The Anthropocene Extinction is the forthcoming new full-length from San Diego deathgrind icons, CATTLE DECAPITATION. Set for world wide release August 7th, 2015 via Metal Blade Records, the followup to 2012's Monolith Of Inhumanity was again captured by producer Dave Otero at Flatline Audio in Denver, Colorado, and includes guest appearances from the legendary Philip H. Anselmo, Tristan Shone/Author & Punisher and BETHLEHEM's Mr. Jurgen Bartsch.

Thematically, with The Anthropocene Extinction we are transported forward to man's last gasps, reminiscent of what is currently going on with the Laysan Albatrosses on the island of Midway Atoll. The birds and aquatic wildlife of the Pacific Ocean are mistaking the vast amounts of man-made plastic items for food, ingesting it and are dying in large numbers, rotting where they fall and exposing to the world what is happening to the ecosystems of the earth's oceans - the most unknown and unexplored part of our planet. The breakdown of the earth's ecosystems has begun long ago due to human interaction as well as the domino effect that will surely seal the fate for our species: The Anthropocene Extinction.

As a precursor to its release, the band is offering up seventh track and second single, "Mammals In Babylon", for communal appreciation. Offers guitarist Josh Elmore:

""Mammals In Babylon" was one of the earliest songs written for the new album. At that time we had completed several other tunes that fell more on the epic side of our writing style. As a foil to that strategy, "Mammals" came about based upon a desire to concoct a no-BS, straight-forward ripper. Blending a brutal death metal assault with groovier passages that leads into a bleak, yet triumphant chorus, "Mammals" has a pounding quality that gives way to a buzz-sawing completion. All the while [vocalist] Travis' [Ryan] lyrics frame humanity's infancy in paradise and our evolution to 'maturity' which now finds us dwelling in a wasteland of our own creation. We invite you to take a listen to the next track from The Anthropocene Extinction."

Witness "Mammals In Babylon" below.

Coinciding with The Anthropocene Extinction's official unveiling, CATTLE DECAPITATION will appear on this year's edition of the Summer Slaughter Tour with ARCH ENEMY, BORN OF OSIRIS, VEIL OF MAYA, OBSCURA and more. Slated to commence on July 28th in Denver, the trek will run through nearly two dozen cities, coming to a close August 24th in Los Angeles.

In conjunction with the Summer Slaughter Tour, the band is very pleased to announce a special Halfway To Slaughter contest! It's easy to enter.
