Cattle Decapitation Shares “Death Atlas” Artwork, Pre-Orders Go Live

Death Metal giants Cattle Decapitation have shared the Wes Benscoter designed artwork from their upcoming album Death Atlas, due on November 29th via Metal Blade. Pre-orders have also gone live with cool bundle options including an autographed laminate. The band will perform new music starting tomorrow on The Summer Slaughter Tour. Check out the artwork below as well as samples of new music!

Vocalist Travis Ryan comments:

“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!”

Produced by Dave Otero (, Death Atlas will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow (July 19th), exclusively at the 2019 Summer Slaughter Tour – which will see Cattle Decapitation close each show!
