“a true extreme metal gem with intelligent lyrics and phenomenal performances” – BLABBERMOUTH.net
With 5 full-lengths and countless tours under their belt as well as having influenced the majority of today’s rapidly-growing-in-popularity death/grind hopefuls, CATTLE DECAPITATION continue their own brand of spastic gore-drenched grinding death with their 4th Metal Blade release, “The Harvest Floor” for release on January 19th, 2009. This marks the first release featuring the latest addition to the fold, drummer David McGraw, formerly of Sleep Terror. Fusing 2006’s “Karma.Bloody.Karma” writing style with a much anticipated update in technicality, production and brutality, “The Harvest Floor” will undoubtedly be a milestone in the ever-diversifying metal scene that is now dominating the globe. The enhanced portion of the CD version sports an IPOD ready documentary titled “Pandemic: The Damnation Epic – The Making of “The Harvest Floor” and the layout reveals the true carnage that the cover art by Wes Benscoter, in it’s over the top yet highly conceptual glory, only hints at. “The Harvest Floor” is simply put, an apocalyptic multimedia epic! “The Harvest Floor” shows a return to the engineering and production skills of Billy Anderson (Mr. Bungle, Melvins, Swans) with a combination of drum recording by Zach Ohren (All Shall Perish, Decrepit Birth) to create a modern but unique sound that is disturbingly pummeling. Holed up in Sharkbite studios in Oakland, CA for nearly a month away from the punishing light of day, CATTLE DECAPITATION hid in the depths and have sprouted new hell with the masterpiece that is… “The Harvest Floor”.
