News: Cattle Decapitation to Release ‘Terrasite’ on May 12 Via Metal Blade Records

Long-running San Diego, California deathgrind outfit Cattle Decapitation will release their tenth studio album, Terrasite, May 12 via Metal Blade Records.

The band’s follow-up to 2019’s critically adored Death Atlas full-length was again produced by Dave Otero (Allegaeon, Khemmis, Archspire) with startling new artwork by longtime collaborator Wes Benscoter (Vader, Kreator, Bloodbath, Hypocrisy).

Vocalist Travis Ryan shares his thoughts:

“We’ve all heard the old saying about how the cockroach is so pervasive… so invasive… so insidious… that they could survive a nuclear war… Our previous album, ‘Death Atlas,’ left the world blackened and lifeless.. or so we thought. It turns out that the carbon-encrusted bodies that adorned the album’s layout and music video (and that resemble the victims of Pompeii that were frozen in time by the Mt. Vesuvius disaster of 79 A.D.) were actually more of a cocoon stage for something much more vicious to come: Humanity 2.0.

On the cover, we see the terrasite, aka ‘earth-eater,’ molting from its ootheca. Having lived the tortuous existence of being a human, they have now re-emerged into a new world… saddened… confused… PISSED, rebirthed as a new variant of human disease, now adapted to continue and finish the utter ravaging of its home planet, Earth.”

Stay tuned for further info on Terrasite to be revealed in the weeks to come.
