Additional notes
Head in the Picklejar: (Guitars, 1991-1995)
Head in the Picklejar (known as HIPj) established Hull as a formidable guitar player with this thrash jazz trio (with Ben Eriksen on drums and Matt "Rosie" Rosen on Bass), genre hopping with songs about fishing, isolation, and the media. HIPj performed at CBGBs several times, opening for Urge Overkill, Unsane, the Supreme Dicks, Swinging Udders, and White Trash in their early days. HIPj had a previous incarnation as Technical Misanthrope which played from 1985-1988.

Pig Destroyer: (Guitars, 1997-present)
Scott can be seen as the driving force of Pig Destroyer's sound considering the lack of a bass player. He uses a multiple amplifier setup with rigs set on either side of the stage during live shows, spreading out his sound to fill the void left by the missing bassist. You can hear his distinct sound on Pig Destroyer's most prevalent releases: Phantom Limb, Terrifyer, Prowler in the Yard and 38 Counts of Battery, which includes the Explosions in Ward 6 compilation album (remastered and including the complete discography of the band up until 2000). Recordings usually consist of multiple guitar tracks.

Anal Cunt: (Guitars, 1996)
Scott's guitar work can be heard on Anal Cunt's 1996 release "40 More Reasons to Hate Us". Although not as technical as Scott's work with Pig Destroyer, his heavy sound is still prevalent with AC. According to Seth Putnam, he (himself) did most of the guitar playing and a lot of the drumming, as Tim could not play what he wanted him to and Scott was too new in the band to know all of their songs, as well as the fact that Seth just wanted to play guitar.

Agoraphobic Nosebleed: (Guitars, Drum programming, 1994-present)
Formed in 1994, Scott has been the only permanent member in Agoraphobic Nosebleed. Their first live performance was in 2003 when Pig Destroyer cut their set short to let ANb play two songs and an intro.

Japanese Torture Comedy Hour: (1996-unknown)
Formed by Scott Hull and former AC member Tim Morse, with Andrew Kokes doing electronics, Japanese Torture Comedy Hour is, as Scott puts it, a "hybrid of noisecore and power electronics!. Audio recordings are hard to come by for JTCH.

Producer:
Scott is also known for his ability of producing not only his own projects' albums, but others' as well. His studio, Visceral Sound, is based in Bethesda, Maryland. He is not to be confused with New York-based mastering engineer Scott Hull (owner of Masterdisk).

Influences:
Hull has spoken highly of experimental thrash metal band Voivod, jazz fusion guitarists John McLaughlin and Allan Holdsworth, and sludge metal innovators the Melvins.

Requiem was originally composed as a soundtrack to a movie, but it was abandoned when Hull began work on Pig Destroyer's "Phantom Limb". The music was later presented in album context at the request of Relapse Records.

Hull has commented that it would not have been his first choice to release as a solo album as it was written for another purpose, suggesting that future solo works will be of a different nature.
