Cattle Decapitation Streaming New Single "Lifestalker"

Today California conquerors Cattle Decapitation release "Lifestalker," the second single off their new album "Monolith Of Inhumanity."

Set for release on May, 8th, 2012, the record was produced by Dave Otero of Denver's Flatline Audio and according to a press release "sees the band exploring innovative new techniques in song writing without abandoning their signature formula of confrontational audio wreckage and self-loathing lyrical content."

Vocalist Travis Ryan adds: "We just returned from a great European tour where we played a ton of new songs which were received extremely well by everyone over there! So much so that we decided to premiere the second sample track of our new album Monolith of Inhumanity on a European website for all our fans and the new fans we just made during this last tour! We had a blast and we hope you all get a kick out of the new track 'Lifestalker.' This new album is light years ahead of the rest of our albums and we look forward to coming back to Europe to decapitate you all with it!"

The 11-track "Monolith Of Inhumanity" features a host of guests including Mike Majewski of Devourment (guest vocals on "Projectile Ovulation"), Lenard Leal of Cephalic Carnage (backing vocals by on "A Living, Breathing Piece of Defecating Meat"), The Cephalic Carnage Community Men's Choir, consisting of all current Cephalic members and alumni Jawsh Mullen and Zac Joe (gang choir vocals on "The Carbon Stampede"), and ambient and noise interludes by Los Angeles' most extreme decimator of sound, John Wiese, as well as another strikingly brutal cover by Wes Benscoter.

interesting how all grindcore bands end up sounding something closer to standard death metal at some point in their career.

I didn't expect that melodic part half way through this track that was mad weird. Wasn't bad and I'm still not a huge fan of this band but that was pretty interesting.
