Biography

San Diego, United States (1996 – present)

Cattle Decapitation are an American band from San Diego, California.

Originally founded in 1996, Cattle Decapitation’s songs protest the mistreatment and consumption of animals as well as the abuse of the environment. Lyrics may also focus on subjects such as misanthropy and genocide of the human race. Much of their music is based on putting humans in the situations that animals are subjected to (animal testing, slaughter, etc).

Their 2002 album To Serve Man saw controversy in Germany, where distribution company SPV refused to handle the album due to its graphic cover. The cover of the 2004 album Humanure, featuring a cow excreting human remains, was reportedly censored without permission from the label in some outlets. Record store owners did not display the album, making it difficult for customers to find and buy it.

Former member Gabe Serbian is a member of the band The Locust.

Metal author and journalist Garry Sharpe-Young once acknowledged the band as “one of the few metal bands whose message hits as hard as their music.”

Cattle Decapitation has toured with many bands including Suffocation, Cryptopsy, The Black Dahlia Murder, Deicide, Behemoth, Hate Eternal, Krisiun, and Job for a Cowboy. Their latest album The Harvest Floor was released in 2009.

    "I don't know what's more mindless. PETA fanatics or mentality suggesting disliking everything they endorse." I'm not a vegan, or vegetarian for that matter, but I don't have anything against people that are. I'm not sure why veganism offends people. Haven't listened to this band for about 10 years. Have they improved? I couldn't take them seriously as a spinoff from that wretched hipster band The Locust.

    PETA endorsed Cattle Decapitation for their efforts years ago. They deserve more attention from the vegan community.
