Cattle Decapitation - 'Your Disposal' from Monolith Of Inhumanity (2012)
Cattle Decapitation have over the years gone from being a kind of conceptual novelty 'misanthropocene vegetarian death metal' band to being an utterly beautiful/terrifying misanthropocene not-as-vegetarian death metal band. This is a real difference, because back in the day I liked them enough to buy my then girlfriend a Cattle Decapitation shirt that she wore lots around the house and even out despite not being really into death metal which had a diagram of a human with all of the beef cuts translated and the instructions 'discard head' and I listened to them now and then but starting with The Harvest Floor (2009) and then especially with Monolith Of Inhumanity (2012) and The Anthropocene Extinction (2015) their artistry has fully flowered into something incredible. This generally doesn't happen this far into a band's career, but I am glad it has, a large part of which is the evolution of Travis Ryan's incredible vocal performances. 'Your Disposal' is a song/video I am wholly addicted to. It has a really neat grimy/organic aesthetic that is rare in death metal videos and I am about it. Here is the whole of Monolith of Inhumanity to listen to on Cattle Decapitation's bandcamp page! They have other albums up their too, including their new one!!!
