News: Cattle Decapitation Drop Single ‘Scourge Of The Offspring’

Death metal kings Cattle Decapitation, have released a brutal new single and video for the track “Scourge Of The Offspring.” Cattle Decapitation’s new record Terrasite is set for release May 12 via Metal Blade Records.

Vocalist Travis Ryan states:

“I wanted to do the 180-degree opposite of ‘Death Atlas.’ I already had the concept idea from years back, and since ‘Death Atlas’ was so dark and brooding, I wanted a completely opposite effect—I wanted this to take place in the daylight. I’ve always found daytime horror to be really unsettling so I wanted to make sure what was going on on the cover took place in the light of day, which also finds its place within the lyrics.”

Regarding the lyrical direction of Terrasite, Ryan elaborates:

“…from a place of distress. Anger, rage, resentment, depression, anxiety, a poor outlook on our species both on a day-to-day level, a broader, worldly level as well as a philosophical level… ‘Scourge Of The Offspring’ makes up the bulk of the album’s concept that the first song, ‘Terrasitic Adaptation,’ and the cover art sort of set into motion. In the first song, we find out what’s going on on the cover, and this song deals more with what our children will end up being—adult humans, shat out and left to make sense of this world only to end up being part of the problem simply by existing.”

Terrasite features artwork by longtime collaborator Wes Benscoter (Vader, Kreator, Bloodbath, Hypocrisy). It was produced by Dave Otero (Cephalic Carnage, Allegaeon) and features Tony Parker of Midnight Odyssey handling piano and synths.
