It's that time of the day when I shamelessly copy and paste the record label's press release over here again. Actually, not quite. I do throw in my own weightless opinion as well.
Yet another gore-obsessed (but pro-animal rights, now that's something different!) deathgrind band is recording a new album. In case some of you didn't notice, other deathgrind stalwarts who have knocked out new material recently include Exhumed (2011's All Guts, No Glory) and Aborted (2012's Global Flatline, which will be out in a few days time). Now, where's the daddy of 'em all, Carcass? All of these bands, including Cattle Decapitation, have practically been Carcass tribute bands at one early point in time during their careers. Why ain't the genre pioneers doing anything new when their groveling younglings are being so productive? Didn't they reform recently? So anyway, enough of my time-wasting babbling as usual, and on to the news.
Cattle Decapitation entered Denver, CO's FLATLINE AUDIO studio on January 7th to record the highly anticipated follow-up to their critically-acclaimed album The Harvest Floor (released in 2009 on Metal Blade Records).
Frontman Travis Ryan gushes:
"We spent the first two days mapping out tempos and getting things situated, drums mic'd all that stuff. Just started tracking drums today and everything is sounding great! We're excited to start laying down some tones and getting this beast finished and in the hands of our fans and friends."
The band has a small crew filming all steps of the way so fans of the band can look forward to studio video reports via the band's YouTube channel, and getting the full album details in the coming weeks when album title, cover image and track listing (as well as immediate U.S. and European tour plans) will be revealed.
