Cattle Decapitation have revealed the cover art, created by artist Wes Benscoter, for their upcoming record Death Atlas. They have also released a new teaser for that record that features new music from the group. Frontman Travis Ryan commented:
“We have crafted what we feel is our strongest album to date and we are really looking forward to bringing a couple of the tracks off of it to lacerate your eardrums on this upcoming Summer Slaughter Tour! Fans soon will witness the culmination of this last year’s blood, sweat, and tears honed to a devastating, brutal, and impactful audio document that I feel will resonate with fans of the last few records for years to come. Musically and lyrically, there is a lot of grief, anger, hate, passion, and emotion poured into this one and we have found these can be excellent ingredients for extreme metal. We are once again rejuvenated and ready to spread the death and despair over this sphere that is perpetually being torn apart by us insignificants. There is no map to guide you out of this one – Death Atlas is coming!”
Death Atlas is scheduled for release on November 29th through Metal Blade Records. The band is currently out headlining this year’s Summer Slaughter Tour.
