Cattle Decapitation Dec 29, 2018
What a year it's been! 2018 found a highly invigorated Cattle Decapitation firing on all cylinders and writing the follow up to 2015's The Anthropocene Extinction, played four different continents, the band's first ever trip all the way around the globe in one tour, tons of sold out shows resulting in a rogue wave of creative juices flowing into our next album coming in late 2019! We would like to thank our team Extreme Management Group, Inc., Metal Blade Records Metal Blade Records Europe, Rostam Zafar, Jim Parker, Diego Soria and everyone who worked alongside us this year to make our shows and releases happen! See you all later next year with a new album, new merch and world tour starting in the second half of 2019! #cattledecapitation #metalbladerecords #theanthropoceneextinction #extrememanagementgroup #extrememetal #deathmetal

Cattle Decapitation reveals details for rarities collection, 'Medium Rarities'; launches album track, "An Exposition of Insides" (Japanese bonus track from 'Monolith of Inhumanity'), online!!! On November 23rd, Cattle Decapitation will release their new rarities collection, Medium Rarities, via Metal Blade Records. Featuring 6 previously unreleased pre-Human Jerky (1999) demos with front-man Travis Ryan on guitar (while also handling vocal duties), plus the long-sought-after To Serve Man (2002) bonus track, "Rotting Children For Remote Viewing" - in addition to other rarities (including the 6 songs from 2005's split EP with Caninus!) - this compilation is must-have for any Cattle Decapitation fan. Travis Ryan comments: "'Medium Rarities' is a project we started about 10 years ago, and we're thrilled to see it finally happen! In 2008, I started compiling unreleased tracks, import bonus tracks and 7" releases for a rarities release - and even had the art created by the legendary Wes Benscoter, when we discovered that a key track was missing that we wanted to include on it. Our album 'To Serve Man' had a bonus track ready in case there was a Japanese version released, but that never happened - and the band members' copies of the track got lost, seemingly forever! We felt a rarities compilation released without that bonus track would be a weird idea, and so the project got shelved until recently. Heather Parsons of Metal Blade finally was able to unearth the track from an old disc that was tucked away in the Metal Blade vault! The lyrics to the song were unearthed along with it, and so we quickly got to work with compiling and mastering the rest. This is a nice, concise compilation of unreleased and hard-to-find tracks, complete with lyrics and cheeky vinyl color variant schemes, based on how people like their meat prepared. The European vinyl variants also resemble diseased meats…But my favorite part is the cassette, which was created to look like the vintage cassette releases we grew up on - complete with the old school Metal Blade axe logo! A lot of thought and work went into this release, and we are pleased to finally be able to present to you…'Medium Rarities'!" For a preview of Medium Rarities, "An Exposition of Insides" (a Japanese bonus track from 2012's Monolith of Inhumanity) can be streamed now at: - where the collection can also be pre-ordered in the following formats: USA vinyl variants: --"Rare" - Oxblood and Red 'Color in Color' (ltd. to 300 copies) --"Medium Rare" - Brown and Oxblood 'Color in Color' (only available in record stores - ltd. to 500 copies) --"Well Done" - Black and Brown 'Color in Color' (ltd. to 300 copies) --"Medium Rare Bone-In Human Shank" - Brown and Oxblood 'Color in Color' with Bone White blob (Indiemerch Collector's Bundle Exclusive - ltd. to 100 copies) Metal Blade Records Europe vinyl variants: --"Pink Slime" - Pink w/White 'Marble' (ltd. to 200 copies) --"Meat With Cancerous Tumour" - Red w/Yellow 'Color in Color' (ltd. to 200 copies) --"Lymphocytic Meat" - Red w/White 'Splatter' (ltd. to 100 copies) --"An Abnormal Amount of Excretion of Bile From Liver" - Orange w/Lime & Green 'Splatter' (ltd. to 100 copies) --180g Black (ltd. to 300 copies) Medium Rarities track-listing 1.
