Compromise is not a concept Cattle Decapitation are willing to entertain. Ever. Over the course of twenty years and eight full lengths the San Diego quartet have more than proven themselves in the international metal scene and with their current album The Anthropocene Extinction (Metal Blade) they have delivered a volatile, apocalyptic beast that is as hideous as it is compelling.

To get sense of just how unrelenting Cattle Decapitation are on stage, watch this video, shot by Obscenery Films from their recent European tour for the track The Prophets Of Loss http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCsoB8p578Q

Delivering repeated sledgehammer blows at breakneck speed enables the band to maintain their position at the most violent
end of the death metal spectrum yet their most recent offerings have expanded their sound, allowing a little more melody in without losing any of their intensity. The brutality is underpinned by vocalist Travis Ryan’s bleak lyrics that bluntly illustrate the fate of the human race if it’s allowed to continue pillaging and destroying the planet.

Cattle Decapitation are the soundtrack to savagery. A striking, unflinching reflection of the current state of humanity
