Cattle Decapitation announces European headline tour “Terrasite Over Europe”

San Diego, California-based deathgrind mavericks, Cattle Decapitation, announces their first European tour in support of their latest masterpiece “Terrasite” that has been released in May of 2023.

Support comes from Metal Blade labelmates 200 Stab Wounds as well as Signs of the Swarm and Vomit Forth.

“Terrasite” pushes the Cattle Decapitation sound further into more epic and varied territory, and in the hands of vocalist Travis Ryan the governing concept takes a new and disturbing direction.

“I wanted to do the 180° opposite of Death Atlas. I already had the concept idea from years back and since Death Atlas was so dark and brooding, I wanted a completely opposite effect – I wanted this to take place in the daylight. I’ve always found daytime horror to be really unsettling so I wanted to make sure what was going on on the cover took place in the light of day, which also finds its place within the lyrics.”
