Cattle Decapitation say in this video that they are making a new album, and then they play a new song, called An Extreme Indifference to Human Life:

Anyway, the question is whether they will continue their very high quality of the recent albums.

Hard to tell from that clip but hopefully the quality remains the same.

Well, not a cool cover as I thought compared to the last two.

One would think that there is either indifference or partiality to human life. What is the difference between indifference and extreme indifference? And given the person with those claims must be living to have a disposition at all, they would not be indifferent. After all, being an example of human life they aren't indifferent to their own life.

Say what? So for the simple fact that they were born human they're hypocrites for having a critique on the human condition? Plus it's art/performance. We don't take it as literally as possible, that'd be rather obtuse.

Some pretty extreme positions on their cover arts! I think this one looks awesome, and I think most of their covers have looked pretty good as a whole. Humanure anyone? Its originality alone is a great mark for it, and it's Benscoter so it's excellently painted too. Hell I think it's an iconic image for death metal, or it would be if the music was a bit better.

Anyway i'm pretty tired of Cattle Decap. As wicked as the art is I can't say i'm excited. While I loved Travis' snarling cleans when he first introduced them, I feel they've been turned into a gimmick or crutch for the songs for too many albums now. It's still a pretty unique vocal, especially in death metal, so if they continue adding them to a bunch of songs i'd understand, but it's too much for me. Seems when those became a standard inclusion to their writing, the songs became more... streamlined? Or simplistic, in the riffs and rhythms. When Dave McGraw came in for The Harvest Floor, the whole band and rhythm section just went nuts. All the halting and twisting spasmodic tech dm sounds they were trying to get off the ground through two ...underwhelming drummers finally came together like a meteor strike on that album. But since then? I haven't found much that's memorable and my ears are tired of those vocals now.

Well we're all hypocrites, desiring and critiquing the very same things simultaneously. Critiquing it is a very effective way we hide the fact we desire it.

That's fair, but I have the opposite reaction. I really like his cleans. I'm sure there's going to be plenty of them in the new album and I'm keen to hear them. :)

Agreed, I think the cleans are excellent and have so far always been utilized well.

Cattle Decap is playing here tonight with The Faceless and some other bands. I am trying to decide if it's worth going. I like CD, not so much The Faceless or the rest.

The cover art for this looks pretty dope! I'm definitely excited for this album.
