Cattle Decapitation! The Anthropocene Extinction! This is everything I have been waiting for. This is everything that you have been waiting for! Does it surpass Monolith? Will it be the album of the year? Well I think it may be a damn good contender for album of the year, but it doesn’t blow Monolith of Inhumanity out of the water as much as you may expect. Instead, it’s a solid evolution and rolls along side of that album in such a good way. Anthropocene is fast, it’s hectic, it’s a vocal experiment and it’s something that will absolutely blow your mind! A very solid release from the guys whom should be proud at what they have become and the caliber of death metal they have achieved. A new level of diabolical madness can be heard on The Anthropocene Extinction and it’s blissful music to my ears.
Time to raise a simple question: Do you want to die? If you want to hear the new Cattle Decapitation track, then you need to make sure you go to the Housecore Horror show in Austin, TX later this month. If you also want even more Travis Ryan (and we all know you want it) then watch the Wizards of Gore (aka Rigor Mortis) show as Travis will be on vocal duties for their set. More information and set times below!
Cattle Decapitation – Your Disposal (Monolith of Inhumanity)
Dates announced soon…
Best albums of 2012!!!!! This year was a great year for metal. Tons of bands from many different genres put out incredible music this year. I was surprised by the swarm of submissions I got this year and many of the lesser known bands scored really high. There is a mix of well known bands and “who the hell is that?”, be sure to check these albums out if you haven’t yet.
Well here you go, the top 10 albums of 2012!

Well let’s kick off this morning with my true thoughts and feelings on metal blogs, bands, fans and everything within the metal community. These things are what is wrong with metal and why metal will never evolve into the powerful being that it should be. Sure, we listen to the most musically profound music in the entire world. Like Brian Posehn said: “Metal heads go crazy when you mention metal. You never see a guy with his shirt off screaming “R&B”!!!” Besides the excellent music, fans of metal are usually very cool people to talk to. However, anymore…it’s a pain in the ass. Everyone has something negative to say, everyone is hyper sensitive when they don’t like it, there are elitist jerkoffs on every YouTube video and forums, don’t forget all of the drama that get’s caused by douche nozzles on tour and shit getting blown up by blogs like they are TMZ all of a sudden. The actual musicians are the least of the problem, it’s the god damn fan base and blogs.
Jeff from Grindstopher Productions, Sick Drummer Magazine and the Cattle Decapitation fan boy club is celebrating his 33rd birthday today! Hit him up on Facebook and leave him a message! Oh, and he recently shot and edited a lyric video for an old song of theirs. “Diarrhea of the Mouth” from their album Homovore from 1999. I’m a huge fan of Jeff’s work and everything he does within the realm of extreme music.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOTHERFUCKER!!!!!
Enjoy “Diarrhea of the Mouth” below:
Grindstopher Productions: Here are some recent videos he shot. Jeff travels through out the Midwest to capture bands tearing it up on stage. While he mainly shoots drum videos for Sick Drummer, he sometimes captures the entire band performing a song or two. Here are some recent videos he put together. An overall great guy, go check out his Facebook page and give it a like. Tell him I sent you.
