What a way to celebrate Metal Blade’s 35th anniversary.
Having conquered all of the corners of Europe Cattle Decapitation announce that they will be bringing their brand of Grind back to the US this Autumn.
The world of extreme Metal is one not for the faint hearted. Relying on devotion, understanding and above all passion Cattle Decapitation are the perfect flag bearers for the monicker of what is deemed to be truly extreme. Mixing caustic musical ideas with scathingly relevant lyrical subject matter the band are a true force to be reckoned. Releasing their latest misanthropic ode to the demise of humanity The Anthropocene Extinction just last year the band are currently touring the world in support of the excellent record. Shortly before their devastatingly brilliant, sold out Nambucca performance in London we were able to speak to one Travis Ryan. Discussing issues ranging from the nightmare that was the band’s previous London appearance to what made the singer decide to create somewhat of a niche in the Metal scene. Cattle Decapitation truly are the purveyors of all things extreme.
Extremities are present within any genre of music. Monopolising opinion from polarising opposites attracting those more akin to whatever section of the musical spectrum it might represent. Returning back to the UK Cattle Decapitation continue their on off love affair with Blighty after a four year absence. Arriving at the venue mere minutes before the band were scheduled to be on stage in 2012, returning with their sophomore effort The Anthropocene Extinction garnering critical and fanatical acclaim Cattle Decapitation gravitate now to a sold out headline show in London’s Nambucca.
And it’s just as gruesome as might think.
Coming off the back of the current Tyrants tour with Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation will at last be coming back to Europe and namely the UK this June.
Sweetest of the sixteens we delve into a murky world of landfill but before we can explore this apocalyptic of worlds we must first look back.
Phil Anselmo might be one of the biggest personalities in Metal but it also seems he is one of the busiest. Setting up band’s left right and center among running his own horror festival the man can now add this band to his impressive roster, Scour.
Releasing their latest album the devastating The Anthropocene Extinction just last week, we can safely say that the first week of sales have been absolutely fantastic for the band.
Easily one of the best tours of the yer so far, it would seem that Cannibal Corpse are the kings of incredible line ups.
Entering the era that is now called the Anthropocene we, as humans are very much active in the destruction of our own planet. The Anthropocene era is one where the humans’ effect on the planet is beginning to be felt. Not only in well developed countries but the third world and even the sea itself. Through Carbon emissions, pollution and over population, to use the band’s own words “We Are All Horrible People”. With our shepherds arriving to forewarn us of our imposing doom, Cattle Decapitation show us that if we continue taking advantage of our planet we will soon face The Anthropocene Extinction.
Later this week the world will be witness to the brand new offering from Extreme metallers Cattle Decapitation and now you don’t even have to wait until Friday to hear the record!
