As the official deployment of The Anthropocene Extinction (on Metal Blade Records) the impending new full-length from San Diego deathgrind visionaries, CATTLE DECAPITATION, draws ever closer, today Vice Magazine’s mega music portal, Noisey, premieres the official “making of” documentary.
“Tracked by Dave Otero (Allegaeon, Cephalic Carnage) at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado, The Anthropocene Extinction serves as CATTLE DECAPITATION‘s most sonically and thematically engrossing record to date. With The Anthropocene Extinction we are transported forward to man’s last gasps in the band’s trademark “turning the tables” approach that mirrors what is happening in the Pacific Ocean: The birds and aquatic wildlife are mistaking the vast amounts of man-made plastic items for food, ingesting it and are dying in large numbers, rotting where they fall and exposing to the world what is happening to the ecosystems of the earth’s oceans – the most unknown and unexplored part of our planet – and the domino effect that will result… The Anthropocene Extinction.”
The making of The Anthropocene Extinction mini documentary brings fans up close and personal with the band and the intricacies involved in following up their critically-lauded Monolith Of Inhumanity full-length.
Issues Noisey of the fifteen-plus minute clip, “It’s an interesting look on how the band has changed their approach over the years, especially when gearing up for the new record. From Homovore to now, the band has refined their grindy sound into something dark yet crisp. This record is going to be an absolute monster, and you can even hear a little bit of it in the documentary.“
