Album Review

I don't know about you, but Cattle Decapitation certainly gets my vote for most "colorful" name of an extreme metal band of recent memory. And for over a decade by this point, the group has certainly been unleashing the fury and continue to do so on their 2009 release, Harvest Floor. Produced by a chap who is no stranger to pushing sonic boundaries for albums he oversees, Billy Anderson (whose credits include the Melvins, Mr. Bungle, etc.), Harvest Floor certainly doesn't disappoint, as it follows the same blueprint laid down on the group's previous offerings — extreme metal at its most complex and brutal. And Cattle Decapitation's gift of coming up with glorious song titles remains very much intact, as evidenced by the presence of such ditties as "We Are Horrible People," "Tooth Enamel and Concrete," and especially, "Into the Public Bath."

Like it brutal? Get this.

Melding grindcore, death metal, and black metal elements, Cattle Decapitation yet again put out a fantastic album. Unlike stereotypical grindcore, this cd is relentlessly technical and even melodic, and there are no songs shorter than two and a half minutes.

Cattle decapitation really did a great job on this album. Its alot longer than their old stuff but they keep it to their level of insanity!

Not as Brutal as past albums, but just as good

Understand this, Cattle could to anything and I would buy it. On "The Harvest Floor", they did. The title track has a chick singing. Cattle Decapitation is the epitome of Death Metal, and if you have even a passing interest in the genre, buy this cd, and support one of the best grindcore bands ever


Formed: 1996 in San Diego, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Over the course of their existence, the San Diego-based Cattle Decapitation have transformed from a stripped-down gore-grind side project of the arty hardcore/grindcore band the Locust to a full-fledged death metal band of their own, undergoing a confusing maze of lineup changes in the process. The association with the Locust formed much of the original basis for CD's popularity in hardcore circles, which was unusual for a band that growled out the type of disturbing, gore-oriented lyrics usually...
