San Diego’s Cattle Decapitation have forged a career by consistently churning out bludgeoning deathgrind ugliness since their late-’90s formation, though they’ve evolved from a fairly primitive, pummeling grindcore group to a more musically nuanced and layered act. The band’s more recent efforts, such as 2015’s The Anthropocene Extinction, are relentless assaults of double-bass drumming and guitar work that is equal parts technicality and buzzsaw ugliness, punctuated by vocalist Travis Ryan alternating between some of the most guttural death grunts and heartiest bellows in today’s extreme-metal scene. The band’s lyrical themes and song titles are gross enough to satisfy the more gore-obsessed portion of the genre’s fan base, but Cattle Decapitation’s pro-environment, pro-animal, anti-mankind agenda gives extra color to their musical attack.
