You know, I can only imagine how it must feel to release an album that everyone expected to be good, but not as good as it was. Cattle Decapitation fits that bill. Monolith of Inhumanity, the band’s 7th album, continues to make better this sound they have established. Many of the songs here are now staples in the band’s live set, and everyone gets even more ridiculous after listening to them live. They’re even pushing how extreme someone can go, releasing what could be the most extreme music video ever created with “Forced Gender Reassignment”.
During their touring cycle for Monolith of Inhumanity, they’ve had some big shoes to fill. Playing after bands such as Six Feet Under and Dying Fetus is no easy task. However, I knew they were going to be fine when the crowd rushed the stage to scream “A LIVING, BREATHING PIECE OF DEFECATING MEAT!!!!”. Their shows are violent: a girl tried to stab me with her ring. Metal.
We talked to them after their show on December 6th about their tour, the DIY tour they did after the Six Feet Under debacle, and the video for Forced Gender Reassignment – too extreme? The interview is at the bottom of this post.
