Fear, Emptiness, Decibel: Stream Cattle Decapitation’s New Flexi Disc, “Cannibalistic Invasivorism”
Before there were blogs there were these things called magazines, and the only metal magazine we still get excited about reading every month is Decibel. Here’s managing editor Andrew Bonazelli…
Two weeks ago in this space, we announced that San Diego deathgrind sickos Cattle Decapitation would make their Decibel Flexi Series debut in the August issue with “Cannibalistic Invasivorism” (nice and shiny on metallic-silver-on-blue vinyl). The track, as aforementioned, will not appear on forthcoming full-length The Anthropocene Extinction. In case you weren’t sufficiently enticed, today we bring you not only a stream of this bad boy, but some helpful exposition courtesy of frontman Travis Ryan.
“One thing we learned from our last couple albums was that an album’s flow can make or break an album,” Ryan says, “and it’s an often overlooked part of the album-making process. We ended up with a couple songs that got squeezed out of the album’s flow that were naturally then deemed ‘bonus tracks,’ and the track ‘Cannibalistic Invasivorism’ was one of ’em. It’s a song about doing away with pestiferous, invasive species of life through eating them, similar to the invasivorism movement by culinary artistes who use things like snails, squirrels, etc., or any animal/insect that need their numbers thinned down in any given area or ecosystem to have a positive impact on the region. Of course, in the ‘turning the tables’ nature of Cattle Decapitation, in this song we find the target being the single most invasive species on planet earth: the human being. Enjoy!”
We’ve a got a few copies of the August Decibel featuring that Cattle Decapitation flexi here. But hurry, like the human race, they won’t be available for much longer.
The August 2015 issue of Decibel also features Refused, Lamb of God, and High on Fire, and can be purchased here. But anyone who doesn’t just get a full subscription may be done away with like the pestiferous, invasive piece of humanure they are.
