Enter Mass & Volume, Pig Destroyer's new two-song doom-focused effort on sale now via Bandcamp. Order yours, and though the tracks haven't surfaced before and are from the Phantom Limb sessions, don't mistake them for throwaways AND 100% of the proceeds benefit a good cause. Stream it below...

In honor of the man who was so instrumental in the success of so many Relapse bands and records, the label has put together a 20 track compilation featuring a collection of his favorite songs and artists, including Mastodon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Brian Posehn, Red Fang, Death, and many more, including a never-before-released track from Exhumed.All of the proceeds from the release will go towards a college fund for his daughter Katie. Alternately, if you want to donate more or just want to donate, you can contribute via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Stream that comp below and buy your copy at Bandcamp.
RIP Pat Egan. We crossed paths many many times at shows and beyond and your presence and humor will be missed.
