Long-running San Diego, California, deathgrind outfit Cattle Decapitation will release its 10th studio album, “Terrasite,” on May 12, 2023, via Metal Blade Records.
The band’s follow-up to 2019’s “Death Atlas” full-length again was produced by Dave Otero (Allegaeon, Khemmis, Archspire) with artwork by longtime collaborator Wes Benscoter (Vader, Kreator, Bloodbath, Hypocrisy).
Vocalist Travis Ryan said: “We’ve all heard the old saying about how the cockroach is so pervasive … so invasive … so insidious … that they could survive a nuclear war … Our previous album, ‘Death Atlas,’ left the world blackened and lifeless … or so we thought. It turns out that the carbon-encrusted bodies that adorned the album’s layout and music video (and that resemble the victims of Pompeii that were frozen in time by the Mt. Vesuvius disaster of 79 A.D.) were actually more of a cocoon stage for something much more vicious to come: Humanity 2.0.
“On the cover we see the terrasite, aka ‘earth-eater,’ molting from its ootheca. Having lived the tortuous existence of being a human, they have now re-emerged into a new world … saddened … confused … PISSED; rebirthed as a new variant of human disease, now adapted to continue and finish the utter ravaging of its home planet, Earth.”
