San Diego deathgrinders Cattle Decapitation are stoked to announce the release of The Anthropocene Extinction, due out on August 7th through Metal Blade Records. The Anthropocene Extinction was recorded, mixed and mastered by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio, while long-time collaborator Wes Benscoter created the artwork. The opening track, "Manufactured Extinct", is now available for public consumption below.
Good news for Cattle Decapitation fans today as the follow-up to Monolith Of Inhumanity (2012) is completed. The deathgrinders just finished their new record; the mixing and mastering are done. However, you can only get your hands on the new offering in mid-summer. Wes Benscoter has designed the cover artwork.
Cattle Decapitation's show last night didn't go according to plan. NBCLA reports that a man was knocked out by an angry crowd after allegedly slashing a person at a show at La Habra 300 Bowl in California. Reports indicate that a man was unhappy after being pushed around in the pit, and then took out a knife and stabbed another person on the neck. Other attendees quickly sprung into action and collectively attacked the knife-wielding man and knocked him unconscious. Meanwhile, the band has also released a statement about the incident.
Cattle Decapitation have been hard at work preparing new material and are finally ready to begin recording the follow-up to Monolith Of Inhumanity. The San Diego deathgrinders will be returning to Dave Otero's Flatline Audio studio in Colorado. Otero was at the helm for both of the band's previous albums. Also, the group is giving fans one final chance to see them live, and to hear new songs, before they begin to track their upcoming album with some shows in January. Sounds like a good opportunity to check out the new material.
Earlier this year, Cattle Decapitation confirmed an European summer tour and dates together with death metal legends Possessed. For those who were looking forward to the tour, we regret to inform you that Cattle Decapitation have cancelled all the tour dates including festival dates. The reason is "unforeseen circumstances" so it really isn't very clear.
