CATTLE DECAPITATION “The Anthropocene Extinction” Available Now

Today sees the official worldwide release of the The Anthropocene Extinction, the long-anticipated new full-length from San Diego deathgrind unit, CATTLE DECAPITATION. Produced by Dave Otero (Allegaeon, Cephalic Carnage) at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado, The Anthropocene Extinction serves as CATTLE DECAPITATION‘s most sonically and thematically engrossing record of their maniacal discography.

Earning mass praise from critics globally, in a 9/10 review Exclaim calls The Anthropocene Extinction, “another stroke of genius by one of the best heavy bands of all time,” Decibel Magazine commends, “abundant hooks, extremity meeting musicality, a diverse vocal performance, an almost surprisingly bittersweet tone, and hairpin temp shifts,” adding, “there’s always been a fine line between extremity and listenability and CATTLE DECAPITATION have marvelously tiptoed that line again… their command of craft has never been better,” in a 4.25/5 rating Sputnik Music applauds a, “monolith of maturity,” that captures, “the dark nature of the theme with cutthroat brutality, malicious vibes and sharp complexity, adding up to what would most certainly be the most engaging if not best death metal album of the year,” while Metal Injection champions, “pure true death metal at its finest.”

Elsewhere the sentiment echoes. In a lengthy investigation of the offering, No Clean Singing concludes, “The Anthropocene Extinction is a furious blast of noise that takes absolutely no prisoners. It not only pounds its listeners into pulp, it also seems to be pounding its own concept of music as well… another impressive album that serves its listeners music in the form of fiery annihilation and will leave them looking like the corpse on the album’s cover,” Knac.com christens The Anthropocene Extinction, “one ferocious beast that is easily the best death metal of the year,” Metal Hammer issues in a 9/10 rating, “CATTLE DECAPITATION have taken a big risk, tried something new, and done something brilliantly horrific in the process. Awesomely fun and catchy, yes, but still viciously upsetting,” while Dead Rhetoric, in a 9.5/10 assessment, hails a record that, “reworks their best qualities in ways that allow them to blossom in fiendish and darker dimensions. Crushing from start to finish; what you may not expect is how frequently the music will embed itself into your earholes. Continuing to raise the bar for extreme music, The Anthropocene Extinction is a certain highlight of 2015 so far and not to be missed.”

CATTLE DECAPITATION‘s The Anthropocene Extinction is available NOW via Metal Blade Records at: metalblade.com/cattledecapitation.
