Your Chops Aren’t Ready for this Cattle Decapitation Full-Band Playthrough

One of the most exciting metal albums of the year so far is Cattle Decapitation’s The Anthropocene Extinction. Its pure insanity – ridiculous performances, piercing guitar tones, and a production style that uses “grating” as its point of entry into your speaker canals – but it’s not the kind of metal album of its subgenre that you can really pick apart by its components.


This may be due in part to how rigorously performed this record sounds, as opposed to so many extreme metal albums that feel more like they were tracked. Get a sense of guitarist Josh Elmore, bassist Derek Engemann, and drummer Dave McGraw’s collective chops in this full band playthrough for “Pacific Grim”
