Video Premiere: CATTLE DECAPITATION's 'Clandestine Ways (Krokodil Rot)'
May 19, 2016
"Clandestine Ways (Krokodil Rot)", the new video from San Diego-based deathgrind masters CATTLE DECAPITATION, can be seen below. The clip was once again directed by Mitch Masse, who previously helmed the band's video for "Your Disposal".
CATTLE DECAPITATION frontman Travis Ryan comments: "Mitch Massie once again hurls us into a nightmarish world of the eye for an eye table turning that CATTLE DECAPITATION lyrics exude, but this time in a much more surreal manner. Here we see the circus has come to town and with it a grisly 'freaks' exhibit featuring the barbaric aftermath of what the protagonists (the 'Ringmaster' and a freed 'specimen') have done to the leading researchers at Cosmeugenics Laboratories — a place where cosmetics testing is performed on earthen creatures all in the name of human vanity — but this time by completely incorrectly administering the clandestine, flesh-eating drug 'krokodil.' I'll leave out the horrific details as you'll have to see that for yourself!"
"The Anthropocene Extinction" came out last August via Metal Blade. The CD was once again helmed by Dave Otero (ALLEGAEON, CEPHALIC CARNAGE),who worked on 2012's "Monolith Of Inhumanity".
CATTLE DECAPITATION also enlisted a surprising array of guests to help achieve their vision. The one and only legendary Philip H. Anselmo lends his throat to "The Prophets Of Loss" while recent signee to his Housecore Records label, fellow San Diegan and friend of the band, AUTHOR & PUNISHER, brings forth the industrial damnation as an intro to the track "Plagueborne". Additionally, Germany's dark metal misanthrope, Mr. Jurgen Bartsch of the almighty BETHLEHEM, lends a spoken-word piece in his native tongue to the apocalyptic final track "Pacific Grim".
The record also sees the band extending their collaboration with illustrator Wes Benscoter, who's handled the artwork for every CATTLE DECAPITATION release since 2002's "To Serve Man".
