November 8th, 2017

San Diego, California-based death metal group Cattle Decapitation have released a guitar playthrough video for the track ‘Circo Inhumanitas’ featuring Josh Elmore. Directed by Paul McGuire for Obscenery Films, the clip can be viewed below.

Cattle Decapitation issued seventh full-length studio album The Anthropocene Extinction on August 7th, 2015 through Metal Blade Records.

Anthropocene is a proposed term for the present geological epoch (from the time of the Industrial Revolution onwards), during which humanity has arguably begun to have a significant impact on the environment.

The outing was produced by Dave Otero at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado, once again. Erstwhile Pantera and current Down vocalist Phil Anselmo lends guest parts to the track ‘The Prophets Of Loss’. Tristan Shone from fellow San Diegan act Author & Punisher supplies an introduction to the track ‘Plagueborne’, meanwhile. And as well, Jurgen Bartsch of German dark metal outfit Bethlehem lends a spoken word piece in German to closing track ‘Pacific Grim’.

Cover artwork duties fell to Wes Benscoter once again, who has handled artwork duties since 2002 outing To Serve Man.

The track listing is as follows;

01. ‘Manufactured Extinct’
02. ‘The Prophets Of Loss’ (feat. Phil Anselmo)
03. ‘Plagueborne’ (feat. Tristan Shone)
04. ‘Clandestine Ways (Krokodil Rot)’
