STUDIO UPDATE FROM OUR DRUMMER @mcgrawcattledecap "We’re currently on day #2 of drum tracking at Flatline Audio with Dave Otero, and let me tell you, it’s sounding MASSIVE! Here’s what I’m using for my fourth album with Cattle Decapitation: Shells: Sakae Drums (Sakae Rhythm Musical Instrument Ltd.) The Almighty series, in Birch. These shells are handmade in Osaka, pure Japanese Birch! Deep and controlled tone, while providing tons of attack. Easily the best drums I’ve ever tracked with. Snare: ddrum USA “The Hammer” Brass Snare. This snare is blowing my mind right now. During live performances, it’s loud and punchy, while still providing great control in the studio. Cymbals: A mixed variety of SABIAN HH/AA/AAX. Perfect for both live and studio, really happy with the way the cymbals are projecting and the road worthy durability I’ve always been able to count on. Drumsticks: Los Cabos Drumsticks. Red Hickory Artist series, which is a slightly bigger version of their 2b. These are the most durable and comfortable/balanced sticks I’ve used in my career. They don’t break (they just wear down) and they help provide all that punch and volume which is so critical in fast and powerful drumming. This will be my last record using my Axis Longboards, as I am currently in the process of switching to ACD Unlimited pedals, cannot wait!" More studio updates coming soon! #sakae #almightybirch #ddrum #thehammer #sabian #loscabosdrumsticks #axis #roland #axis #cattledecapitation #postanthropocene

Soreption Drop Off Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Etc. Tour

Soreption have been forced to drop off Suffocation’s final tour with Frank Mullen due to visa issues. The band were supposed to serve as the opening act on the trek, which also features Cattle Decapitation and Krisiun. Visceral Disgorge will be taking their place.

Soreption commented:

“To our fans in North America, unfortunately the visa issues that forced us to depart Summer Slaughter early have still not resolved themselves and we are forced to step down from the upcoming Suffocation Death Chopping Tour.

We were excited to join our good friends on this tour as well as get our new music out to our fans so this is a disappointment for us. We ask our fans to support the tour and the other artists on tour including Visceral Disgorge who will be taking our place in the lineup.

This tour is sure to kill and should not be missed! Don’t worry, as soon as this is cleared up we’ll be getting out to you to celebrate the release!”

Suffocation added:

“Unfortunately due to Visa Issues Soreption is forced to step down from the tour. Taking their place in the lineup will be Visceral Disgorge. We wish the best to Soreption but we know that Visceral Disgorge will not disappoint!”

Ryan said the following about the release:

“‘Medium Rarities‘ is a project we started about 10 years ago, and we’re thrilled to see it finally happen! In 2008, I started compiling unreleased tracks, import bonus tracks and 7″ releases for a rarities release – and even had the art created by the legendary Wes Benscoter, when we discovered that a key track was missing that we wanted to include on it.

Our album ‘To Serve Man‘ had a bonus track ready in case there was a Japanese version released, but that never happened – and the band members’ copies of the track got lost, seemingly forever! We felt a rarities compilation released without that bonus track would be a weird idea, and so the project got shelved until recently.

Heather Parsons of Metal Blade finally was able to unearth the track from an old disc that was tucked away in the Metal Blade vault! The lyrics to the song were unearthed along with it, and so we quickly got to work with compiling and mastering the rest. This is a nice, concise compilation of unreleased and hard-to-find tracks, complete with lyrics and cheeky vinyl color variant schemes, based on how people like their meat prepared.

The European vinyl variants also resemble diseased meats…But my favorite part is the cassette, which was created to look like the vintage cassette releases we grew up on – complete with the old school Metal Blade axe logo! A lot of thought and work went into this release, and we are pleased to finally be able to present to you…’Medium Rarities‘!”
