Cattle Decapitation’s new album, ‘Terrasite‘ continues to push the CATTLE DECAPITATION sound further into more epic, and varied territory and is by far, one of the top extreme metal releases of the year.

Vocalist,  Travis Ryan explains the album’s governing concept; “I wanted to do the 180° 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.”
