Cattle Decapitation Parts Ways with Derek Engemann, Announces Two New Members

  • Axl Rosenberg

Out with the old, in with the new: after eight years, Cattle Decapitation have parted ways with bassist Derek Engemann. No reason for the split has been publicly stated…

…but new members of the band have already been announced! And yes, you read that correctly: members, plural. ‘Cause not only has the band added bassist Olivier Pinard (Cryptopsy, Neuraxis) to replace Engemann, but they’ve also added Belisario Dimuzio (Eukaryst) as a second guitarist to play alongside axemaster Josh Elmore.

Says the band in a statement:

“We’re pleased to announce the new lineup that will appear on our next album due out in fall 2019! Many of you who have come to our shows in the past couple of years have seen that we have had a 2nd guitarist on stage with us for the first time in the band’s existence. We proudly welcome Belisario Dimuzio (from San Diego’s Eukaryst) as a full-time member, and he will appear on the next album! We’re also happy to announce Olivier Pinard (Cryptopsy) as our new bassist, who will be appearing on our next album as well! Oli has filled in on shows with us in the past; the chemistry we have with both him and Bel is undeniable, and we’re excited to have them with us. Be sure to keep an eye out for Cryptopsy’s next release entitled ‘The Book Of Suffering: Tome 2’! Also be on the lookout for a HUGE announcement coming Sept. 20th, regarding a super cool Cattle Decapitation release that has been in the works for a decade now! It’s an exciting time for the Decap! Stay tuned!!!”

I agree! It is an exciting time for the Decap! I will stay tuned! Thanks, dudes!!!
