CATTLE DECAPITATION have enlisted famed Pop Culture artist Tom Bunk (best known for his contributions to MAD Magazine, and is an original artist for Topps trading cards Garbage Pail Kids) for a very special commissioned project which will accompany the release of CATTLE DECAPITATIONs new album which is due out May 8th, 2012. Quite often every living, breathing piece of meat in North America and beyond had their first introduction to gore through trading cards called GARBAGE PAIL KIDS. These trading cards depicted cute little humans disemboweling, skinning, devouring, soiling, roasting, impaling and most importantly urinating on themselves which had many a parent, teacher and school official in a very publicized uproar over their cards infiltrating their schools, homes and a whole hell of a lot of kids backpacks. Tom Bunk was gracious enough to create individual pieces of art for each member of Cattle Decap, heavily influenced by and practically just as they appeared in the Garbage Pail Kids series of the 80s!

Check out the poster and trailer below for the movie, which comes out in limited release on October 7th. My suggestion? Buy this shirt and wear it to a screening. Better hurry, the film has already been banned in the UK due to its intense subject matter.

San Diego grind legends Cattle Decapitation are hard at work on their 7th album. The band posted a teaser to start the foaming of the collective mouths of their fan base:

Guitarist Josh Elmore had to say about the release:
“As it comes down to the home stretch before recording, we have been focusing on getting the last two songs written as well as refining and tightening the tracks which are already completed. The overwhelming impression I get from this new batch of tunes is that they have benefitted greatly from a more streamlined approach to composition and song structure. A lot of these songs are very ‘to-the-point’ with just enough embellishment to keep them dynamic, whilst avoiding sinking into some bells-and-whistles mire. Lean and mean.

“There will be no forays in 8-string djentiness and none of us bought v-neck shirts or deck shoes to ‘modernize’ our sound and look, respectively. Expect some riffy, ripping blackened deathgrind with nods to our past work and tastes of what’s to come. These songs are going to be a blast to play live and we are anxious to have these recorded and get on the road to play them for you.”

I’m sold! Speaking of selling, score some killer merch from your favorite Vegan heroes at the Cattle Decapitation official merch store.

Cattle Decapitation will embark on a month long tour titled “The California Blood Tour.” Son of Aurelius will provide support along with Devourment, Knights of the Abyss, and Burning the Masses.

Cattle Decapitation frontman Travis Ryan comments: “We’ve had this idea for a tour that was mostly comprised of California bands for quite a while now. I don’t know, there was just something about the term ‘California love’ (popularized by Tupac Shakur) that never quite sat right with us so we came up with something a little more fitting, considering the level of brutality that California has always had under its belt. From the seedy sewers in the big cities to the ‘Cowshwitz’ communities of central CA to the inhospitable depravity of the dry desert, we decided it was time to show the rest of the US that CaliGOREnia is not just about hippies, silicone bodies and marijuana dispensaries (not that there’s anything wrong with that, haha!)”

I recently had the chance to sit down with members of some of our bands that will be appearing at this years California Metalfest. We discussed a variety of topics ranging from their favorite merch designs to the rigors of festival protocol. Big thanks to the guys for taking time out of their busy schedules to answer these questions. Enjoy.

TR: Travis Ryan / Cattle Decapitation
DD: David Davidson / Revocation
SR: Steve Regan / Annotations Of An Autopsy
CG: Cary Geare / Son Of Aurelius
JP: John Parkin/ Gaza
JN: Jason Netherton/ Misery Index

1) Introduce yourself: What band are you in and what do you play?
TR: Travis Ryan, vocals and merch commissioner for Cattle Decapitation.
DD: Hey I’m Dave and I play guitar and do vocals for Revocation.
SR: Steve, I shout angry things at a mic and throw kids about in UK death band Annotations Of An Autopsy.
CG: I’m Cary Geare and I play lead guitar in Son of Aurelius.
JP: Hi, This is Jon from Gaza
JN: Greetings! I am Jason from Misery Index, I play bass and contribute to vocals along with
my geetarist. 

2) What is your favorite piece of merch you’ve done?
TR: Very tough question because we’ve had so many cool merch items. Probably one of my personal faves is the Waffle House shirt we did. It has the classic Waffle House style building on the front but the sign says “cattle Decapitation” instead of Waffle House. On the back is the clencher and what really gave me the idea to do the shirt, it reads: “Try our world famous HUMANS – try them scattered, smothered, covered, chunked and spewed” which is a take off on how they prepare their hash browns. If you have been there, you would get it. But the best designs are still to come… an apron that reads “kill the cook” instead of “kiss the cook” and a Gore Not Core hoodie with a built in “scene cut” hair piece that hangs down in front of one eye.
DD: My favorite merch design we’ve had so far has been the Re-Animaniac t shirt. It was done by Digestor from the band Ghoul.

