History & Biography
This Virginia-based lovers of all things related to dead cops and barbecue was founded by Scott Hull in Virginia, USA in 1997. There was a demo in 1997. The members used aliases here in order to not ride the coattails of their other bands, but that did not last long. A 1998 EP was called Explosions In Ward 6 and issued by Reservoir Records. A couple of splits followed until Relapse issued the group’s debut, Prowler In The Yard, in July 2001. Terrifyer added a bonus DVD featuring an audio track. The album’s cover art features Jesus following days of drinking too much non-organic milk. The band was part of the Grind Over UK 4 tour with Halo, Narcosis and Total Fucking Destruction. JR was injured stage diving and required medical attention in the UK. Thus, he ended up missing the end of the tour with others pitching in. The band appeared at Maryland Death Fest in 2005. A split with Phobia did not materialize. Blake Harrison joined for Phantom Limb and was responsible for samples, which is odd for a band founded to play true grindcore. Regardless, Harrison had been a roadie for the act previously.

2012’s Book Burner was recorded at Visceral Sound Studio. It featured a bonus EP called Blind, Deaf And Bleeding, which was later issued separately. This studio was also a rehearsal space the band had built for itself. The band recruited drummer Adam Jarvis’ cousin, John Jarvis, on bass in late 2013. The band had gone so long without a bassist. The band played Denver Black Sky festival to commemorate Relapse’s 25th anniversary alongside Ringworm, Skinless and others in 2015. Fulgora was a project in 2015. Scour was a project featuring John Jarvis. Head Cage was named after a medieval torture apparatus. Black Harrison was a guest on No/Mas’ Raiz Del Mal EP in 2018. John Jarvis left in 2019. Adam Jarvis joined Lock up to replace Nick Barker in June 2020. The band had an EP called The Octagonal Stairway in August 2020. Blake Harrison left in 2022. Alex Cha replaced him in 2023.

‘Pig’ is slang for cops.
