Cattle Decapitation 'Death Atlas' New Zealand Shows Announced

C.C. / Monday 21st October, 2019 8:00AM

US extreme metal masters Cattle Decapitation are returning to Aotearoa in 2020, playing Auckland and Wellington headline events celebrating the release of Death Atlas, the staunchly political group's first long player since 2015's The Anthropocene Extinction. Founded in 1996, Cattle Decapitation have unflinchingly delivered anthems railing against the mistreatment of animals and mankind's abuse of the environment over six eardrum-destroying, gore-filled studio albums and counting. Last here in 2018 subjecting local punters to their blistering aural assault, Cattle Decapitation's singer Travis Ryan shared his excitement for the band's upcoming latest collection, releasing in late November...

“Fans soon will witness the culmination of this last year’s blood, sweat and tears honed to a devastating, brutal and impactful audio document that I feel will resonate with fans of the last few records for years to come... Musically and lyrically, there is a lot of grief, anger, hate, passion and emotion poured into this one and we have found these can be excellent ingredients for extreme metal. We are once again rejuvenated and ready to spread the death and despair over this sphere that is perpetually being torn apart by us insignificants.”

UPDATE 5/02/20: strictly limited VIP passes (sound check then meet and greet) are now available...

Press release:

One of the most devastating, blistering and sonically brutal tours of 2020 will hit New Zealand in February, when death/grind masters CATTLE DECAPITATION return to pulverise audiences.

Fiercely uncompromising, confronting and utterly annihilating, CATTLE DECAPITATION are one of the most significant forces in extreme metal’s broad spectrum. Consistently delivering genre bending releases since 1996, this band are emissaries of inconvenient truths, a constant reminder of the awfulness wrought upon the natural world by the human race.

Touring in support of their forthcoming slab of brutality Death Atlas, their bleakest release to date. The cover art says it all, a stooped, skeletal Grim Reaper carrying the burnt-out husk of our planet on his back. "The core concept of this record is humanity's insignificance despite what we've convinced ourselves," explains vocalist Travis Ryan.

Live, CATTLE DECAPITATION are an unrelenting cacophony of savagery, a frenzied maelstrom of pure deathgrind carnage, suffocating all in their wake. Expect nothing less than the absolute pinnacle of extremity.
