CATTLE DECAPITATION are pleased to announce the launch of their newly revised homepage! A constant work in progress, http://www.cattledecapitation.com is now optimized to be viewed on and interact with any platform such as I-Phone/Android, tablets and desktop computers.
CATTLE DECAPITATION continue to reap praise for their mammoth Monolith Of Inhumanity full-length released last month via Metal Blade Records. An achievement that stands out as one of the most volatile, ambitious, and impossible-to-pigeonhole records of 2012, Monolith Of Inhumanity revolves around a potent distaste for contemporary civilization and the damage wrought in the name of progress. Outburn gave the record a perfect 10/10 rating noting that “Monolith Of Inhumanity is truly the sound of a band at the top of their game.” Boasts About.com: “CATTLE DECAPITATION have merged into an intoxicating death metal group, doing what is necessary to slam faces into the wall, but doing so in a tender and passionate manner.” Metal Injection agrees: “…the diversity present here will stand the test of time as well as anything the Cali quartet have ever done. As icing on the cake, [producer Dave] Otero gives the album a virtually flawless production: everything sounds fantastic, from Travis Ryan’s pliable vocals to the tight snap of the drums.”Blistering christens the record, “…the quartet’s strongest effort to date,” Stereokiller calls Monolith “another solid CATTLE DECAP release that proves again that they are not to be fucked with,” while Revolver pointed out that that band here “shred harder than ever but with lots of cool twists…”
Team CATTLE DECAPITATION are currently gearing up for a month-long run this Summer as part of the Shockwave Festival Tour 2012. The band will appear alongside Fear Factory, Voivod, Misery Index, Revocation, Havok and many more. Presented by Full Metal Jackie, the trek begins on July 6 and runs through August 4. In the meantime, check out a hilariously honest special feature by Noisecreep entitled “Five Things to Always/Never Bring on Tour” by CATTLE guitarist Josh Elmore here: http://www.noisecreep.com/2012/06/08/cattle-decapitation-monolith-of-inhumanity/
In related news, the band will return to Europe in August to play some of the most monumental heavy metal festivals as well as a select number of intimate club shows. The complete set of dates is below.
Don’t forget to the band’s latest offering of cinematic sickness. The “Kingdom Of Tyrants” video is still viewable here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mgNLE4GHvk
