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.
