Review: Cattle Decapitation – The Anthropocene Extinction

As a long time fan of Cattle Decapitation, I somewhat knew what to expect going in, but when I first listened to the album I was beyond amazed. To be honest, I thought “Monolith of Inhumanity” was their best record of them all, but that title now firmly belongs to ‘The Athropocene Extinction.’ Speedy, punishingly heavy drums; impressively fast guitar solos; chugging, extremely technical riffs; hauntingly demonic vocals; and deep, guttural death growls are the hallmarks making for a seriously brutal album. Brutal death metal and grindcore fans will find much to love with this album, especially with the legendary Philip Anselmo lending his talents on ‘The Prophets of the Loss.’ Of the 12 songs included in the final release, without a doubt “Manufactured Extinct” and “Circo Inhumanitas” are the shiniest gems of them all. Of course, there really isn’t a single bad song on the entire album; these are just the two that struck the hardest. Least to say, this is an album you’re going to want to play on repeat over and over. 10/10