SR: I’d say our new basketball shorts we have on this tour, they look so sick I wanna wear them. That and our glow in the dark neon green and black longsleeze, me and Jamie did the design, it’s a version of our emblem with snakes around it, looks filthy!
CG: I’m a big fan of the Sonic shirt. It’s based off the Sonic 2 video game on the Genesis, we all grew up playing that game and it has a lot of nostalgia wrapped up in it. Plus it’s good to have fun designs that are not straight brutal death metal art.

JP: I’d have to say the eyeless ram T. We took some of the art from our I Dont Care Where I Go When I Die record. It’s a simple design, but it’s pissed.
JN: Probably the “Cree” shirt – it features a native american in head dress yet with a skull face, its very poignant to the quote on the
back, which is a quite famous Cree statement on the finite nature of the planet’s ecology, and how once we destroy our resources, it will be very hard to eat only ‘money!’

3) Is it hard for your band to agree on merch designs?  Is there a designer everyone in your band can agree on?
TR: I’m pretty much the one who commissions designs and of course I run everything by the rest of the guys before production. I’ve had some dumb ideas and luckily they were there to stop me, and vise versa. We rarely butt heads on designs. In fact we’ve been really pleased with the last few years of designs.

DD: Naw we all kinda sit down and check out different artists that we’d like to work with so everyone has to agree with each other in terms of merch designs. Digestor was a no brainer since we’re all Ghoul fans and his art has an awesome vibe old school vibe to it.
SR: Me and Jamie do a lot of the AOAA designs but we really like the work of Brandon Hart from Cali, his work is so sick and he’s a super nice guy, we don’t even have to give him much of a run down of what we want, he just knows. Also Godmachine is real sick!
CG: Our singer Josh really get’s into the merch designs, he has great ideas for designs and we’re no too picky about it. We usually dig on what he comes up with. We’re all about a good variety of designs so if there’s a design I might not wear personally it doesn’t matter as long as it’s cool and it fits with the band.
JP: No, we usually have our heads pointed in the same direction. Tino and I handle most of the art stuff and run it past the other guys. We have a couple friends I’ve worked with directly. Coty Crieghton and Josh Winager have Been our go to guys. Mike Whalburg in Philly is rad as well.

JN: Well I sort of work one on one with our design guy, who is in Germany, and develop shirt concepts around particular album titles, the once we come up with something interesting I present it to the other guys for approval. Usually everyone is on board, and changes are minor if at all.

4) What’s the best part of playing a festival as opposed to a regular show?
TR: The only real thing for me is the fact that you only get 20 mins or so to show what you got. In this extreme style that we’re playing, we almost shine under pressure and it’s nice to go out and destroy for a short period of time and really go nuts. It’s hard to keep up that stamina live so 20 or 30 mins isn’t that bad.
DD: Fests are cool since you’re playing to bigger crowds and get the chance to expose your band to a broader audience.
SR: With regular shows there’s not a lot of time to hang out, load in, play, load out and leave, with all dayers and fests, You get to hang out a lot more, catch up with friends in other bands, hang with the fans and see some sick bands, also means we get to drink wayyyy more which is pretty important, well to us.
CG: Meeting all the other bands, playing for a larger audience with more diverse tastes.
JP: Unless you’re a bigger band they kind of suck. But hanging with the bigger bands and industry people is cool. At the new England Metal Fest last week we watched Cannibal Corpse from 10 feet away back stage.
JN: The friends all in once place- usually we get to see a variety of friends from all over a particular area, and that includes crossing paths with bands we have toured with, or even getting to see many cool bands at one show. Also the set times are usually short, we can play and enjoy the show afterwards for quite awhile.

5) What band are you excited to see at California Metalfest?
TR: Hmmmmm. Tough question as I’m not into much modern stuff as far as metal goes. It’d be cool to see Fear Factory play with that lineup. Hopefully they play some stuff from the first album. There’s plenty of other good bands playing that day but we’ve toured with most of em already so it’s hard to be excited about seeing ANY band for the zillionth time.
DD: I’m pretty stoked to see Misery Index, they ripped it last time I saw them.
SR: To be honest most of them, cause were from the UK we’ve not got to see a lot of these bands, stoked to finally see Fear Factory that’s gonna be sick! Also Gaza and Decrepit Birth! The whole fest is insane.
CG: So many great bands this year, I’m really digging on seeing Revocation on day one and seeing The Faceless play is always a blast!
JP: Earth Crisis and Sleeping Giant. It will be good to see our friends in Job For A Cowboy, Whitechapel, and Cattle Decapitation again as well.
JN: On the day we play, I am stoked to see old touring friends in Job For A Cowboy, Fear Factory, Cattle Decapitation, as well as numerous newer bands that I dig like Revocation and Gaza.
