New song, ‘A Living, Breathing Piece of Defecating Meat’, now on-line
Three years have lapsed since society has been spewed upon by a CATTLE DECAPITATION album. In those three years the band has toured the globe, gained a legion of new fans with said album (The Harvest Floor) and have now written their most palatable, yet abrasive record yet. Even with song titles like Projectile Ovulation, Forced Gender Re-Assignment and Gristle Licker, CATTLE DECAPITATION have managed to forge yet another beautiful deathscape that will leave fans of 2009’s The Harvest Floor breathless, spent and begging for mercy.
Monolith of Inhumanity is the band’s fifth studio release on Metal Blade Records, in which once again sees CATTLE DECAPITATION exploring additional techniques in song writing and musical progressions. Not straying away from the frenzied guitar playing, machine gun intensity drumming, bowel movement inducing vocals, and of course self-loathing lyrical content, Monolith of Inhumanitywill mark the band’s most accomplished record to date. Recruiting some fresh meat in the way of Dave Otero to handle all of the studio duties, the band has accomplished what they have longed to do for an album. Adding Otero to the mix gave CATTLE DECAPITATION the missing component. Artwork is once again being handled by Wes Benscoter. The culmination of Benscoter’s unearthly abilities fused with Travis Ryan’s demented view have once again proven to be memorable and fitting for what the music holds in store for the listener.
CATTLE have also collaborated with famed pop culture artist Tom Bunk for a very special art project that will be available from theband’s webstore. Tom is best known for his work for the 1980’s Garbage Pail Kids trading cards, his work with MAD Magazine, and has created an incredible GPK inspired CATTLE DECAPITATIONtrading card set that must be seen to be believed. Needless to say, the collaboration between the two camps is like Jeffrey Dahmer and John Wayne Gacey being pen pals.
CATTLE DECAPITATION will continue to tour in support ofMonolith of Inhumanity across the globe, starting in the USA with long time friends ORIGIN. Summer 2012 will also mark the band’s first time playing European Summer Festivals.
Monolith will continue to cement CATTLE’s legacy as one of the most influential and important bands in extreme music. As MetalSucks.net puts it: “Cattle Decapitation have the sort of skills that put them squarely at the head of grind’s noisy pack.”
