Pig Destroyer, perhaps D.C.’s most beloved local metal band, has a darkly stylish new video for “The Diplomat”—-from the band’s new album, Book Burner—-that features Kubrickian apes, creepy dudes in a space Mercedes, and a kick-ass action scene. It all adds up to a pithy critique of the beasts we are and the beasts we endure, and that’s what grindcore does so well.
