Cattle Decapitation Reveals Chart Positions For New Album "Monolith Of Inhumanity"

"Monolith Of Inhumanity," the latest slab of sonic annihilation from California progressive grind tyrants Cattle Decapitation, landed at #32 on the Billboard Top Independent Album Chart, #23 on the Billboard Top Hard Music Albums chart, #6 on the Billboard New Artist Chart, and #177 Billboard Top Current Albums Chart upon its first week of release. In Canada the record ranked in at #41 on the Hard Music Chart as well as #4 in the metal category and #71 in the rock category on iTunes.

The Dave Otero–produced "Monolith Of Inhumanity" was released on May 8th, 2012 via Metal Blade Records. Conceptually, the record revolves around a potent distaste for contemporary civilization and the damage wrought in the name of progress. In addition, "Monolith Of Inhumanity" features guest appearances by 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. Footage from the band's time in the studio can be viewed below.

Cattle Decapitation is currently finishing up the Occupation Domination 2012 tour alongside Origin, Decrepit Birth, Aborted, Rings Of Saturn, Battlecross and more. The band will continue the onstage takeovers with some one-off shows before heading out on this Summer’s Shockwave Festival Tour 2012. Cattle Decapitation will be joined by Fear Factory, Voivod, Misery Index, Revocation, Havok, Dirge Within, Last Chance To Reason, Vildhjarta, The Browning and Forged In Flame.
