Long-running San Diego, California deathgrind outfit Cattle Decapitation will release their tenth studio album, Terrasite, May 12th via Metal Blade Records.
The band‘s follow-up to 2019‘s critically adored Death Atlas full-length was again produced by Dave Otero (Allegaeon, Khemmis, Archspire), and is dedicated to the memory of former drummer Gabe Serbian who passed away in April 2022.
Commenting on the album, 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.”
Terrasite comes with startling new artwork provided by longtime collaborator Wes Benscoter (Vader, Kreator, Bloodbath, Hypocrisy) and you can check out the artwork here.
Speaking about the artwork, vocalist Ryan explains:
“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.”
