Cattle Decapitation can be described as the bastard child of Cannibal Corpse and Carcass weaving a vicious blend of Gore. grind and Death Metal into complex structures with the end result being some of the most brutal and catchy songs writteninthe genre today. Cattle Decapitation takes a different approach to their song writing than most bands of the same sortthattend to focus mainly on fictional subject matter. The new album Humanure starts off where their debut album on MetalBladeTo Serve Man left off, dealing with the rape of the earth, it's natural resources, and the unjust treatment ofanimals.Humanure will be the album that metalheads have been longing for; something as ferocious as Cannibal Corpse,something asgutturally disgusting as Carcass, something offensively disturbing as Autopsy, and something as politicallycharged as NapalmDeath. Hailing from San Diego, CA Cattle Decapitation originally formed in 1996. The lineup initially featuredDavid Astor onbass and Gabe Serbian on drums, both of whom were then also members of the underground phenomena TheLocust. Seekinga replacement for their original vocalist, the band turned to Travis Ryan, who had actually been playing drumsfor anotherSan Diego metal band, Strangulation, in addition to serving as vocalist in a gore metal band called Anal Flatulence.With Ryanon board, Astor moved from bass to drums, and Serbian moved from drums to guitar. The 3. piece quickly releasedtwoalbums, the Human Jerky LP (on the Nevada label Satan's Pimp) and the Homovore CD/LP. Next, they added a bassist,TroyOftedal, with whom they recorded their third full-length, To Serve Man, released in the fall of 2002 on Metal Blade, amovethat would expose them to more of a death metal-oriented audience (as opposed to the hardcore/grindcore one thattheyhad mostly been playing to before). In 2002, the band added a second guitarist, Josh Elmore (formerly of 7000 DyingRats),who eventually took over as the band's sole guitarist after Serbian left in order to devote himself more fully into theLocust.

The band also has a quite large fanbase among Animal rights/liberation supporters which are usually more connected totheHardcore punk scene. When one sees through the gory image, the band is basically pro. animal/environment/earthandstrongly anti-human (also all the members are vegetarians).

The band started as a 3 piece with an unknown guitarist/vocalist, who soon allegedly vanished without the othermembersknowing anything of his whereabouts. « hide
