Cattle Decapitation start mixing new album
It's no secret that San Diego's Cattle Decapitation have been writing and recording a new album, but other than that, fans are still in the dark about anything to do with it. The band has said next to nothing about their upcoming release (I literally know nothing about it!) but in a Facebook message to fans today they promise to unload a bunch of info about the album on us all really soon. Here's what they had to say:
"Mixing of our new album has begun! We can already tell this will be our best production of any of our records yet. Fans of The Harvest Floor and To Serve Man will be stoked!
Album title, track list, guest appearances, pre-order info and the awesome conceptual cover art by Wes Benscoter coming soon!"
That's a lot of info to drop all at once! I suppose it's worth mentioning that Benscoter also created the cover art for Cattle's 2009 album 'The Harvest Floor' as well as designing artwork for Autopsy, Sentinel and the almighty Slayer. But regardless of what the album cover looks like, or what the album is titled for that matter, this should be on your list of shit to check out in 2012. I don't think the guys are tooting their own horn when they say that this is their best production yet. They keep getting better, year after year.
