Cattle Decapitation Announces Details of New Album

Cattle Decapitation has issued the following update, revealing details of their new, upcoming album:

"We’re FINALLY done with all the finishing touches of our new album and we feel we’ve finally done it! Sonically, the band has managed to finally capture and accentuate its live intensity that we’ve become known for and has created one hell of an album from start to epic finish! Conceptually, its misanthropy shall go unmatched. This is it, humans... ferocity at its finest.

"The album is called 'The Harvest Floor,' a title Travis has been kicking around in his head and working towards for the last 2 albums! The actual title refers to the area of a slaughterhouse where the animal (of course in our case it always means the HUMAN) begins the agonizing process of death, usually done with a bolt to the forehead or a slice to the throat. 'The Harvest Floor' is a fitting title for an album laden in gore and the anti-human metaphors and sentiments CATTLE DECAPITATION fans have grown to know and love. Artwork by Wes Benscoter shows the outside of a large slaughterhouse/factory of doom and gloom with the general public being herded inside to meet their demise. The inside of the album layout reveals what’s really inside that slaughterhouse: our misanthropic heroes of GORE (not core) at another hard day of work! Combined with the amazing artwork and conceptually brutal layout, The Harvest Floor also contains an enhanced portion which sports an I-pod ready documentary titled 'Pandemic: The Damnation Epic – The Making of The Harvest Floor' which, simply put, makes 'The Harvest Floor' an apocalyptic multimedia epic!"

Here is the tracklisting for "The Harvest Floor":

1. The Gardeners of Eden
2. A Body Farm
3. We are Horrible People
4. Tooth Enamel & Concrete
5. The Ripe Beneath the Rind
6. The Product Alive
7. In Axetasy
8. Into the Public Bath
9. The Harvest Floor
10. Regret & the Grave

No strangers to guest appearances, CATTLE DECAPITATION has enlisted some old friends for guest vocals including Ross Sewage (Impaled/Ludicra) and Dino Sommese (Dystopia/Asunder). The band has also announced that there is a special appearance by Jarboe (Swans), lending her beautifully haunting voice to the epic death dirge "The Harvest Floor." Jackie Perez Gratz (Grayceon/Amber Asylum) graces a couple tracks with her electric cello and Los Angeles noisician John Wiese also lends his electronic/atmospheric expertise to the album further separating the band from the typical "cookie-cutter" approach applied all too often by today’s extreme acts.

Asunder Complete Work On New Album

Profound Lore Records have issued the following press release with regards to ASUNDER's new album, Works Will Come Undone:

"Bay Area doom metal masters Asunder have completed work on their highly anticipated full-length album. Entitled Works Will Come Undone, the new album will showcase why Asunder are one of the most important doom metal bands in the scene today. Dwelling within the realms of avant-garde experimental death/funeral doom, Works Will Come Undone was produced by legendary helmsman Billy Anderson and presents an epic and mournful sonic landscape of somber layered sounds where lush crawling melodies are weaved amongst ritualistic chants and monolithic rhythms of despair and triumph. Works Will Come Undone also features the cello expertise of AMBER ASYLUM’S Jackie Gratz, and features the artwork of respected artist David D’Andrea (www.sonofenoch.com). To be presented in a specially cased pocket-slip digipack, Works Will Come Undone shall penetrate the cracks of light early-to-mid October. Comprised of two tracks clocking in at a mammoth length of 50 minutes, tracklisting for Works Will Come Undone goes as follows: 'A Famine', 'Rite Of Finality'."
