THIS is an extreme death metal tour. We are so excited to be co-presenting (along with MetalSucks) Dying Fetus' final headlining run of 2012, called The Blood Of The Power tour, kicking off November 24th in Atlanta. The band will be joined by Cattle Decapitation for the first half of the tour and Malignancy for the second half. Also, upstart female-fronted death metal extremists Cerebral Bore will be opening all the dates.
Here is the routing: (more…)
Now, this is a fucking tour! Six Feet Under has announced that they will be going on tour next month with grind-masters Cattle Decapitation and Wretched. The Autumn Apocalypse Tour, which Chris Barnes apparently named himself, will begin in Tampa, Florida, on October 30. The trek will go up and down the East Coast, with a few Midwestern dates thrown in the mix. I would love to see this tour come to Texas, but it looks like I'm going to have to make the drive. Getting to see Kevin Talley drum in a band with Chris Barnes is enough reason for me to go. Check the dates below: (more…)

We got a bit excited about a new summer festival trying to establish itself, the Shockwave Festival. It was to feature Fear Factory and Voivod co-headlining with some awesome support acts, Cattle Decapitation, Misery Index, Revocation, Havok, Dirge Within, Last Chance To Reason, Vildhjarta, The Browining and Forged To Flame, but it seems that is no more. A few weeks ago, four of the support bands announced they couldn't make the trek due to reasons beyond their control. Last week, Voivod announced they were dropping off, then Misery Index, then Cattle Decap and then finally Fear Factory, leaving the tour promoters with no choice but to officially announce the cancellation. Here is the official statement from the tour organizers: (more…)
When I read the announcement for the Shockwave Festival, I was pretty excited about the number of awesome supporting bands. The bad news is that four of the them have dropped off the bill for reasons unknown. Fear Factory posted an updated tour flyer for the festival, which doesn't feature either Dirge Within or Forged In Flame. Metal Insider is also reporting that organizers have confirmed to them that Revocation and Vildhjarta have dropped off the tour as well. (more…)
Touring is hard, and sometimes it takes a few tours under your belt to fully understand all the dos and don'ts of touring. Luckily, Cattle Decapitation guitarist Josh Elmore is giving you a leg up with his recent contribution to Noisecreep, 'Five Things to Always/Never Bring on Tour.'
Among the things to bring are wet wipes, "They're no substitute for a shower, but they will take an edge off that tasty mélange of skid marks/balls/crotch funk you've acquired." (more…)
Cattle Decapitation like to give mixed signals: on the one hand, there are the songs beloved by animal rights activists that decry factory farm conditions and lab testing; on the other hand, there are the Cannibal Corpse-worshiping, unapologetic gore tracks. These are not mutually exclusive traits, mind you, it's just that the increasing number of context-free horror tales make one wonder just how much this band desires to be taken seriously. (more…)
The metal gods have spoken, and the cosmic wheel of new releases ever turns. Last week we got by on the strength of no-names and hidden gems; this week, we're bombarded with major releases from across the globe and across all genres. Two highly anticipated and longggggg awaited debuts from Storm Corrosion and Ne Obliviscaris will finally see the light of day, we'll get some shiny new tech-death from Gorod and Cattle Decapitation, and we'll reflect on the re-issuing of Sleep's legendary Dopesmoker. And as always, there's some other cool stuff that I'm too lazy to mention. Check it out: (more…)

A/V Roundup: New Music from Brendon Small, Cattle Decapitation Jeff Loomis, Pelican, Demon Hunter and Emmure
We're gearing up to headto the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, but before we leave, let's take a gander at some new music…
Yet another new track from Brendon Small has made it's way online. Galaktikon comes out April 29th, the same day as the new season premiere of Metalocalypse. I have to say, this is the weakest of three songs heard so far. (more…)
It's Tuesday and it's around that time where you need a quick break from your daily routine…the perfect time to check in with today's A/V Roundup:
Here is live video of Cattle Decapitation frontman Travis Ryan joining Soulfly onstage for a live rendition of the track "World Scum" from Soulfly's new record, Enslaved. Ryan provides guest vocals on the recorded track, and goes up on stage to perform the track live. Fun times! (more…)
A/V Roundup: New music from CATTLE DECAPITATION, ARSIS, JOB FOR A COWBOY; STEEL PANTHER Roast ZAKK WYLDE
It's Tuesday morning and I'm still personally recovering from a crazy week at SXSW. Yesterday was a ton of e-mail answering and catching up and today hopefully things will slowly be restored to normal. Thankfully, while I was gone there has been a ton of awesome new music out there. Let's begin, shall we?
Well, I'm officially excited for the new Cattle Decapitation album. Holy crap, this new track, "A Living, Breathing Piece of Defecating Meat" is phenomenal, in content and song titling. I love LOVE LOVE the vocals that Travis Ryan is experimenting with on this track. Ryan is definitely one of the most underrated frontmen in extreme metal, as he has great range. We'll be able to hear that range out in full force when the band's new album, Monolith of Inhumanity, comes out May 8th. (more…)
ORIGIN, CATTLE DECAPITATION, DECREPIT BIRTH, ABORTED, RINGS OF SATURN, BATTLECROSS Team Up For North American Tour
Holy. Fucking. Shit. If you want to talk about extreme tours, THIS is an extreme tour. This is like Spring Slaughter! Origin, Cattle Decapitation, Decrepit Birth, Aborted, Rings of Saturn and Battlecross are teaming up for what is being called the Occupation Domination 2012. I prefer Spring Slaughter. It all kicks off April 20th in Baltimore and wraps up on May 18th in Lawrence, KS. Here is the full routing: (more…)
This is super exciting news for death metal fans everywhere…Cattle Decapitation is officially done with their new record. The band posted a statement on their Facebook page yesterday stating it was the final day of mixing the album, and they are all done with "what is surely to be our most blistering album yet." No title or release date yet, but I'm ready for new Cattle Decap! Here is the full statement: (more…)
