“A Living, Breathing Piece of Defecating Meat”: If nothing else, San Diego metal extremists Cattle Decapitation can boast some of the best song titles in the grindcore business. This band needs titles like that to convey its outrage and disgust at all the hypocrisy and corruption with which this wicked world continues to infect our puny little minds. The veteran crew’s kinda schizo sound spans the black-/grind-/death-/grotesquerie-metal areas of endeavor, with running lyrical themes regarding the impending apocalypse and how to either stun it into submission or hasten its sickly creep with artful (tuneful, even) brutality. This major night of creative noise also features sets by Theories, Bad Acid Trip, Fetus Eaters and Doesn’t Matter. Recommended if you like bashing your own skull ’til your brain pops out.
