead singer J.R. Hayes' howl is so furious it's as if it contains not simply his own pain but that of the entire world.
