cattle decap to serve man vinyl

I’m a fairly recent fan of California deathgrind outfit Cattle Decapitation, having enjoyed The Harvest Floor in passing when it first came out and absolutely loving Monolith of Inhumanity. I already own Monolith of Inhumanity on vinyl, but I’ve long since missed out on the band’s back catalogue of records. Fortunately, Metal Blade’s got my back on this one. They’re undergoing the huge task of pressing every Cattle Decap record to vinyl in 2014.

The Shining scared the shit out of me as a child. Jack Torrance wasn’t like the monsters I’d seen in Alien and Nightmare On Elm Street — he was far too human. So, I’m always appreciative of a good Shining reference and ‘Dead End‘, the new video from Aussie mentalists King Parrot, twists the classic tale into a thrashy, humour-ridden, beer-shotgunning party. It’s as great as it sounds:

Summer Slaughter 2013

Mayhem Fest may be the biggest mainstream metal package tour of the year, but Summer Slaughter is where the best bet is in regards to quality extreme and progressive metal. This year’s lineup consisted of headliners The Dillinger Escape Plan with support from Animals as Leaders, Periphery, Cattle Decapitation, and more! Check out the photos from the Philadelphia stop of the tour below courtesy of Maclyn Bean Photography.

Monolith Of Inhumanity may have been released over a year ago now, but that hasn’t stopped Cattle Decapitation teaming up once again with director Mitch Massie, this time to bring us a new video for ‘Your Disposal‘. Now it’s no nightmare-fuel like ‘Forced Gender Reassignment‘ was, but it’s got that distinctive dark, creepy, squishy quality that he is so good at invoking and I’m really glad they gave ‘Your Disposal‘ the attention it deserves, as it was by far one of my favourite tracks on the album. Wait till you hear the chorus, it’s just unique, for lack of a better term.

Monolith Of Inhumanity made it on to nearly everyone’s best-of list last year, and with good reason. The band’s opus, it transcended the genre and incorporated some new elements the band never had before, making it one of the best records in the genre. Today the band have announced the release of an awesome 7″ of ‘Your Disposal’ which also feature the B-Side Japanese exclusive track ‘An Exposition Of Insides‘. Hell yes.

Thy Art is Murder are one of the fastest growing up-and-coming bands we’ve seen in some time. This Australian deathcore band practically appeared over night, releasing their debut album Hate to a fair bit of acclaim before being signed to Nuclear Blast. Just a year later, the group narrowly beat out internet sensations Rings of Saturn for the opening spot on this year’s Summer Slaughter Tour. This month (June 2013), the group did a string of headlining shows around their homeland, bringing Cattle Decapitation, King Parrot, and Aversions Crown in tow as support. Photographer William France attended the tour’s opening night in Brisbane at The Rev. Photos can be viewed below!

Summer Slaughter 2013

This year’s iteration of The Summer Slaughter Tour — which features headliners The Dillinger Escape Plan and support from Periphery, Animals as Leaders, Norma Jean, Cattle Decapitation, The Ocean, Revocation, Aeon, Rings of Saturn, and Thy Art Is Murder — is likely the most exciting tour I’ll have a shot at seeing in 2013. Sure, the death metal elitists and deathcore fanboys aren’t all too stoked on this year’s iteration of the annual trek, but I find it impossible to NOT get excited over a bulk of this lineup.

What makes this tour so excellent from my perspective is that they always seem to hit the appropriate secondary markets for me. Knoxville, Louisville, Cincinnati, or Columbus tend to be hit by Summer Slaughter. Sure enough, while not incredibly extensive yet (dates are still waiting to be announced) the tour at least manages to pass through the midwest/southeast. Dates are as follows:

Summer Slaughter 2013

Last week, the year’s biggest extreme metal tour Summer Slaughter announced their lineup (which includes headliners The Dillinger Escape Plan and an array of other Heavy Blog favorites like Animals as Leaders, Periphery, Cattle Decapitation, The Ocean, Revocation, and more) while letting fans vote on who they wanted to see open the show. After a neck-and-neck race between Thy Art Is Murder and Rings of Saturn, it looks like Rings of Saturn have won by a slim 1% of the vote.

Who the hell is Famt Wang, you ask?! He’s a graphic artist who has done shirt designs for the likes of Reflections and Bound by Exile, he is the creator of a line of limited edition guitar picks for Carnifex, Dweller, and Ophidian I, and member of up-and-coming death metal band Blue Waffle (for the love of Christ, don’t Google them). He reached out to us concerning his very own Top 10 list and we were happy to oblige! Read his thoughts on the year below.

So, I wanted my top 10 list to not get lost in my 1,000,000 blog posts a day on Facebook; so I asked my friend over at Heavy Blog is Heavy to post it for me. Luckily they all think my music taste is great and that I’m funny as fuck, or I wouldn’t have been worked into the last day of publishing. 2012, has been a year full of jacking off, bad relationships, and somewhat decent music; at least for me. Communications was my focus for this year, and laying low. I think I got high more then anything in the last year and just blasted music. 2013 will be much more productive; my band will actually make real music and not fuck up splits with other bands, I’ll produce more guitar picks, and I’ll still smoke way too much weed. Here’s my top 10 releases of 2012.
