The colors, handpicked by the band, reflect the concept or color scheme behind each album. Fans will also have the opportunity to pick up a collectable box that comes with an exclusive T-shirt, both with brand new art from longtime Cattle Decapitation cover artist, Wes Benscoter. Additionally, “To Serve Man”, the band’s debut full-length, and their sophomore effort “Humanure” have been remastered specially for this release.

Cattle Decapitation’s Travis Ryan adds: “We are very excited to announce the “Decade of Decapitation” reissues! All of our Metal Blade discography has been out of print since right after each release and we’re glad we will finally be able to meet some of the demands of the fans with these cool reissues! I’ve had rare items in my personal collection that came with an empty spot for other items that had to be hunted down in order to be complete, I always thought that was fun and so now we pass the hunt on to our fans! The box art is another quality piece from the great Wes Benscoter which reveals the inside living space of a psychopath hellbent on revenge, the same point of view from which the majority of our lyrics come from.”
